  1. Love, love, love, your 2.0 shelters. What an amazing idea and such a great way to give back. I would like to make a smaller version of this for personal and was wondering how I could go about getting one fabricated for us to assemble at our home in NH?

    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks, Terri

  2. I have been keeping an eye on your shelter ideas for a number of years now and I like what I see over all. The down side I see is you need a CNC router to make the parts needed to build the shelter. I know the same job could be done with patterns and a router pattern bit or pattern collet. That way you only need the CNC to make the first set of patterns. That way anyone with a router could make the parts needed for this shelter.

    I think you are making it more complex than it needs to be. Over all it’s a great idea and give people a starting place to work from.


  3. I will propose using this design for CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) Resource storage. Thank you. It can be CNC routed at a TechShop.

  4. I would like to build a few of these for shop project and have a CNC router, I believe we could make them during carpentry classes and send them to chattanooga

  5. How much would the making and shipping of one of 2.0 shelters cost?
    As I writing a dissertation about emergency shelters where I compare different case studies.

  6. I was unable to find the assembly instructions as the link above did not work. I also was wondering if you had files for larger sizes.

    Thank you so much.

  7. Great shelter. I really like the way it goes together. I am not sure what I am missing but how many sheets of 4×8 material and of what thickness go into a 10×13 shelter with the ends on? The other question is, can the odd construction scrap 1/4, 1/2 sheets of material be used.

  8. Any chance you’ll be making patterns for those of us who DON’T have access to CNC, but would like to scale-up and trace-out patterns and cut by hand?

  9. Hi admin, i must say you have hi quality posts here.
    Your blog should go viral. You need initial traffic boost only.

  10. I am a mechanical design engineer / manufacturing engineer and just found out what you are doing. I would like to help you achieve what ever it is that you need most right now. I am currently working for an injection molding company where I design parts for customers. If there are parts that could be molded to help assembly or structural strength of the shelter, I would like to help with this. All engineering would be done by me at no cost to you.

  11. This seems to be a dufunct idea now….? as some things are still downloadable but others lead to site closings…Such as instructions and so on. Well it did seem like a worth while thing, but if there is support for it, I can’t find it.

    Steve, what are your thoughts? You made an excellent offer, but did you ever get any kind of reply? I do the same as well, but…………….couldn’t beat your offer… 😉
