Starter Home Two is a project of New Orleans-based OJT (Office of Jonathan Tate). Small Change crowdfunded the bank’s equity requirement on the construction loan for this project that is bringing to market two new single-family homes on vacant lots in New Orleans’ Milan neighborhood. Starter Home Two is a project designed to respond to issues of vacancy and affordability. The projects takes irregularly shaped vacant lots – often costly and cumbersome liabilities to develop – and introduces into the landscape a flexible, highly-designed housing form. And it does so at an affordable entry point for first-time homebuyers. Take a look at the design progress to date via the slideshow below.
