Part 5 of a 6 part series
My take on accessories, water, power, solar, heating etc. is that they are best addressed according to local needs, customs and availability. Why pre-install a 110 volt power system if the local power is 220 volts? A simple power strip will do the trick. Plumbing? If you source locally, spares are available locally.
Shelter In A Day is a simple, secure envelope, a blank canvas if you will. It’s simplified to bare necessities because it is not possible to be all things to all people and keep costs low, a basic, but extremely important feature. The walls are single skin, one inch thick wood, making it easy to add pipes, wires or anything else, locally. Bathroom? There are many pre-fab, drop-in water related products available. We work closely with a company who has a full line of life-support products available, everything from generators to water purification, grey water systems to mobile kitchens. So if you need anything included, just ask.
Decide within the next 30 days and we’ll throw in our special, screw-in, tie-down system at no extra cost. For a limited time, orders of 16 or more qualify you to also receive Terrapeg furniture at no extra cost. This includes up to five individual Terrapeg furniture pieces per house, a 1,000 US value.
If you are not satisfied, just return within 2 years of shipping date for a full refund of your entire purchase price. Production is limited. Lock in your place, risk free, on our production schedule and your 30 days for the tie-down system or free furniture offer. You can change your mind at anytime during the 30 days.
You can help in many ways, and here’s how.
- Make sure you’re signed up to receive updates about Terrapeg and Shelter In A Day.
- Do you know someone in the aid world, business world or the press who should know about this outstanding new technology? Forward this and ask them to read it through.
- Does your company, organization or congregation engage in health initiatives, missions, displaced populations relief or developing world education projects? Contact us and let’s explore how we can work together to make best use of limited resources for your projects.

- Are you or your organization interested in helping the less fortunate but have concerns that your donations will be diverted? Work with us and we’ll show you how Shelter In A Day technology effectively overcomes this universal concern.
- Do you want to give to rebuild Haiti but not sure how to get started? We have projects under way in Haiti. We are gathering resources to rebuild the school in Jeremie, the one across the bridgeless river. We need 50k to complete. You can give through the non-profit Community Mission for HOPE website. Be sure to mention Jeremie so they know your intentions and they will send you a tax deductable receipt.
- Does your group want to donate a house but not sure who to give it to? We’ll help.

READERS: What are your thoughts?
Winner of 2013 Aid and International Development Forum (AIDF) "Most Innovative Product Award." Shelter In A Day is the brainchild of eco-friendly, furniture designer Frank Schooley. Shelter's disaster recovery housing provides safe and secure, simple to construct, green homes for those displaced by natural disasters, such as hurricanes, earthquakes or floods.
The disaster shelters are a solidly constructed, termite, rust and rot resistant house, with lockable doors and windows. Homes are crafted from waterproof, recycled wood fiber material and can be easily erected anywhere, in one day.
