Constructed in 1958, the Behlen House is located in Columbus. The 8,500 square foot residence is an irregularly shaped one-story steel building with a corrugated metal roof. It has a concrete slab foundation and encorporates corrugated steel load-bearing walls fabricated at the Behlen Manufacturing Company. The house was built as a showcase for the potential uses of industrial materials for domestic purposes.
