Defense housing, Erie, Pennsylvania. The entire framework, including sections for doors and windows, is fabricated horizontally. The crew working here will later move to another site and repeat the procedure. This circulation of crews who are experienced in one type of construction adds to the speed with which defense homes are being built. Two crews of forty men each are used to raise the stud frames of a four-unit defense home. On the project shown here, one crew started the framework at 8:30am, fabricating it horizontally, and finished it at noon. The other crew moved in shortly after, erected the stud frame, ends, and floor joists, and finished the entire framework by 4:30pm the same day

Defense housing, Erie, Pennsylvania. Living conditions were so crowded in Erie, Pennsylvania, that a defense worker and his family of three were found to be living in this attic room. One of the defense industries there, which holds large contracts for the Navy, expects an increase of 4,000 workers during the coming year. Practically all vacancies are already taken, and even the contemplated construction of new homes will fill only a fraction of the need. Realizing the urgency of this need, the Division of Defense Housing has programmed 300 homes in this area, 60 of which are already completed (July 1941). In the meantime, trailers are being used by the Division as a temporary expedient until the more permanent homes are completed
