Let’s face it: Aluminum isn’t the sexiest building material. That’s probably why, in the 1950s, the Alcoa company created the Care-free Home program. Some 24 model homes went up to showcase the low-maintenance material put to use in modern housing.
While the aluminum-housing craze never caught on beyond the model homes, the ones on the market are rare finds: The only one built in Oregon is in Portland, and it’s available for $950,000.
