This has lead to a Design for Brick Wall Insulation & Cladding that Folds out to be Reused as a Temporary or Disaster Shelter
It consists of 5 sheets of 8' x 4' building material.
The 5 are ideally insulated, such as aluminium sided rigid foam , (like kingspan / celotex) . Otherwise Mgo fire board, waterproofed plywood / osb could also be used.
The 5th sheet must be stronger as it is used for the load bearing floor on which the occupant/s will sleep.
Alternatively, three 8 x 4' sheets can be used (instead of 5) and the side doors can be made of a waterproof fabric.
metal sided wall kinspan sandwich panel (with sheet of insulation and 3 or 6mm play on top to insulate occupant from steel sheet )
10mm thick mgo board (preferably with a thin frame & centre beam for support), plywood or osb could also be used.
Forgive my crude model in pics below:
The single sheet on the left of pic represents the wall to which the folded away structrure would be attached, permanently or temporarliy, depending on the design type .
Better view of roof
With side doors closed
With side doors open and folded back against roof (note: on roof side these doors will catch on the wall, so unless shelter is detached from wall & repalced, doors need another hinge / fold to avoid this)
Close up of folded back side doors
Clearer internal view showing side doors folded back on inside of roof
These can be cut into 3 & reused to form 3 corner braces (shape dependant on material used)
2 strips could be cut from these offcuts to form wall braces
By adding another 8 x4' sheet cut into 3 parts, a roof & 2 shelves can be inserted to cover a space for storage or sleeping area for a small child etc.
This also forms more secure anchoring to the wall in strong winds
nad reattached to cover storage area
View of roof overhang from other side
Note. the missing part in this design is how the joints / seams work & fold while remaining water / wind proof, yet able to be folded flat when shelter is flat packed to be stored against the wall
By adding another sheet cut into 3 parts it forms a roof & 2 shelfs for storage or child beds .
The shelves act as a brace to wall against strong winds
Variation 2 . Likely for internally housed bunk bed units attached to internal wall
