Prefab House based on the Arcon design, some of these buildings can still be seen today.
Prefabs - The solution to a housing crisis at the end of the war was to plan and create 500,000 temporary new homes, although only 156,623 were actually produced (between 1945 and March 1949).
All were to have two bedrooms, the floor area was to be 635 square feet, and to allow transportation from the factory, each component part could be no bigger than 71⁄2 feet wide. The most important stipulation was that they all had to make use of the government-approved "heart-unit". A back-to-back kitchen, bathroom, fire place with back boiler, airing cupboard and toilet. The design of the unit kept plumbing to a minimum.
