Great concept design! have you made any?

I worked on a half-scale version of the disaster relief tent and then halted the production when I got offered a job in Pennsylvania. I do also need to make a prototype of the surgical pack. Thanks for asking.

Great stuff you should pitch it to the Red Cross!

I need to do that. Maybe Disaster relief or Samaritan's purse as well. I really need to finish building the half-scale.

I sent in a design for a portable shelter such as this, similar idea, but different design. How would you treat the inside? Is it just for sleeping or is it a living space? I got my nerve up and sent mine to the FEMA president lol I never heard back from him

The floor of the inside iscovered with burlap and the outside is natural wax. The inside is not treated with anything. Deborah since I have missed both of your comments until now, my email is radarbell@hotmail.com. you can message me with any further questions there. I am currently working for Joy mining in Virginia so my schedule keeps me pretty busy. Than you for your inquiry. So you say you designed a similar tent?
