The RSK method of roof construction can be delivered over the phone in an emergency.

 

There are 2 reasons this can be achieved effectively.

1. The RSK concept of  4 roof poles overlapping in turn can be taught in only a few minutes by using simple diagrams.

2. From this point onwards all of the construction steps use traditional methods that are already familiar to the local 

community.

This combination of introducing a new concept into existing traditional methods of shelter construction works well in practice. We have found that a 15 minute demonstration of the roof frame is enough to get families building their own shelters with considerable efficiency.

In addition we also supply a single page check list for families to refer to as their shelter is being built.
