I would go back to the old fashion days of building small round houses with loose soil with soft-wooden-lattice-like style between the walls and thatched roof. They are traditional and they are extremely safe. Tin roof is no good, during tornadoes or earthquakes tin can cut people up and therefore dangerous.

The traditional soil and thatched houses are cheap to make too. They have nicely housed our ancestors for decades until we decided to go modern, Miami style.
