How to Survive Homelessness with Style

Niki Raapana is an experimental builder and year round Gertee dweller in Alaska. A Gertee is very similar to a yurt, but it's made out of scraps, recycled, and gently used materials. These can be used for emergency shelters or permanent dwellings.

 "Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need." Philippians 4:11-12
