SPECIAL INFORMATION

LaHouse will be a home and landscape resource center of the LSU AgCenter located on university property in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It will showcase and teach a range of practical concepts of sustainable living and residential home and landscape design that address national and Louisiana challenges. Its goal is to stimulate consumer demand and industry adoption of these concepts and practices.

The fully developed site is envisioned to include a showcase house, environmental landscapes with trails, porous "green" parking, an outdoor pavilion, and a future exhibition hall with larger meeting space. All areas will have explanatory signage.

* Note: Cost per Square Foot is not listed because it is not indicative of a real house. LaHouse is a showcase with multiple building systems, each with a different cost, and it includes offices, a classroom and public bathrooms. The actual cost is much less since most products were donated.
