Simple Panelized Shelter

I realize that passionate posts on solving homelessness is a little off topic for Tiny House Design but it’s a topic that seems to need more public support so I figured it was worth venturing into a potentially off-topic area. But now I’d like to bring it back to tiny houses a little more. Below are a few more views of this tiny shelter concept.

It’s basically six framed panels, floor, roof, and 4 walls. I’ve tried to keep it as simple and sturdy as possible and once the panels were complete they would be bolted together so that it could be disassembled and moved later.

When I’m finished refining the drawing I publish a simple downloadable free plan and a longer print version (plan book) that shows how it’s constructed step by step. While my intention for this kind of simple shelter is for emergencies (including homelessness) it could easily be adapted for a backyard studio, shed, or office. I can even see it serving as a simple remote cabin.
