DESIGNhabitat Affordable Home Design
The Alabama Association of Habitat Affiliates teamed up with Design Alabama and the Auburn Architecture School to develop a set of designs for Habitat houses. DESIGNhabitat (http://cadc.frontpage.auburn.edu/content/habitat/) grew from this partnership as Auburn students studied Alabama vernacular architecture to come up with designs that were appropriate for infill in older neighborhoods, cost effective and energy efficient. They developed a portfolio of four designs for a range of housing sizes. These attractive homes can be built for about the same cost as a typical Habitat house and yet have significant life cycle and monthly cost savings.
