At only 308-square-feet, this cute yellow house known as the Katrina Cottage  grew out of the unique housing crisis facing the Gulf Coast. With four different variations based on the vernacular architecture of the Gulf Coast region, complete with front porches that include built-in seating, each house is designed to shelter a family of four.
Designed by cottage designer Marianne Cusato  and architect Eric Moser, the Katrina Cottage  can be sited to serve as a “Grow House” or a rear guest cottage when a new house is built on the lot, providing immediate sanctuary while giving way to a new life for those left shelterless on the Gulf Coast.
