About the cover: Between 1908 and 1940, it was possible to purchase a home from the Sears catalog. To many at the time, this seemed both odd and innovative. But while the process may have been different, the affordable homes themselves proved to be familiar and long lasting. In fact, many are still standing and happily occupied. Catalog homes (not to mention catalogs themselves) may be a thing of the past, but a new frontier in affordable housing beckons. In this issue of VTC you’ll learn more about how the affordable homes of the future will be put together employing new techniques such as CrossMod construction and 3D printing (like the home on the cover).
