Owner Built Homes

Mutual Self-Help Program (owner built homes) is a partnership with NeighborWorks and USDA Rural Development. Qualified buyers earn instant equity costs by working with a group of other families to help build their own homes. Their labor is called “sweat equity” and it can make homes affordable.  Hard work is the key to this project, along with a desire to work together to build our community and new homes. The group commits to building their own homes, and embarks on a guided development that turns the dream into reality.
