IS THIS YOURS?
IT COULD BE!
WHAT IS OWNER-BUILT or SELF-HELP HOUSING?
A place to call home is what most of us wish for and work towards. For many, it simply seems like a dream, but it can be a reality!
Mountain Projects, Inc. is looking for families to build their own affordable homes through USDA’s Self-Help Housing Program and become homeowners instead of renters.
Groups of families work together to help each other build homes under the guidance of a construction supervisor. The groups provide at least 65% of the construction labor. Hard work is the key, along with a willingness to work cooperatively with other participants. Homes are usually completed within six months of breaking ground.
Labor provided by the families reduces the cost of the homes approximately 30%. This reduction in conjunction with low interest rates and no down payment can make home ownership affordable for you.
With the Self-Help Housing you must be eligible for a Rural Development loan and be willing to participate in a construction group.
