Description

In Kankakee, the current housing cost index is $120 to $135 per square foot for new house construction, which is not affordable for the low-income families. However, Kankakee has several vacant and foreclosed lots throughout the city, affecting the growth and appearance of the city. The project sponsor, Carlile Architects, has tasked this team to design small, modular, cost effective, and aesthetically-pleasing houses to spark growth in Kankakee. The solution to this problem, and the main goal of the Modular House Senior Design Project, is to design individual room boxes that will be connectable to other rooms and aesthetically pleasing, while also being cost effective and efficiently manufactured.
