Shell of a wigwam lodge

Pictured is the framework for a wigwam lodge
designed for larger groups of people, not single family units.
In the past, these were mainly used for ceremonial purposes,
not living quarters.

But if we're pressed to come up with quick shelter for
large numbers of people, these lodges may be one solution.

They can be built with materials found on-site (we hope),
and they should provide a superior level of warmth.

In addition, we may consider adding earth-berming
for additional protection from the elements.

The shape of the structure should offer a degree of protection
from high winds, and the small amount of structural material
may save our necks in case of the
many anticipated earthquake aftershocks.
