16. Lustron Homes, 1949

A small white house.
These homes were constructed in 1949 in response to a need for G.I. housing after WWII. They were produced on an assembly line and made of porcelain enamel on steel (like the inside of an oven). The homes are practically maintenance free. Only 3,000 Lustron homes were manufactured in the U.S. before the government-backed loans to finance the company were called.
