AbstractThe house reconstruction after Java Earthquake 2006, is an example of how more than 180,000 units house were constructed within less than a year. Disaster event—such earthquake—is not only ruining “a house” but also “a life” of many families. They lost their house, belonging, and even beloved family. They suffered shortage of supports to revive their owned family life. In the same time, support from others, donors, and government were definitely limited. A strategy to cope with the issue should be addressed to speed up a house reconstruction for family life revitalization within a lack of resources. A core house is one of concepts or models using a small and simple replicable construction which easily adaptable by community. This small earthquake resistance house is designed to have economic construction cost so that this approach could maximize the number of family impacted. The core house is expected to be expanded by families through process of construction support sharing or a subsidized approach among government, donors, and family owned sources.
