  • Description

    Instant housing has been accomplished by a company trying to introduce the so-called "Plydom" dwelling in Canada. The pre-fabricated, plastic house was erected in about half an hour during a demonstration in toronto:
    The house opens from a compact, easily-portable package into a room with a floor space of fifteen by twenty feet. One or two man can perform the task. The promoters say the "Plydom" is especially useful in disaster relief where large numbers of homes have to be transported and erected quickly. They are also recommending the structure for temporary housing in under-developed countries.

    The whole package weighs less than two-hundred- and fifty pounds -- but the promoters claims the house is extremely strong. A whole camp of "Plydoms" inhabited by migratory workers in California is said to have withstood a hurricane last year.
