A dedication ceremony was held yesterday for the “Modeste” house, an innovate 216-square foot tiny house designed by UL architecture students.
The home, which was donated to Habitat for Humanity, has a ton of futuristic features and energy-efficient heating and cooling. It will become home to a New Iberia resident who lost his home in the August 2016 floods.
It’s very sustainable with solar panels, highly insulated walls, and very efficient appliances. It’s a huge thing for our department.” said UL Architecture Professor W. Geoff Gjertson. “It’s wonderful to be able to serve the community, but most important it is a great as an educational tool for the students.”
