So why can't FEMA buy a couple thousand of these units to have ready for the next flood, tsunami, hurricane, F5 tornado, earthquake, forest fire, etc.?

Now this make sense.

Vincent wolf - Because they are too expensive. If we are going to buy & store 1000 small temp homes. Then they should be done out of shipping containers made into a cheap home, that could be done for far less.

Surely a downsized,bare bones,cheap version could be made for disaster,refugee,etc. In the future most all building construction will be prefab made in a factory with quick installation.

Y'know, this type of thing would be perfect for insurance companies to offer in addition to lowered premiums. If you live in a hurricane, tornado, flood, or other hazard area, the insurance company could clear your lot and have one of these up and running in a week (rather than at least a year!) saving hundreds of thousands of dollars. Here's the insurance discount, here are the pros and cons, and here is the final replacement house, build with your preferred mods. I'll bet at least 33% of people would do it. // Waaaaay too expensive for FEMA, but perfect for progressive cities to house their homeless. Once the city folks see how stylin' it is to live in one of these nicely insulated A-frames, they'll all be going suburban!

Fantastic idea', but insulation is not good enough in a Scandinavian climate.

As designed, it requires a foundation, plumbing and electrical connections

I like how quickly these are to setup and they look really nice.

Very cool but extremely expensive for what you're getting. It'd also be a cool DIY project to build a cabin or hunting lodge. The design looks simple enough...
