Alaska Adaptable Housing: Building the Future One Innovation at a Time

In 2022, Alaska Adaptable Housing, LLC (AAH) was born with a mission to revolutionize housing design, construction, and engagement right here in Alaska. The vision? Innovate, educate, and build stronger communities. We’re talking about standardized construction systems, a shared online housing design, an innovation platform, and community-led building initiatives that maximize local materials, expertise, and labor use.

With the potential of a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase 1 grant, AAH will focus on developing a key component of its standardized kit-of-parts building system.

Why is this a game-changer? It means AAH will design, construct, and test a plug-and-play facade attachment system and develop an associated manufacturing plan. This will enable on-site installation, meaning the system can be assembled anywhere, anytime, by anyone – no special skills or tools are needed.Join AAH on their incredible journey towards more adaptable, sustainable, and accessible housing!
