From it’s Ohio Factory 2850 were produced and shipped to 36 states on specially designed for easy assembly semi-trailers. It was built to be efficient, maintenance free and extremely durable. The enameled steel panels inside and out- held together with steel framing. Almost all original steel built-in features- including built-in Master vanity, closets with sliding doors, exterior steel doors, asphalt tile floors, functioning windows, cabinets, and hutch. The home is bright, open and spacious. Large bedrooms and windows that allow natural light throughout. Utility room has the official Lustron badge and the disabled original furnace intact showing it’s provenance. Newer well concealed HVAC system. The garage is accessed via enclosed breezeway, now the Florida Room, with freestanding spa. Garage features a an extra room and 1/2 bath easily convertible to 2nd full bath makes it ripe for Airbnb, office or studio space. Hot Seminole Heights address w/3 walkable parks nearby.
