I am pleased to donate three small house designs to the Mad River Valley Housing Coalition for use in their Affordable Land initiative. The Housing Coalition has identified the cost of land as the biggest obstacle for a working family to be able to build a modest home in the Mad River Valley. MRVHCs Affordable Land initiative offers property at little or no cost to people who live or work in the Valley and want to build their first home. In addition to land, the Housing Coalition offers designs for small, energy-efficient homes for use at no cost. One of the my small house designs is pictured below.
