Mini Quonset hut
by Paul W. Elkins
(Stanwood WA USA)
This was meant for a homeless person, or as a rapid deployment emergency shelter.
The basic structure cost roughly $100.
I chose 4 sheets of 4mm fluted plastic as the material. I wanted to see how much living space could be had by bending full sheets lengthwise.
Except for the door hardware the whole structure is assembled using only zip ties. This makes the unit recycle-able.
The cabinet and water stand were made with left-overs. After 5 inches of snow the shelter stayed dry and sound.
With the unit being 81" long and 40" wide, two people could sleep fairly comfortably.
