SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - The Life Cube shelter company hosted an open house Thursday at its new location at 6200 Hollister Avenue, near the Santa Barbara Airport.
Michael Conner, founder of Life Cube, considers this a perfect site, easy access to transport these emergency shelters, wherever needed.
The self-contained, insulated structure fits into two duffel bags and deploys within minutes. They're built to be moved and assembled -- without tools -- by just two people.
“Now we have great quality at reasonable prices and units that hold air for months at a time," said Conner.
The rugged, instant shelters come with storage for provisions and a raised floor.
“Some of the products come equipped with solar panels, they float so they can be set up very, very quickly," said Bob Vitamante, Strategic Business Advisor for Life Cube.
Conner has worked on shelters for 20 years and tells your NewsChannel team that while he spent most of that time focusing on military shelters, he's excited to get back to his true love: recreation.
