    What is the approximate cost of these shelters? They would make great little get-away cabins in rural areas.

    The product still has to be built and shipped. In a tropical environment, this design would deteriorate quickly.
    I personally favor Reactive Powder Concrete (self compacting, non-porous, ultra high strength, good tensile qualities and can be made luminescent) Quonset huts with tubing cast into the floors and walls for; water heating and cooling, high pressure forced air heating and cooling, phone, electric, cable, etc. Solar cooking, water heating and lighting is an absolute necessity. Make them so clay can be placed on top with a good soil on top for farming. Basically, 5 cubic meters of concrete for a 16 sq meter with 8 square meters shaded or a 20 sq meter home with 4 sq meters shaded, 2 front and 2 in the back.
