Abstract

Prefabricated housing has long been stigmatized by "cookie cutter" dwellings that offer limited spatial quality, but two recent Virginia Tech graduates have worked with faculty to design and build an innovative house for Habitat for Humanity that takes advantage of the prefabricated housing process while providing all the attributes of a custom-designed home.
