On Sat. June 17th on Cablevision(Westchester NY) there was a rerun of a 1995 Bob Villa
show dealing with a couple(his name was Walter)who designed and then were about to
manufacture a Modular home Design(every plan was
base on 12ft sq.). Does anyone have any
information about their project?

The Arch House was built by Rensselar
Polytechnic Instittue under the direction
of Prof. Walter Kroner,Director of RPI's Center for Architectrual Research at
518 276 6463
I have already e-mailed him about the gereral
dispotion of the project
His answer was that the Practical aspect
is on hold because of lack of Funding
I did not get any indepth reply but for
me this was OK
wish you luck

Thank you for the info on the Arch House. I plan to build by this coming spring and am looking at several options aimed at homes for "real" people with "real" incomes, not the 5, 6 figure double incomes there always showing on the shows, my biggest complaint! If you want to look at interesting housing at affordable costs try Yurts, was great fun, and yes I'm considering one. Annie
