Brief Description: This project is an infill new construction of a single family detached home in SE Rochester. This new home will have two bedrooms and one bathroom. The project design is based on simple construction, special attention to a high performance building envelope, and an HVAC system engineered to minimize utility bills and maintain a high level of homeowner comfort. This home has features that will enable a homeowner to age in place such as no step entry, one level living, hard surface flooring, 3ft wide doors, and grab bars in the bathroom. 

This home is being built in partnership with RCTC’s Carpentry program, which will enable a class of future home builders to experience working on affordable homeownership projects. 

First Homes targets potential home buyers in the 60-80% of Area Median Income range. This home will be added to the First Homes Community Land Trust to ensure it remains permanently affordable. 

Your contributions will be used to fill in the affordability gap. Affordability gap is the cost difference between the Market Value of the home and the Affordable CLT Selling Price.
