Drafting and Content Development AmeriCorps VISTA

Period of Assignment: April 16th, 2021 - April 16th, 2022

Goal of the Project:

 

The Moab, Utah community has an affordable housing shortage as tourism economies expand, and the limited inventory of homes on the market are purchased for vacation and nightly rentals. Community Rebuilds counters this trend by building affordable homes to improve the housing conditions of low-income residents of Moab by increasing the housing stock with energy efficient deed restricted homes. Community Rebuilds seeks to recruit a Drafting and Content Developer VISTA to create documents, drawings, and systems, in preparation of increasing the number of homes built annually from 6 to 12. This VISTA position will work closely with Project Manager and Executive Director to develop content for organization, such as guides, manuals, and construction drawings, and will create systems, vendor lists, and ordering schedules, to streamline the construction process and reduce the budget for the low income homeowners.

Objective of the Assignment 

By July 1st 2021:

  1. Research healthy and affordable materials, establish vendors, create a vendor database and ordering schedule.

  2. Develop a Homeowner Decision Guide to assist participants through design determinations and deadlines.

  3. Develop systems and create content such as training guides, checklists, and fact sheets about natural building techniques and purposes.

  2. Design curriculum for instructors, building interns, and homeowners to assist with the construction of the homes.
