Known as the Shelter 2.0 project three 10-by-14 foot wooden shelters were recently assembled in three days, using only a wrench and a cordless drill. The third was assembled in just five hours, including pouring a concrete footing and painting the completed unit. The shelters which aim to provide easily assembled, affordable homes following natural disasters, cost just $3,800 each to produce. Enough parts for ten shelters can fit into a standard 20-foot shipping container.
