The course will move students through the design and construction of a single-family home. We'll work within the constraints a local non-profit developer. The process will move from the due diligence of lot selection and determining the best use for a lot within the guidelines of an organization moving renters to home ownership. Once a legal footprint is established, a home will be designed to include plans, elevations, structural components, and a sustainability plan based on EarthCraft certification. Project presentations will be delivered to the executive team of the non-profit. In addition, the class will work with Habitat for Humanity over a weekend to gain hands on construction experience.
