The $300 house

The mission?
Design a simple dwelling that can be constructed for under $300 which keeps a family safe, allows them to sleep at night, and gives them both a home and a sense of dignity.

The $300 house has been in the pipeline for some time now, and it's getting to a point where some real progress will be made.
