The Kit & Kaboodle on Kit Homes

The early part of the 20th century saw an American phenomenon in housing choices made possible by a confluence of events. The automobile assembly line process in manufacturing, for example, was extended to home-building. Never before in history was there such a choice in housing for the average person. From planned communities to mail-order houses, families could find a way to achieve the American dream. Ron Campbell of Oakland County Economic Development and Community Affairs tells the fascinating story about the creation of these houses and their ongoing legacy.
