Here’s are some “messin’ around” sketches I had/and have drafted for someone on the side- for brainstorming ideas. The basic idea is from a rounded wedge-shaped cabin of mine that you might have seen in The NY Times’ Joyce Wadler article “The $200 Microhouse”- based on several of my mini-shelters and cabins (I’ve attached a photo (by me- OF NY Times photographer Erik Jacobs) way below…
Anyway, its a simple, building-block of a cabin- that can be expanded upon in size (VERY easily), carried by two people, quickly built, and is durable, passively solar (it could be used as a seed-starting cold frame, or hot-water batch heater/solar shower-heater too!), and was designed for potential use (larger versions of it) in disaster relief situations- a la Hurricane Katrina, and now the aftermath of the massive earthquake in Japan, for example.
So….without further talk-up/explanation, here’s some of those simple, quick, spitballed sketches- not super pretty, but the ideas are there…
