An Arial Home (pictured above) is constructed of highly insulated steel panels that fit together like Lego's. The home is pre-fabricated in a nearby Arial Home factory so that no on-site sawing or cutting is required. A team of 12 volunteers can typically assemble an Arial Home in one day.
Arial Homes
Listen to the:
Tom and Jane Pirelli build homes for the poor -- homes made of steel with indoor plumbing and a life expectancy of 50-years, not just ten-years for the standard wooden structures built by other charities. The Arial Home Initiative builds homes with highly insulated steel panels that fit together like Lego’s. The home is pre-fabricated in a nearby factory so no on-site sawing or cutting is required. A team of 12 volunteers can typically assemble an Arial Home in one day. The Pirellis hope to someday have 250 factories around the world building durable, prefabricated homes for the poor. The Pirellis discuss their home building program with host Peggy Wehmeyer.
