Mr. Nghia said the S House would fit many different environments, in part because its $1,500 frame can be purchased alone and clad in whatever local materials are available. A full package would cost between $2,000 and $3,000 and include steel-lattice walls and a corrugated roof.

The S House is suitable for remote areas because no single component weighs more than 110 pounds, he said, and its design could also be modified to suit local conditions — higher ceilings for hotter climates, for example, or bigger units for communities with larger families.

Miss. lawmaker: Leaders ‘should be lynched’ for taking down Confederate statues | TheHill

“If the, and I use this term extremely loosely, ‘leadership’ of Louisiana wishes to, in a Nazi-ish fashion, burn books or destroy historical monuments of OUR HISTORY, they should be LYNCHED! Let it be known, I will do all in my power to prevent this from happening in our State,” Oliver wrote in a Saturday Facebook post.
