Knight Affordable Housing Solutions – Create an Affordable Housing Development of 400-600 sq ft Houses in Cheshire County
Our project is build a community of smaller, more affordable houses in Cheshire County to help with the housing crisis and provide more options for people that can't afford or don't want the larger mortgage that comes with the larger houses that are currently on the market. Our goal is to build 1 to 2 bedroom 400-600 sq ft houses (not condos) for $100,000-$150,000 (under $1,000 monthly mortgage payment-including all taxes and insurance), each with their own yard, parking, privacy, rights to modify, etc. Besides a lower mortgage payment, living in a smaller house provides many benefits, including less cleaning and maintenance, more money to spend on fun stuff like traveling or freedom to work less, more time outside and with family/friends, less environmental impact/more sustainable, etc.
