Moffitt Houses of Iowa city

Moffitt, who built more than 100 homes in the Iowa City area, was not a contractor, he says, but an entrepreneur who hired out-of-work craftsmen for $1 per day to build the homes, which he then rented.

Because some building supplies were scarce during the Depression era, Moffitt often used salvaged wood, stones and other recycled materials.
