Erection Manual

Each Lustron Home came with its very own “Erection Manual,” because Lustrons were assembled from a kit of parts, contractors built them following the manual rather than by using traditional floor plans which were used for a conventional wood or masonry house. The 193-page Erection Manual was composed of a series of drawings which detailed the assembly process. Each drawing in the was numbered in the bottom right corner. The order of the drawings generally followed the order of erection, beginning with the foundation. The drawings were often revised, as is noted near the drawing number. As a result, if you have a copy of an erection manual, it might be slightly different from another copy that was produced in a different month for the same model.

Although there were erection manuals for each model, all are similar to the one for the Westchester 02 Model, which is available on this website and the manual we use for illustrations. The erection manual can be very helpful in understanding your Lustron, particularly when you are repairing your Lustron. If you need to remove panels or other components the manual can help you figure out the best way to do it. Understanding how the house was assembled is essential if you’re taking it apart – and want to put it back together again. The Lustron Corporation also issued a set of Master Specifications, which were modified repeatedly.

The specifications set design standards for items not provided by Lustron, such as the appropriate excavation for the foundation slab and the proper finish and curing time for the concrete. In addition, the specifications contained quality standards for specific components supplied by Lustron, like the roof panels, door frames, and bathroom fixtures.

Downloading the Erection Manual

Below you will find the individual pages of the Erection Manual available for download.  This was done to make the file sizes more managable and not sacrafice too much quality. Still, in order to download the manual you will need two things: a high speed internet connection and Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you do not have a high-speed internet connection, they will take a long time to download. If you do not have Adobe Writer, you will need to install a free copy.
