Originally displayed at International Builders Show, Orlando; now at Cottage Square in Ocean Springs, Mississippi

This is the little yellow cottage that was built for the International Builders’ Show in Orlando in January 2006. It was the first time the general public was able to see what the Katrina Cottage designers and promoters had been talking about. It stole the show, with thousands of visitors, and later went on to win the People’s Choice award at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Awards. Many accolades followed, as this cottage became the first public face of the Katrina Cottages initiative.
