Description

In the aftermath of a natural disaster such as a hurricane or earthquake, victims could get more than temporary help if the structures erected to provide immediate relief could be easily converted into permanent structures. These converted, repurposed buildings could become long-term housing, schools, and clinics—or farm and light-industrial buildings. This 6-page publication describes two different approaches to building canvas-covered, skeletal, light-timber frames to meet this need.
