The first student-built house in the OregonBILDS (Building Integrated Livable Designs Sustainably) project is on the Home Builder’s Association of Lane County’s 2014 Tour of Homes through July 27. The house was featured in a Register-Guard story about the tour and is open weeknights from 6-9 p.m. and weekends from noon to 6 p.m.
OregonBILDS is a collaboration between students from the School of Architecture and Allied Arts at UO and students from Lane Community College’s construction technology program to design and build affordable, energy efficient single-family homes.
The first in a series of planned student-built homes, the house is located at 384 Hope Loop in west Eugene. Buyers who earn 80 percent or less of Lane County’s median family income are eligible to purchase the home, valued at $175,000.
