20K...




I recently received an email from a self-described itinerant architect named Will Holman. Will's been working with Rural Studio in Alabama, helping to design and build the ninth version of the 20K house (top photo). Here's how the project works:
    The 20k house project seeks to address the pressing need for decent and affordable housing in Hale County. The aim is to produce a model home that can be reproduced on a large scale, becoming a viable alternative to the trailer in this area. The challenge is to build a house for $20, 000 that can be bought in conjunction with the "502 Direct Loan".
Awesome, right? Back to Will. He helps support himself by building furniture and making bowls from recycled signs. All also awesome. They're for sale in his shop and you can read more about Rural Studio here. Three cheers for good deeds.
