ORGANIZATION: Affordable Housing in Texas

image_20240604141931

As a newly formed community land trust dedicated to providing affordable places to live, in our pilot phase we are hoping to leverage the goodwill of people who are skilled with experience building homes. Our first two units are using shipping containers, but they do have an element of stick built.

We need someone who can read architectural & structural engineer drawings.

An ideal person would live in Texas Hill Country so that once a month they can come to the location and ensure everything is going right and maybe even supervise worker volunteers.

Our best guess is that this person would be able to join a call (60 - 90) minutes weekly. There may be times that calls will be shorter.

If you are interested in making a contribution to advance the cause of affordable housing, we welcome you to consider us. We are happy to jump on a call to discuss further. Thank you for your consideration.

About Affordable Housing in Texas

Location:

P O Box 652, Buchanan Dam, TX 78609, US

Mission Statement

We provide affordable units to rent or for first time home buyers, using a community land trust to ensure the residence stays affordable in perpetuity.

Description

We are a newly formed community land trust located in Texas Hill Country. In our pilot phase, we are building four units in two counties. We want to see how long it would take us to build or acquire 100 units in the Highland Lakes area and then 1,000 units in Texas Hill Country. We will use as much repurposed / earth-friendly material whether building, acquiring or updating units.
