Current building sites
Asheville Area Habitat is currently building a subdivision off Dennis Street in the Beacon Village area of Swannanoa. Construction started in spring 2013 and is expected to finish by the end of 2014. When complete, the subdivision will boast 17 new Green Built NC single-family 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes. The Arts-and-Crafts style houses are between 900 and 1,400 square feet. The wide array of sponsors in this neighborhood signifies the immense community support for affordable housing in the East Valley. From teenagers and faith groups to corporate sponsors and everyday people who want to remember a friend: it’s thanks to the community that Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity is able to build neighborhoods with hard-working, deserving families seeking a safe, decent and affordable home.
“Safe and decent shelter is a basic human need that knows no geographic boundaries. Here in Buncombe County and in partnership with five other countries, we strive to eliminate substandard housing."
~ Lew Kraus, Executive Director of Asheville Area Habitat.Read More
