I was reading a bit of Suburban Nation, and they recommended that cities allow developers to sell habitable but "unfinished" housing units (for the risk-oblivious college students).

I'd totally love apartments and/or condos to be sold more like office space. Here's the important walls don't touch them. Otherwise, feel free to drag conduit around from here and install your own partitioning walls.

Factory Housing

I was reading an article last year (I think Scientific American) about a new kind of factory-built housing (manufactured housing) that was extremely tailored to the buyers wishes. Every wall, every floor board, every electrical conduit was moveable and connectable to everything else, and could be moved around after installatin by the buyer as well. It looked pretty neat.

Follow-up. I think this is the company I had read about, though I am not positive:

Interesting construction system.


Though their website is quite annoying.
