On Thursday, October 22, the team from Chipola Area Habitat for Humanity met with representatives from Auburn University Rural Studio and Chipola College for a preconstruction meeting and site visit. The lots included in this project site will soon be home to four new homes.
This project is unique in that these homes will be one or two-bedroom models, which allows Habitat to build on smaller lots than usual and provide housing in spaces that would typically be too small for the standard three-to-four-bedroom Habitat home.
This is also the first time that an owner hasn’t been identified and pre-approved ahead of the build. Chipola Area Habitat for Humanity hopes that seniors and veterans in particular will apply for ownership of the homes.
