January/February 2022: Residential Construction special section
In the decade after World War II, Florida’s population nearly doubled, leading to a boom of residential construction up and down the state. That growth continues to this day, despite national stagnation.

So how are Floridians housing themselves? In the following pages, we highlight three case studies from the Sunshine State that point to promising housing solutions. Additionally, we call out the latest innovations—from IoT wares to uber-efficient HVAC systems—in the residential construction space.
