Doctor is Building Modular Homes for Pittsburgh

A pediatrician at Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with a passion for design and sustainable housing has begun the process of bringing in the first solar-powered modular homes to the city. Dr. Orooj Fasiuddin’s urbanHAUS will site the first home on a lot in the Morningside neighborhood. A two bedroom modular home with 945 square feet will rent for $1,450/mth plus utilities; the second modular home will be a 670 square foot, one-bedroom unit that will rent for $800 utilities included. Both will have a full bath, kitchen and living/diningroom, according to Ecocraft of Bridgeville, PA, just south of Pittsburgh is building the homes, MHProNews has learned, which will be ready Nov. 1. Linda Metropulos of Action Housing Inc. says, “There are thousands of infill or vacant lots in the city where affordable housing can be built.” Having moved to town nine years ago to work at the hospital, Fasiuddin says, “I focused on using local resources, not only for labor, but all the materials as well. I believe in small-house concept, and each project is intentionally small for the one- to three-person household.”
