Wow! That is really incredible! It looks like you tried to post a photo, and it didn’t work ( got an [x] ) but the link worked.

That’s really cool but at $25k I’ll pass.

That is amazing Joe. Would even be a great idea for storage sheds.

Amazing, I wonder if it would be strong enough to be moved around if needed.

I think it would work great as stated, in areas where aid was required. If the price is $25K or even close a shed would cost a fraction of that to construct with traditional methods.

Well, yes a shed would be cheaper, but we are looking at CONCRETE here ! The use for emergency buildings is fantastic ! AND build a damned shed fit for human emergency habitation or a hospital ward ? Without a foundation and the heat properties ? This is marvelous ! A mash unit in 30 minutes ! Shelters for immigrants from war zones !

Great idea but I would think keep a spare blower around if that died you’d have a real mess on your hands me thinks.

One other thing, notice the floor is very wrinkled, there would be no way to fix that and you’d have to build a new floor on top of it.
