The first group of homes will utilize Rural Studio’s Sylvia’s 2/2 prototypes. These long, narrow houses are well-suited for many of the parcels in Jean Lafitte. The homes are elevated above the base flood elevation, creating a secondary social space at ground level. To shorten construction time, NOLAHFH has been prefabricating wall panels for upcoming projects in a warehouse provided by the town.
