A team of architecture students designed a seemingly impossible home.
After more than a decade of designing, editing, and reworking, the students at Rural Studio — Auburn University ‘s architectural-design program — built two cottages in 2016 with raw materials that cost just $A18,000 each. (The team calls them the “20K Homes.”)
The goal was to create a model for building homes that are both beautiful and affordable.
In late summer 2017, Rural Studio will begin planning two more homes with materials that cost even less than $A18,000. The students expects to start construction in early 2018.
Take a look inside the first two homes.
