Alligator House - New Orleans

This affordable home is being built as part of the Post-Katrina rehousing effort in New Orleans. buildingstudio approached  one of its clients in Boulder, CO to see if they'd be willing to contribute toward an affordable home for a Katrina refugee. Not only did the clients generously give their own money, they went into their community and raised additional funds towards the cost of construction. When finished, Neighborhood Housing Services who promotes and markets low-cost properties will offer the house at a vastly reduced rate.
 One of the most inventive and creative ways talented people are helping solve housing problems in post-Katrina NOLA.  I love the design. To read more of the story, click the link.

And so it goes.
