Here is a radio interview with David Gutnick concerning various Haitian building solutions he is finding as he tours rebuilding sites in the country. He discusses everything from cement block construction to rice straw bales, to homes built with rubble and wire.
There is even a guy who says he needs to build a home so that he can entice someone to marry him!
There are many potential solutions to the Haitian housing crisis. It is good to hear that many groups and individuals are moving forward with creativity and determination.
We can only hope that the solutions yield some sustainable results and that projects are all built upon a strong foundation. What is your idea of the right home for a Haitian family?
