What would happen if you had already lost a home to a natural disaster, or if you needed to relocate quickly to a piece of land for a period of time, and that land was shelterless ? An Alaskan company has an answer. Built to withstand an 8.5 earthquake and Class 4 hurricanes, this shelter comes with component parts stacked like chips in a bag of Pringles. The company says that two inexperienced people can carry the package which weighs about 55 lbs. to an area of their choice in a pick up truck and assemble it themselves in a period of two hours using a ladder, a screwdriver and a small pocket wrench. The structure can also be disassembled and assembled elsewhere, and is felt to be able to last 15 to 20 years. The beginning packages, depending upon size, range from $7,000 US-$12,000 US.

Note from Jane:
I have absolutely no personal financial interest in Intershelter whatsoever. I simply believe this is an intriguing idea at what appears to be an excellent price. As with any product or offer, profiled here or otherwise, please do all of your due diligence, not only in ensuring whether these products will meet your needs, but also as to zoning laws and whether your subdivision, town, township, county or region will permit such structures, and under what circumstances.
