Re: Repurpose concrete tubes for housing

Interesting, and I'm sure a great idea for some people.

 

I couldn't do the narrow floors and curved in walls for very long periods of time.

Re: Repurpose concrete tubes for housing

If anyone cared to read the article, they would see that these “apartments” are the answer to areas where there is not enough housing,or affordable housing.  The cost is $15,000 each and they are inexpensive for utilities and upkeep.

 

They  can build a whole series of them in a small space where housing is desperately needed.

 

This  is so much better than having people living in the streets in cardboard boxes or under bridges.  I think the idea is a good one and will help many people.

I think it is brilliant.
