Nonprofit housing group breaks ground

Kulshan Community Land Trust started construction on three homes that the company calls its most advanced homes yet.

The three homes, on Lafayette Street in the Birchwood Neighborhood, are designed to be energy efficient with extra insulation, fiber-cement siding, and solar panels, according to a press release.

The nonprofit organization aims to create affordable homes for people with modest income.

Kulshan Community Land Trust modeled the Lafayette Street homes after its earlier project, Madrona Street homes.

As with the Madrona Street homes, the group partnered with local builders Cascade Joinery.

“It’s exciting to see these homes become a reality,” Cascade Joinery CEO John Miller said. “They are compact, beautiful and will last for years to come.”
