Come celebrate our 29th, 30th, and 31st homes built in Moab with Community Rebuilds and homeowners:  Shelia Strahan, Taz Sorg, and Chelsea Cobb

 

On Wednesday, June 26th, from 3:00-7:00 pm MST, Community Rebuilds will open the doors to the 3 recently completed homes. Homeowners, staff, and interns invite you to take a tour of the finished energy efficient homes, equipped with solar panels, adobe floors, and earthen plaster finishes. The homes are located at 476 and 386 Huntridge Drive, and 2812 Spanish Valley Drive.

 

Community Rebuilds’ Spring semester began on February 1st, when 16 student interns from all across the nation were welcomed into the community. These student interns came to live in Moab for 5 months to learn how to build beautiful straw bale homes from foundation to finish with Community Rebuilds. 

 

The three homes are both our two bedroom one bath model. The homes feature beautiful finish details including tadelakt showers, lime plaster, and a plaster relief mural of Angel Arch.  

 

Community Rebuilds has received overwhelming support from the Moab community, the generous student interns, and our dedicated staff. Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate a healthy, affordable housing solution in Moab!

 

Fall 2019 is going to be an exciting semester for Community Rebuilds. We will be building our next homes at the corner of Millcreek and Millcreek – where our old intern housing once stood. We will be building these homes in the hopes of getting them Living Building Challenge (LBC) certified. LBC is an intensive certification for regenerative buildings. These certified buildings will feature rain water catchment systems, sustainably harvested wood, and designated agricultural areas.

 

By the end of 2019 Community Rebuilds will have built a total of 40 homes, and educated roughly 300 students in rural communities in Utah, Colorado, and Arizona since our start in 2010.  

 

Community Rebuilds’ mission is to build energy-efficient housing, provide education on sustainability, and improve the housing conditions of the workforce through an affordable program.
