Construction is well under way on an energy-efficient, 1600-square-feet Habitat for Humanity home on Dowd Avenue.
It's beginning to look like a home.
The project is moving along smoothly, after officials hosted a "wall-raising ceremony" last month.
Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity will oversee the construction of the four-bedroom, 1600-square-feet home.
But this isn’t your mother’s Habitat for Humanity.
The home will use 50 percent less energy than its Birdtown neighbors, and the architectural style is aimed at “blending in” with the neighborhood.
The home is expected to be "move-in ready" by March.
Second Habitat home construction to begin soon
There’s another Habitat home set for construction this summer.
That project, at 1549 Lakewood Avenue, the site of a former apartment complex deemed a “nuisance” by the city and demolished in August, is expected to begin soon.
The project on Lakewood Avenue — the land originally considered for a new pocket park — is expected to have a similar design.
Among the few differences, the Lakewood Avenue home would have a wrap-around porch and a larger lot.
