After the devastating hurricanes in the Caribbean a friend, who had just returned from a few weeks at a Red Cross shelter in Houston, packed her bags for the Caribbean islands of Antigua and Barbuda to lend a hand. Before she left we discussed the use of containers as shelter, both temporary and permanent.

The islands have massive amounts of shipping containers coming into their ports. Since they are full when they arrive, they could be purchased and used for housing and business. They could contain all of the materials necessary to complete a structure.

I also brought another friend into the discussion. He is a builder who uses insulated concrete form (ICF) building technology. An ICF building can stand up to tornadoes and hurricanes with near-absolute protection from debris and winds as high as 250mph according to FEMA320 criteria. These structures are up to 8.5 times stronger than wood-frame structures against earthquakes.

Together, these two building systems could provide safe and reasonably priced housing for the future.
