In a factory on Polk Street, “we’ve built the biggest thing legally allowable on Chicago streets,” said Tim Swanson, an architect and founder of Inherent L3C. And by the end of July, they’ll truck it to a vacant lot on Lawndale Avenue, followed by a second unit the same size. Each unit is a full 720-square-foot floor of the future two-story house.

Inherent employs 14 people at its factory in the K-Town section of North Lawndale. Swanson said that if the firm gets up to full capacity, it can build 100 houses a year.
