California and Massachusetts-based prefab home company Blu Homes just announced that they have teamed with non-profit Homeward Bound of Marin to provide permanent, supportive housing for low-income families in Marin County, California. The project will be called Oma Village, and is going to transform the existing site of an alcohol and drug rehabilitation center into an eco-friendly community of 14 one and two-bedroom homes.

The site is located in the city of Novato, California and the development is estimated to cost $3 million. Homeward Bound is kicking off a capital campaign and hope to complete the project by late next year. The organization will be able to use the expansive marketing network of Blu Homes to help raise the money necessary to provide the much-needed family housing for low-income families in the area of Novato. Homeward Bound envisions rent to be around $500 per month rather than the typical $1,900 in Marin, which will encourage the families to save money.

These homes have been designed to help promote a healthy environment and better well-being for the occupants. Recycled and renewable materials and low-VOC paints will be used to finish the interiors. Highly efficient appliances and heating and ventilation systems will be incorporated into the home, including radiant heat, which will help bring the community near a net-zero Energyrating. With houses manufactured at Blu Homes’ Vallejo warehouse, wastage will be reduced as the homes will be built more efficiently and installed in a quick and affordable fashion.
