RoEm, or the Reusable Home, is a temporary shelter serving to shield people from natural disasters and homelessness. We are building temporary shelters around the world in Pakistan, the United States, and Korea. We are also developing a blueprint to great temporary, Do-it-Yourself, housing shelters that can be made from the comfort of your own home and shared worldwide.
Through RoEm, we are killing two birds with one stone. By creating temporary housing pods or as we like to call it, the reusable home, we are reducing our carbon footprint by using common items people tend to throw out like plastic water bottles, egg cartons, old clothes, torn up books, and etc. and offering a solution to the lack of adequate housing around the United States, Pakistan, and Korea.
We have created three of these temporary housing shelters on the Hindukush Mountain, 17 kilometers from Tajikistan and 70 kilometers from Gilgit. Located in Up North Pakistan, these shelters are well insulated, fireproof, and earthquake resistant. They are designed for excessive snow loading and each took approximately 75 days to complete.
These shelters were made to shield the Gilgiti people from bad weather and storms that Pakistan is not prepared to deal with due to it's warmer climate in the southern regions.
