Title:A Demonstration of New Techniques for Low-Cost Small House Construction
Author(s):Harrell, Raymon H.; Lendrum, James T.
Abstract:This study was undertaken as a field proof or demonstration of those construction techniques, design features, and structural details which have been proven through research to materially-reduce the cost or increase the quality of small house construction. As part of the study, a program was written, and a low-cost house, of approximately 1,000 sq ft of floor area (30' x 34') was designed. Variations in the placing of the house on the lot for different orientations were studied, and a site plan was made for a small development showing how these variations could be used by a builder to produce an interesting street scene.
