During WW-II there were restrictions on home building and rationing of strategic materials, including lumber, which was used for truck bodies, rail cars, and crating. Even nails were hard to come by.
It's hard to imagine that there was a time when it was necessary to introduce the concept of central air conditioning to potential home owners. But in 1955 NAHB produced a 31-page document covering all the basics about this new convenience, even offering results of a survey on air conditioning's "effects on family life." Among its conclusions: husbands living in air conditioned homes "brought far more office work home." (The report doesn't indicate whether or not this was considered a benefit!)
In 1987 the Nation's one hundred millionth home completed. (How do they KNOW that?!)
In 1949 membership hits 14,000 with 120 local chapters. Today NAHB boasts a membership of 235,000 members in more than 800 local associations.
In 1962 President John Kennedy signed an Executive Order banning housing descrimination.
