    This is a reader share.

    No description found but it’s newly added to market so maybe it’ll come later. 🙂

    Cool! I wouldn’t want to live in one, but I love the history.

    Can you take it back apart, move it and re-assembly. I’m just asking because I have a wrench, screw driver and a dry erase marker.

    wouldn’t there be terrible echos inside a house with ceramic coated walls? thanks Julie for the article link. Never heard of these or seen one that I know of.

    It looks in a pretty good shape! This housing concept is fascinating, from the construction type to the materials used, etc…

    I feel so protective of these little babies. They are so of their time and will never come again. I think I could live in one of these. However they look like they’d be so much more fun to live in when you’re younger. I nice little love nest for newlyweds.

      I agree. I could see a young hipster couple in one of these, probably driving a 1959 Eldorado or something similar.

      The concept of Lustrons fascinate me. We have a different mentality now, and that isn’t exactly a good thing.

    Here’s the 1st of three videos a lady did about Lustron homes in my hometown of Macomb, Illinois.

    I have to wonder what the acoustics are like inside Lustron homes. Carpets & drapes really needed, I would think…

    Were Lustron homes a Midwestern thing? There are have a number of these here in Sioux City Iowa.

      No, not at all! According to Wikipedia, they went up in 36 states (including Alaska) and even in a few locations in Venezuela where oil workers needed housing. The largest single group in one location was in Quantico, Virginia, where 60 of them were built in the same neighborhood – though sadly they’ve all been torn down in recent years in favor of larger housing. 🙁

    There used to be several around the St Louis area and I went to see one just for fun. I really liked it and was glad I went.
    This is a very interesting example of fast housing required and put up quickly.

    there were / are a few of them around in the Chicago land area…As I understood it , the only real drawback as expansion of existing footprint. How do you add an addition and of what exterior material that makes sense?
