Building The Prototype of Self Isolation Tent For Homes

March 31st, 2020

Hey everyone,

I hope you are well and keeping safe.

Here are few updates you should know for today…

I ended the day yesterday on relatively vague note. I posted picture of the possible design and some pipes.

I started today by going to home depot and other construction stores around my area to source some more pipes that I needed. Well, a small run to the store take a very long time now. Stores here are told to limit the number of people coming into the stores. See the picture attached. Had to wait in line for a bit to enter.

However, was able to source some pipes and start building.

See the pictures attached of the initial product. Know that this is by no means the final design. However, it should give you some good idea of how it could look. There are still a lot of adjustments needed.

Remember: my goal is to make something quick, that’s affordable, easy to assemble and fits a room. If you have suggestion, please feel free to comment.

Here are some specs:

Length – 6’3″
Width – 4′ 2″
Height- 5’9″
Material – PEX Pipes

Also, I have been in touch with few doctors and nurses, they made it very clear that a negative pressure tent may not be necessary since its not an airborne virus. But, they all agree that this tent could be useful, but it needs to have ventilation.

Stay tuned for more updates..
