Building Futures’ construction pre-apprentice graduates are gaining valuable hands-on experience while making a lasting impact on our Olneyville neighborhood. As a partner with ONE Neighborhood Builders’ Sheridan Street Small Homes project, Building Futures graduates are building:
Five net-zero, single-family homes. Each home includes:
- 2 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom, and balcony
- 750sq/ft of living space
- Solar power production offsets the owner’s expenses
- Intended for buyers earning 70%-100% AMI- starting at $140,000
The homes are located along the Woonasquatucket River Greenway bike path.
Small Homes is improving the physical, social, and economic health of our neighborhood and empowering neighborhood residents in both how they live their lives and how they make their living.
ONE Neighborhood Builders has linked investments from federal, city, and state dollars to leverage true long-term affordability. The homes will cost $289,000 per home to build and will be sold for $150,000, thanks to investments from Providence HOME, Rhode Island Housing, the RI Office of Energy Resources, NeighborWorks America, and private donors.
