The Picket Fence Concept Home: Livability, Constructability, Sustainability

LinkedIn Live

The America At Home Study has gone modular! The Picket Fence concept home, a three-story rental townhome with an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), was inspired by wave three of the study. It was designed to advance the livability and attainability of urban infill townhomes and provide renters with the same opportunity to enjoy private outdoor spaces more typical of for-sale homes, metaphorically "a picket fence." It also aims to demonstrate a higher level of livability, constructability, and sustainability than seen in other new construction homes with three big goals in mind: reducing carbon emissions by 70%, generating 90% less waste, and delivering a healthier living environment.
