A Home


FOR EMERGENCIES AND THE HOMELESS

Built like a house, stacks flat to go anywhere, and latches together in minutes.

A Destination

The Habitat Transitional Shelters™ offer comfort when and where it is needed.  It is built with metal framing, locking doors, operable windows, and standard residential insulation.  The Habitat™ is a safe refuge. Pricing is targeted at $3,000 to $5,000 once in production.

The San Francisco Bay Area has the opportunity to lead the country in developing safe and easy-to-assemble interim shelter to address the growing humanitarian and public health crisis of encampments. If a shelter product like Habitat could be inexpensively produced and be made code compliant, we’d finally have an essential piece of the puzzle solved
