Significance: The Armco-Ferro House is one of five houses from the Home and Industrial Arts Group moved at the end of the fair by Robert Bartlett to his lakeside subdivision at Beverly Shores, Indiana. In addition, this was one of six houses at the fair using steel construction with standardized pre-fabricated parts. The house was essentially frameless and contained no rafters, studs or joists. In addition, the house was used to showcase porcelain enamel for house siding, a new use for a material that had been used for more utilitarian purposes such as bathroom fixtures and kitchen appliances. This porcelain enamel house can be viewed as the predecessor to Lustron homes, three of which are located at Beverly Shores.
