This paper presents construction methods for a concrete habitable structure on the Moon. The study was conducted on the assumption that a concrete manufacturing plant has already been established on the Moon and precast concrete components are produced using lunar materials. The major point of this study is that the module can be disassembled into the frame and panels. This paper discusses the artistic design, structural design, manufacturing plant, and construction.
