The project is 35,525 SF of new wood frame construction consisting of 30 units in eight buildings plus a community building. Buildings have fiber-cement siding with asphalt shingle roofing with select areas of metal roofing.
To obtain higher energy efficiency the project includes triple pane windows and blown-in insulation in the wall cavity with rigid insulation outboard of the exterior wall framing. Air/Vapor barriers and building sealing will have blower-door testing during construction and at completion.
The compact site includes protection of Natural Heritage Wildlife Habitat. Amenities include a community building, maintenance shed, fenced-in children’s playground, community gardens and a bike shelter.
