JUDY James was voted to have built the best structure at the Shoalhaven Sleep Out event, with her cardboard box home.
“I had no problems whatsoever with the wind,” the Bomaderry resident said.
“It even survived a couple of other structures hitting the roof at one stage.”
It included a retractable sun bed, a chimney, a workable window and even a torch holder.
“This was a great event, it had a really good vibe about it and hopefully the community gets right behind it,” she said.
Commander of the Fleet Air Arm, Commodore Vince Di Pietro flew the navy flag, along with a number of colleagues, with his structure also withstanding the strong winds.
