If last week's flooding made us realize anything it's that nothing in life should be taken for granted, including a roof over our heads and a dry place to sleep. While a mobile homeless shelter might not be our first (or second, or third…) choice for small space living, this well-designed option by Paul Elkins might not be half bad if life took a turn for the worse.

The shelter is lightweight, water tight and able to collect rainwater, and includes an area for displaying and selling handmade wares. The tiny space includes a variety of clever storage solutions, so we're not surprised that Fast Company called it "kind of comfortable looking" — perhaps that doesn't seem like the highest praise, but we can't imagine anything more difficult than finding comfort in a situation that would normally be unlivable.
