In the summer of 2018 Homes for Good was approached by the City of Cottage Grove and Post 32 of the American Legion about providing more affordable housing for veterans in Cottage Grove. The American Legion owns a vacant 0.16 acre parcel right next to its building which it wants to use for this purpose. Homes for Good will build 4 tiny Homes on this parcel. Homes for Good staff approached the University of Oregon OregonBILDS program. This program led by Professor Rob Thallon has partnered with Homes for Good to build single family homes that are then sold as affordable housing. In this case the partnership would include the students designing four cottages or tiny homes in one school term and then under direction of a contractor, constructing the homes in two terms. Once they are constructed they would be rented to low income veterans. The property is located just across the street from Riverview Terrace which is a large public housing affordable community managed by Homes for Good. The on-site manager and maintenance team would manage the new homes and help provide a supportive community for the residence of the new homes.
