Habitat Cabarrus partners with UNC Charlotte on prototype home

CABARRUS COUNTY — UNC Charlotte is working with Habitat for Humanity Cabarrus County in producing a brand new type of home.

Architecture professor Marc Manack is heading up a project in which he and his students have been thinking of new ways to redesign a home for better efficiency and affordability.

Habitat for Cabarrus Resource Director Kimberly Jones spoke about the prototype at an affordable housing roundtable with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson in Kannapolis last month.

She dove further into the project with Professor Manack in a YouTube video Wednesday.

“We’re very appreciative you and your team took on this project and this challenge,” Jones said.
