We Own A Lustron House!

Before restoration 2019

Untitled.png

Lustron Houses are all metal houses made in Whitehall, Ohio following World War II. This innovative home design used porcelain coated surplus steel to create an affordable home to meet the post-war housing shortage. The house came in three model and four colors to choose from. It came disassembled on a truck in 3,300 pieces with a 1,000 page instruction manual. Usually, they took about 2 weeks to put together. Unfortunately, the company did not last long. Only about 2,500 were produced nationwide. Our model is number 2526 and is the last of three Lustrons built in Knox County. There are only about 1,000 left across the country today. We are nearing completion of the restoration of this home at 6 West Lamartine, Mount Vernon. It will be available for short term rental by mid-spring 2022.
