About this Blog

The New Norris House is a design/build effort from the University of Tennessee's College of Architecture and Design.

A team of 4 people (2 living in the home, and 2 graduate researchers) will rigorously document the experience via qualitative assessments and quantitative measurements, posting results to this blog.
