MoMA is opening a new exhibit soon that will feature prefabricated housing.

Mr. Sass, an architecture professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has designed prefab housing for New Orleans. He proposes shipping a laser-cutting system with the pieces, which can be assembled with a rubber mallet, so homeowners can erect their own houses. “The house could be a fascinating combination of high-tech design and low-tech assembly,” Mr. Bergdoll said.

Unrelated…my father purchased a pellet stove for our house this weekend. It will be delivered and installed in October. Pellets are compacted sawdust; a bi-product of the sawmill industry. We’re hoping that the financial and ecological costs remain in our favor, despite the decline of the housing boom and the number of people converting to alternative fuels. We still aren’t sure about how to properly circulate air around the house. More on our pellet stove once it has been installed.
