ADi’s Helaina Balcanoff has been the designer (and more) for a new Habitat home on Smith Street in Greenfield, MA. Way to go Helaina! The Greenfield Recorder ran a story today, excerpted below. Full story here.

If you’ve ever dreamed of building your own energy-efficient home but haven’t been able to get financing, a local nonprofit may be able to help. Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity is accepting applications to build an affordable, single-family home in Greenfield with a sale price of $139,000 or less. Eligible applicants will have incomes up to 70 percent of area median income, which is adjusted for family size.

Those interested in submitting an application are invited to attend information sessions on Tuesday, June 6, at 6 p.m. and Saturday, June, 10 at 10 a.m. at the Greenfield Public Library.

The two-bedroom zero net energy home will be built on Smith Street. Thanks to local company PV Squared, the house will have solar panels. Franklin County Technical High School will contribute help from several trades and Austin Design of Colrain has donated its architectural services.
