  1. In general a noble idea, however have look how the product corresponds with the surrounding environment. Do you think a classic modern, western shoe box fits the local culture? Therefore how likely is it to be accepted by the locals…?
    Also, have closer look at the roof…

  2. Retest, expand & test in Haiti alone, for markets.
    Make able to connect IE expand size.
    & portable for air, ground, sea transit use worldwide.
    Test in Haiti.

  3. They tried to build house here (N.A) out of plastic for the poor communities.
    However, the idea was shut down due to the toxic chemical which could be released during a fire.

    I think the idea is very good if they could make it fire proof.
