Designs refined for miniature homes for homeless residents

Community Compassion Outreach to unveil new ideas Saturday
Fort Lewis College engineering students tested and helped redesign housing that could be built for homeless residents. Ian Begay, left, and Andre Bos load 42-kilogram sacks of cement on a wind-load testing apparatus. The apparatus applies a uniform horizontal force to the opposite wall, simulating an 80 mph wind gust. Students also analyzed alternative housing models.
