Have you heard about the innovative effort from Chesapeake Habitat?  They’re starting construction on nine houses on 9-09.  Yes, you read that correctly — NINE houses on September the 9th.  They’ll be constructing them through the month of September, and the homeowners will move in October the 17th.  What makes these homes unique is the fact that they’re modular homes — you may have read about the growing momentum around modular housing in shelter magazines like Dwell and news outlets like Business Week and the Wall Street Journal — and now Baltimore will have nine of them, right on Fayette Street.

They’re having a kickoff party on September the 9th — for more information, download the flyer (PDF chesapeake_hh ) or visit their website for contact information.
