How We Help
Metal Home Kits For Relief Homes
One of the missions of Quicken Steel has become the provision of Metal Home Kits for people living in crisis situations. Beginning in 2006, our partners Gulf Coast Supply developed the Relief Home as a low-cost solution for housing needs in places like Guatemala and Haiti. Now Quicken has taken over the efforts and carried on with the mission.
Metal Home Kits are built to be functional for the long haul and are in many cases a more structurally sound solution than an evacuee’s previous dwelling. Our low-cost Relief Homes and Housing Shelters can provide a needy family protection that they so desperately need.
Kits can be completely assembled at the home site, or in sections at a designated staging area. Sectional transport is simple, and allows for quick assembly at the project site. Using a staging site often proves to be the most time efficient method for multi-unit assembly of the relief home kits. Our comprehensive metal home kit installation and detail guides are provided with every order for your added convenience and ease of assembly. Call or chat with one of our Relief Home Specialists today to learn more about these incredible tiny home safe havens!
Each Housing Shelter is 18’ x 15’ with a 20 gauge steel infrastructure wrapped with our 29 gauge steel roofing and wall panels. Every shelter is designed to withstand high winds, and its steel construction provides stellar resilience against impending earthquakes.
All Relief Home Kits include the following elements:
- 20ga. Galvanized Metal Framing
- 29ga. Painted Metal Walls and Galvalume
- Metal Roofing Panels
- Radiant Foil Insulation for heat reflective benefits
- Gutters for Rainwater Collection from the Metal Roof System
- Living quarters with (2) rooms
- Skylights (2)
- Windows (2)
- Door (1)
- Multipurpose Crating Materials for bunk-beds, table and shelving
*Optional* 4’x18’ porch (call for pricing)
Installation of our Relief Home Kits is easy
They can be erected on packed dirt, concrete, pavers and asphalt conditions, and can be completed for use before sun down. In fact, a crew with limited construction experience can usually install several relief home kits per day.
Crating that can be made into beds
In addition to amazing strength and low maintenance properties, the Relief Homes from Quicken Steel are also economically packed for maximum crating, shipping and even living purposes.
Each Relief Home Kit is shipped in two protective crates which double as premium material for assembly of bunk-beds, tables and shelving! A standard container load can be manufactured with relatively short notice and can include up to (30) complete Relief Home Kits ready for immediate assembly. Each Relief Home comes in (2) 21”x21”x118” crates, and are packed into standard 40’ shipping containers.
Quicken Steel can also design and manufacture to your specific needs. Contact us to discuss your particular project.
