My earliest memories of home in East Central Texas was of a small wooded lot adjacent a forest along the highway between two forgotten towns. The home was parked behind a blue corrugated box that concealed one of the most popular roadhouses in Lee County. My parents were the perprietors of "Rocky Top Tavern." And we four kids lived in the mobile home out back. It wasn't luxury, but it was Home.
Many things have changed in the world since then. The blue shack is still there, now full of junk and spider webs. The old mobile home is long gone. Yet, behold the modern 'mobile' home... The Dwell Home.
I only wish that my family had been so lucky. Prefabricated homes have evolved significantly since 1975. So when the President proposes what Hugh Hewitt calls a "trailer park nightmare", to house Hurricane refugees in ' mobile home' villages, perhaps there is opportunity in the misfortunes of circumstance. Applying modern Prefab technology to the current problem of emergency housing combined with a little design innovation and entreprenuerial initiative, could yield a more beneficial solution for everyone involved.
