You beat me to it!

I thought it was a mobile home based first on the shape and size, but wasn't certain. Instead of trying to track down the original source of the picture, I should have looked more critically at the picture itself.

Your use of the word "structures" pointed me in the right direction. If you look at the roofing trusses that are exposed to plain sight, you'll see that they're much smaller and flimsier than those used in houses.
