Houses of Steel

These prefab steel made homes are still standing tall.

Houses of Steel

Prefab homes are catching on now as a new normal building technique , but the trend was also popular in the '40s with Lustron houses , steel prefab homes for returning WWII veterans. The homes are completely made of porcelain-coated stainless steel , can be cleaned with a power hose , don’t require paint , won’t be damaged by termites , and are immune to decay , rust , and rodents , says realtor Claudine Zap.
The concept began as a quick way to assemble homes for returning war veterans in the mid-1940s. An Ohio factory mass-produced 3 ,000 parts per home using 12 tons of steel , including the bathtub , cabinets , and vanities , which were then loaded onto a truck and assembled on-site in less than a week. The company closed in 1950 after producing only 2 ,500 homes. But a few of these homes still stand today and are even on the market.
These homes look to be in great shape with their stainless-steel walls , original flooring , and fixtures. This is great , because renovations are  prohibitive. Another challenge? Hanging wall art. Unless you have really strong magnets.
