Home Made Home: Patch Work

2019

plans for construction of community-built shelter

Patch Work is a system of reusablepanels that can quickly be assembled using minimal tools to create emergency shelter. The panels are of a manageable size and built using typical North American wood-frame construction techniques, so that individual community members with basic building skills can contribute one or more panels to a shelter.
