The Vancouver Sun says that Viceroy Homes Ltd. is providing thousands of homes to earthquake and tsunami-stricken Japan with its Japanese partner of 17 years, Selco Homes, of Richmond, Ontario, Canada, just west of Ottawa. The thirty-square meter homes are each composed of 25-30 two-by-fours, plywood panels, and a steel corrugated roof, and are designed to last two years. Each unit has two bedrooms, a bath, a kitchen, and small storage room, and sells for under $10,000. President Dan Fox of Viceroy, which normally builds $200,000-$2 million homes said this is not a job he normally takes, but he has a long-standing relationship with his partner in Japan. Viceroy’s Richmond plant can turn out 50 units a week with its 130 employees. Fox anticipates he will ship 500-1000 dwellings this year.
