December, 2016: Repair program – on hold until further notice!

Because it’s winter now, and because both our staff and volunteers are working hard to complete the USDA homes currently under construction,  we made the decision to put our Repair program on hold until further notice.   There is LOTS of construction work available on the new homes we’re building –  it’s just the Repair program for existing homes  that’s been put on hold.    We apologize for doing this.  If you know of people with experience doing home repairs,  send them our way so we can re-start the Home Repair program in the spring!

2017 Reedsburg USDA Self-Help Housing Update – April 10, 2017: 1 building lot is still “for sure” available! Make it yours!

We’ve extended the deadline to apply for one of the 5, count ’em, FIVE,   USDA Self-Help homes slated to start this summer in Reedsburg!    We still have 1,  or maybe 2, building lots available.  To fill out the Pre-Qualification form, call or text  the Self-Help Housing cell phone at:  608-370-4931.  Or call the HFHWRA office with questions at 608-448-2888.  MOVE QUICKLY – we want to get building under way!    If you h ave looked on the “conventional” market for a home this spring, you know there isn’t much out there at a great price.  If you’re willing to spend 1 year of your spare time helping with construction,  the USDA’s Self-Help Housing program will get you a great, brand new, home for a LOT less money!
