Community Rebuilds has completed two projects in Gunnison County, Colorado. After connecting with a straw bale builder invested in the Gunnison community, we decided to expand our model, trialling a new location. One home using our traditional, single-story floor plan was built in Gunnison in 2013, and a three-level duplex was built in Mount Crested Butte in 2016.
AFFORDABLE HOUSING NEED
A popular skiing destination, the towns of Mount Crested Butte and Crested Butte afford visitors with stunning views, and first class ski resorts. Although known for their winter offerings, the community experiences year round housing demands. Many of the locals who work at the resort and in the community live in the town of Gunnison, which has subsequently driven up the demand, and therefore cost of housing for the entire valley. To learn more about the housing needs of Gunnsion County, check out the 2016 Gunnsion Valley Housing Needs Assessment.
