Meet The Emergency Pallet Home – It Can Be Built In Less Than A Day With Just Basic Tools

When we think about emergency housing in the wake of a natural disaster, your mind may go to trailers, tents, or even makeshift shacks. While all reasonable solutions, the people at i-Beam Designs came up with an easy, inexpensive pallet-based emergency house. It can be built in a day with basic tools and without much construction experience.

You can upgrade the home by adding insulation, air conditioner, smoke detectors, or any other modern amenities.
