A scenario:

Were a few decades into the future. Rampant neoliberal capitalism has taken over every aspect of life. The building industry has been revolutionised by technologies such as 3d printing, which is a much cheaper option for the construction companies than employing workers. These workers are out of jobs, but still have the skillsets they acquired.

In this hypercapitalist world, HOME DEPOT grows to a grotesque scale. What hasn't been taken up by WALMART or MALLS, is residual space - space ready to be filled with something.

With the universal basic income, the construction workers chose to build - it is their final triumph in the face of the economic machine. They go to home depot, and use their $1000 to buy a kit - a kit designed to build THE original house: the home.
