Secure Insulated Camper Shelter


Zoning regulations and building codes make safe minimal housing unaffordable to minimum wage, volunteer, and unemployed workers. This Romani vardo inspired structure could be one solution.

Occupy Eugene made apparent the need for secure, dry, warm shelter, in a community setting. When the City of Eugene broke up occupy and made more camping permits available for cars and campers. I decided to design and build an insulated "bicycle camper" for those who cannot afford a car or camper. The photos show a prototype. The structure could be built from a wide range of materials. Just as the Oregon Trail pioneers were allowed their own place for a new start we should allow the homeless their own place for a new start.

In 1999 the Oregon House passed a bill to permitting this type of housing to assist the homeless.

Setting aside locations for this type of structure will minimize dispersed waste, allow health care and social workers easier access to the needy. Such camps can also foster self governance.
