Demountable employee housing.This brand new type of housing accommodation was developed through several intermediate steps and experiments in prefabrication, in answer to the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority's) need for housing for temporary use on construction projects in remote localities. The scheme permits fabrication at a distance from the job (about 600 miles in this instance), thus reducing dependence on overtaxed accommodations at the construction project. After completion of the project, the demountable housing is quickly removed elsewhere. Some of the earlier TVA demountables have been moved three times from project to project. The design shown here is particularly light in weight due to full use of the recently developed stressed-skin system of plywood construction. It is built largely of weatherproof plywood. The large bay across the front greatly enhances the size of the living room. The trailer houses, on the basis of experience to date, are entirely competitive in cost with traditionally constructed housing of the same floor area. On account of being constructed in shops rather than in the field, they are produced with much closer tolerances, considerably better finish, and with equipment designed and constructed with greater detail and superior utilization of space

Demountable employee housing. Because many construction projects are in remote localities where the need for housing exists only during the construction period, the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) developed over a period of years its own method of prefabrication. Houses, recreation buildings, dormitories, washhouses, etc. have been constructed in three dimensional slices which are transported individually, fully equipped, and are coupled up on the site much like cars of a railroad train.

War wagon trailer. This new war wagon trailer made almost entirely of non-critical materials is being tried out in localities where war industry traffic is heavy. The trailer is towed by a converted sedan equipped with one-ton truck axle to take care feet wide and has a seating capacity of twenty-four, as contrasted to the average city bus that seats forty passengers and is approximately thirty-two feet long and eight feet wide of the extra load
