Millions of people live in tents, some in disaster areas, and others in countries less fortunate, most don't have a choice. Disaster relief is a multi-billion dollar industry. After a 2 hour setup the HITH unit is ready for a Cat. 5 hurricane. Made from aluminum, stainless steel and plastic, the 10'x20' structure will last 40 to 50 years. This unit is the only portable or temporary housing that has a Cat. rating other than a cargo container, which is so heavy transportation to disaster areas is impossible. All other competitors are in the HITH Business Plan. The unit can be enlarged to 20'x20' or bigger to replace FEMA trailers. Average cost for a 270 sq. ft. trailer, $27,000, after 1 year average worth is $6,500. HITH unit 400 sq. ft. cost $24,000 with full amenities, after 1 year the average worth $22,500. After use trailers are structurally unsound and go to auction. HITH gets disassembled and stored, waiting for the next disaster. There could have been 30,000 of these units for Hurricane Sandy and 15,000 in Oklahoma. Also the thousands of people in tents in Haiti. Everyone also has their own ideas for the units, from ice shanties to permanent houses in the Bahamas. Help me show the world our Humanity.
