Build Progress

Volunteers and homeowners build these homes. Cities provide their full support. Donors provide funds, materials and services. Homes are currently underway in Cypress, Fullerton and Santa Ana.

 

Cypress

 

Development:  Cypress II, Lincoln Avenue
Land: City  of Cypress Redevelopment Agency
Design: Fifteen attached town homes of 1, 2, and 3 bedrooms. Each home, with the exception of the one bedroom, will have attached 2 car garages. Open spaces will be provided for guest parking. Exteriors will be compatible with the surrounding neighborhood providing a high quality aesthetic value to the community.

Six of the homes will be developed and sold to Moderate Income families (81%-120% of Area Median Income, AMI.) The "income over sales" will be used to develop nine homes sold to buyers with less than 81% AMI.

Energy and resource savings will be realized by the installation of:
  • On-demand hot water heating system
  • Dual pane argon gas filled Low-E vinyl windows
  • Upgraded wall and roof insulation
  • On-demand hot water recirculation system
  • Energy star appliances
  • Low flush toilets and faucets
Additional green features to be incorporated in the homes include recycled sub-base aggregate concrete and asphalt for roads and driveways, construction waste reduction measures, and storm water infiltration systems to reduce the hydrocarbon run-off and recharge the groundwater aquifers.
Status: Building dates are approximately March 2013 - April 2016

 


 

Fullerton
Habitat OC Fullerton ABC Green Homes

 

Development:  Fullerton III ABC Green Homes
Land: City of Fullerton
Design: The vision of the "ABC" Green Home design is to create an Affordable, Buildable, and Certifiable home, incorporating Universal Design built for the way families really live: affordable to the widest range of home buyers possible, buildable anywhere in the country and certifiable by any rating organization. The three homes are to be built with at least three bedrooms.

The footprint of the home is a very efficient, almost square house plan that allows for the shortest mechanical runs possible. A two-car garage is attached to the home, but unlike most homes, the access isn't through the laundry room, but off the back porch. This keeps most toxic fumes found in a home, automobile exhaust, out of the living space to allow the residents improved air quality. The overall dimensions are whole feet and, where possible, whole feet measurements are used throughout to allow for modular construction with minimal waste.

The three homes will be developed and sold to limited-Income families (51%-80% of Area Median Income, AMI).

Energy and resource savings will be realized by the installation of:
  • On-demand hot water heating system
  • Dual pane argon gas filled Low-E vinyl windows
  • Upgraded wall and roof insulation
  • On-demand hot water recirculation system
  • Energy star appliances
  • Low flush toilets and faucets
Additional green features to be incorporated in the homes include recycled sub-base aggregate concrete and asphalt for roads and driveways as well as construction waste reduction measures.
Status: Building dates are approximately January 2016 - December 2016

 



Santa Ana


The above is an example of one home being built in Santa Ana.

Development:  Santa Ana VI
Land: City of Santa Ana
Design:

Seventeen homes to be built in three phases at various locations in the city. The homes are in configurations of 3 and 4 bedrooms, each with 2.5 baths. All the homes will be designed with a 2 car attached garage. These homes will be compatible with surrounding neighborhoods and add a high quality aesthetic value to the community.

Ten of the homes will be developed and sold to moderate-income families (81%-120% of the Area Median Income, AMI.) The "income over costs" from the sale of these units will be used to develop seven homes sold to buyers with less than 81% AMI.

Energy and resource savings will be realized by the installation of:
  • On-demand hot water heating system
  • Dual pane argon gas filled Low-E vinyl windows
  • Upgraded wall and roof insulation
  • On-demand hot water recirculation system
  • Energy star appliances
  • Low flush toilets and faucets
Additional green features to be incorporated in the homes include recycled sub-base aggregate concrete and asphalt for roads and driveways, construction waste reduction measures, and storm water infiltration systems to reduce the hydrocarbon run-off and recharge the groundwater aquifers.
Status: Building dates are approximately March 2012 to May 2017
