Designed by Steve Mouzon

This is the USA Weekend Katrina Cottage, on temporary display in a parking lot near Washington DC to demonstrate that Katrina Cottages can address America’s affordable housing problem all over the country, not just on the Gulf Coast. This is the first modular Katrina Cottage ever to be produced by a housing manufacturer, rounding out all five of the delivery methods in which Katrina Cottages were originally designated to be produced. This cottage won a Charter Award from the Congress for the New Urbanism. It is also the first Kernel Cottage, designed to expand easily. It was also a precursor to the SmartDwellings.
