About the domes
At the center of The Shelter’s housing assistance program is a revolutionary approach to cost-efficient temporary structures, made possible through the use of igloo-like portable shelters from Alaska-based company, Intershelter™.Learn More
The Intershelter™ portable shelter is made from high-tech aerospace composite material, is built to sustain hurricane strength winds and earthquakes, and is insulated to stay warm in extreme arctic sub-zero degree weather or cool in hot desert climates. A single structure’s pieces can fit in the back of a pick up truck, and can be assembled in a few hours by just three people.
A single dome structure costs about $10,000 and can house a family of five people. Additional structures can be attached to create multi-unit dwellings, and individual domes can be reconfigured into kitchens, bathrooms, and living spaces.
