The MorHaus approach was to develop a highly functional basic form and provide clients with the ability to configure the structure to meet their needs. We are hoping to not only provide a Garden Structure for extra Office/Studio space, but also the opportunity to install to help with Emergency or Homeless Housing.
The trusses are shipped pre-cut and pre-drilled. Then they are bolted together on-site. The MorHaus method locates a truss every 4 feet with panels that are used for floor, wall and ceiling/roof structure between each truss for enclosed sections and a straight forward deck framing for porch sections. This allows for a high degree of flexibility in the system as any number of enclosed or porch sections – in any configuration – can be used.
Two people can assemble/disassembled the trusses, move them into position and erect the building with the instructions provided in a single day.
Our shop is headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina; as such we obtain most of our materials from the Southeast. This venture was born out of a keen interest in efficiently sized structures and the lack of interesting designs in the marketplace. The structure’s modular designed is flexible enough to meet many needs with a single unifying form. Customers can select from many options including assembly, insulation, interior finishes, electrical and plumbing. The structures are built from pre-fabricated modular components and can be assembled over a weekend by a crew of 2 or 3 with basic carpentry skills.
The design philosophy was conceived by Craig W. Isaac (Architect) and developed with David Kroening (General Contractor). Craig and David worked together on many conventional projects over the past 15 years including several award winning residential renovations. However, they both wanted to develop a fresh, creative and architecturally interesting approach to high quality accessory structures that clients would be proud to own. Moreover, they wanted a design that was flexible enough to integrate enclosed and outdoor spaces in one structure as well as a design that could be expanded to sizes necessary for a weekend retreat or guest house.
The result is MorHaus. Visit their website by clicking Here.
