Everett Wilson had just taken a quick tour of a housing tract that may be the wave of the future in Southern California--and he was not much impressed. Many of the houses under construction at the new south Orange County development are as small as 870 square feet--about a third the size of a typical 7-Eleven. On top of that, about 15 homes sit on each acre of land--about twice the number in a typical tract.

The crew at RecreActions Group of Cos. in Newport Beach launched a revolutionary set of plans last year: extremely high-density detached housing--as many as 18 homes to an acre. Architects McLarand, Vasquez & Partners in Costa Mesa designed the project, which uses auto courtyards and some creative lot shapes to squeeze so many homes onto so little land while allowing for rear and side yards that separate each house.

The two-story 1,000-square-foot home--built in a factory and taken by trailer to its lot in Newport Beach--is the first manufactured house ever to win a Grand Award for design in the 34-year history of the Gold Nuggets, the oldest and biggest competition of its kind in the United States.

Merchants use targeted direct mail these days to sell everything from magazines to mausoleum spaces, from computers to credit cards. So when Michael Peralta was thinking of ways to expand his business last year, it was natural for him to think of direct mail as a way to peddle new homes. The resulting publications--four glossy booklets carrying $600,000 worth of ads from 165 builders--began arriving last week in apartment renters' mailboxes throughout Southern California.

Is this a home builder's worst nightmare or what? First, picture 152 new houses built in an area of the northern Antelope Valley with an unusually high incidence of childhood cancer--possibly linked to nearby toxic waste sites. Next, 19 of the homes are straddling a known earthquake fault line and had to be set back an extra 15 feet from the street. And that's not all. The new residents are more than eight miles from the nearest major shopping center in Palmdale.
