Houses While You Wait (Jun, 1946)
Houses While You Wait are the product of this giant house-building machine, which erects a two-bedroom concrete home in 24 hours. After the giant machine is wheeled into the desired location, its great box-like mold is lowered into position over a previously constructed framework. Concrete is then poured into the top of the mold. When the concrete has hardened, the mold is raised, and there is the house. The picture at the top shows the mold being lowered over a framework. At the right is a picture showing the mold being raised from a house after the concrete has hardened. A finished house may be seen at the right of the machine.
