Updated Pics for shelters with different frames & wall panels  made on platform

Bare platform

 9 ft long 'H' shape concrete fence posts as base. NOTE: Reinforced concrete H beams are used as they are strong,  cheap , £10, fire resistant & heavy, so when base is attached to them , it will help stop structure being blown over, by weighting base

 Fence posts may need to be strengthened with purlins or drywall lining

CD Panel floor with 2 floor beams ( 3 needed for heavier weight loads on floor)
  
 CD Panel floor with 2 floor beams running  the other way, with edges resting in H recess of beam

An advantage of the H beam is that a 45-50mm wide paenl will fit in the groove


Option B. Frame made from 48mm scaffolding poles & metalclad beams


Close up of frame made from 48mm scaffolding poles & metalclad beams, a door edge strip is on outside to insualte metalclad steel from outside to prevent thermal bridge

Plan to make a low cost hardware kit to allow low income groups to build locally sourced (preferably reused) panels to make foldable shelters like Hexayurts, or for childrens play dens, animals pens or room dividers to reduce heating costs and noise
