LA Tech-Habitat Home
Building for a client with specific desires can be difficult, but designing for one with few programming preferences can often be harder. Such was the case for a team of nine fifth-year students at Louisiana Tech University who teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to create a modern home in the traditional town of Ruston, Louisiana.
The clients had two requirements: a porch in the back yard and a bedroom in the rear of the home. The rest was up to the students. The result was a LEED silver, 1,152-square-foot home built on a minimal budget with the help of local volunteers who donated their time and supplies to the team.
