Construction is underway at the Canon Perdido Affordable Homes construction site! We are currently in the framing phase of the project and are busy raising the walls of the 12 new affordable homes.
Habitat for Humanity of Southern Santa Barbara County has set a goal for the project to achieve "net zero" energy usage. Due to its unique design and cutting edge green features, Habitat for Humanity SSBC is pursuing "Santa Barbara Built Green" Level 4 and "Passive House US" certifications. Many design strategies, building techniques, and green products will contribute to this project achieving such high standards. The end goal is to make the energy costs as low as possible for the future homeowners, making homeownership affordable for the longterm.
If you would like to volunteer and help build these homes, please sign up online. We hope to see you at the site soon!
