Casa Mendoza

The first ever Habitat for Humanity house built in Green River seeks to be a model of affordable, stick-built housing, while simultaneously serving as a community-built initiative that improves the quality of life for a local family, the Mendozas.

Design features include simple design details, only six exterior corners, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, minimal hallways, full electric appliances and systems, a front porch (to engage the public street), fiber-cement board lap siding (40 year warranty), a reflective metal roof (35 year warranty) 24” spacing for structural members (reducing thermal bridging by 25%), 9’ minimum interior ceiling height with vaulted living room ceiling, 9:12 roof pitch (to expedite the removal of water and snow from the roof and reflect vernacular historical roof slopes), whole house fan (attic exhaustion system), polyisocyanurate/fiberglass batt insulation system for walls, R-30 fiberglass batt for ceilings and floors, hardwood/ceramic tile floors, and 18-24” eaves.
