Housing
TVA houses were designed to be functional, affordable, and with simple lines so their silhouettes would not detract from the natural beauty of the land. While these minimalist designs facilitated rapid construction, they also allowed for mobile homes, an essential requirement for such a dispersed workforce. Even with their limiting design criteria, all the houses included the amenities of electric appliances and heating, conveniently supplied by TVA power.
