In the past, Japanese temporary housing was supposed to be prefabricated light-weight steel building because of the production speed and amount in emergency. However, since the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011, timber temporary housings have been provided. For 2017 Northern Kyushu Heavy Rain, Fukuoka prefecture constructed 107 timber temporary housings in Asakura city and Toho village. In three of four sites, timber community houses were also built. Our laboratory at Kyushu University cooperated with Fukuoka prefecture to design these community houses. We describe these details of the design and the process of construction in this report.
