The article interviews Rockhill about the unusual enclosed dogtrot house at 701 Ala. and Jennifer McKnight, who lives in the house with her partner, Spencer Sievers. McKnight owns two used-clothing stores in Lawrence.

The house is a long industrial rectangle with flush steel windows and a corrugated aluminum roof. It has a galvanized steel staircase inspired by nearby railroad grain loading facilities. The kitchen cabinets are made from reconstituted garbage bags.
