2 Years in the planning… It’s been worth the wait! The greenLIFEproject is set to raise the bar on affordable housing. The new 300 O’Conner Court home is a partnership between the Greenville County Redevelopment Authority, Greenville Technical College, Aaron-Kelli Builders and GreenArch Design Group. This Energy Star certified affordable house is modeled after the ‘Erin Cottage’, a Pocket Neighborhood plan book house designed by Ross Chapin Architects of Seattle, Washington. The ‘Erin Cottage’ plan book house is $150/sqft 3 bedroom 2 bath 1,302 sqft house designed for the temperate climate of the Pacific Northwest and didn’t even have air conditioning! Our challenge was to ‘affordablize’ and acclimatize the plan for the hot humid Southeast. The result is a 4 bedroom 2 bath 1,363 sqft home that is being built for $66/sqft.
