Default Have some land? Put up a shelter

Level the area, layout the shelter, "blow" it up, then just add water

I think that they probably lasts much longer that ten years, but they had to pro-rate it to ten. Each shelter is going to be set up in a different climate creating a different life expectancy of the shelter.

I don't think that they are meant to be a living shelter, only meant as a temporary shelter or storage. would be great to use in haiti or japan where a quick shelter could be used very efficiently.
