Colusa Transitional Housing

A low income transitional housing will be located in Colusa County. The proposal is to design a five multi-housing unit design on a limited budget. This design focuses on five factors: economical, user friendly, safety for families, environmental friendly and wheelchair accessibility.

One unique design element of this low income transitional housing is the landscape development. Seasonal edible fruit trees will be planted on different locations within the complex. A children’s hide and seek playground will be made from an arrangement of several large stones. A small outdoor BBQ and fireplace area will provide residents a weekly gathering place.

The window orientations of each unit is designed for minimum sun light/heat gain during summer and maximizes sun light/heat gain during winter.

The construction date begins in the summer of 2011.
