NE 24th Avenue (2001)

October 5, 2001 · by Travis Phillips · New Construction

PCRI deconstructed an existing home on this property and subdivided the lot to build two single-family row homes on either side of a new shared driveway.  Each 925 square foot home features two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs with kitchen, living and dining rooms and a half-bath downstairs.  Washer and dryer hookups are also located inside the homes.

In addition to re-use of an existing site near local services, schools, parks and transportation, sustainability was carefully considered throughout the project.  An innovative turbonics heating system with separate thermostats in each room works in conjunction with energy-efficient windows, doors and insulation to maintain resident comfort.  Healthy non-toxic finishes and materials were used throughout and water-efficient fixtures and landscaping were also incorporated.

Upon completion, the 24th Avenue homes were recognized with the 2001 Governor’s Livability Award.
