Cabin Envy Hawaii prototype

We were driving past the University of Hawaii campus at Manoa on our way back to our holiday digs and we saw this structure being built, so the next day we made a point of parking and taking a look. It’s a project that is taking the wood of an invasive tree which is being cut down, the Albizia [al bee zee a] and turning this wood into a new cabin prototype. As I said in my last post Hawaii has a large homeless population and by using this material for these structures this project is trying to tackle Hawaii’s affordable home problem.
