Concrete canvas

Great idea. Only problem is packing it in to your campsite.

Considering the great British weather... What happens when it gets wet before you're ready to deploy it?...

Is there a drawback here? OK, here we have quick and fast emergency shelters, which with heat and light, could withstand quite harsh waether for a long time. But what about the dismantling when the emergency is over. Are you ging to need an army of workmen with pneumatic drills and a convoy of heavy lorries?
