Toronto carpenter building insulated, mobile shelters for homeless people this winter

The whole thing costs about $1,000 in new material and takes Khaleel Seivwright eight hours to construct, though he’s been happily giving them away for free since he started building them last month.

“It just seemed like something I could do that would be useful because there’s so many people staying in tents,” said Seivwright, 28, a carpenter from Scarborough.

“I’ve never seen so many people staying outside in parks, and this is something I could do to make sure people staying outside in the winter could survive.”
