Owner Built Homes

NeighborWorks' Owner Built Homes program 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 eachothers' homes, and in doing so help to build one another's dreams.. Their labor is called “sweat equity” and is what makes these 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.
