As a tiny house lover, the idea of an affordable, easy to build and very BASIC house really appeals to me. Although this project was started to help out areas in Haiti and India hardest hit by natural disasters, I think many of the ideas could be applied here in the states.
Some students have started working on structures for this challenge that will withstand additional earthquakes, which also look interesting. They have built a prototype for affordable tiny houses in Haiti.
