Going up on the LSU campus almost in the shadow of famed Tiger Stadium, the Louisiana House Home and Landscape Center – LaHouse – will be a permanent, evolving showcase with acres of educational landscape exhibits, a teaching center and exhibit space providing educational outreach to consumers, construction professionals and youth. LaHouse will include a range of practical and proven solutions, from no-cost to higher-end products and systems for both new and existing homes. LaHouse will be a hub of ongoing educational outreach through distance education and a network of extension educators on site and in all 64 parishes of Louisiana. (Photo by John Wozniak)
