The Re_home will arrive on campus this Tuesday, May 17. The same construction site will be used for the Re_home as was used for Team Illinois’ 2009 Gable Home. The site is just southeast of the south quad on the Urbana campus.
Construction began at Homeway Homes, a modular home manufacturer in Peoria, IL, where the shell of the home was completed. On Tuesday morning, the home will be shipped to the construction site where a group of 20 students will finish construction in preparation for the Solar Decathlon competition this September. Students will install insulation panels, siding, interior finishes, and the PV array in the coming months. Check back soon for updated pictures of the home’s arrival and construction progress!
