Build a Home Locally and Support Katrina Relief Efforts at the Same Time

Build a Home Locally and Support Katrina Relief Efforts at the Same Time

Home Patterns LLC

Our Goal - Over the next year, Home Patterns LLC hopes to release over 500 free plan sets to the affected areas. If we can market the same number of plans to others around the country, we will have raised over $125,000 for direct aid to people in need of housing. Help us reach this goal.

How You Can Help - Home Patterns will offer these same home plans to the rest of the country as well. To encourage participation, we have discounted the price of our home plans (around $750 - $950) to $495. Half of this money will be given directly to non-profit groups. The other half of the price will fund our own non-profit work to provide free home plans and other design services to affected communities. Local planners, if we can be of help to you, please let us know. Planners elsewhere please make our efforts known to your local builders who might need a bungalow plan that would support relief efforts. For more details, please see our website.

The Home Plans - We have evaluated our home plans and narrowed the field down to five of our finest plans. We have limited the number due to the foreseen demand and we wish to streamline our efforts so that we may reach as many folks as possible. We have included plans to reach many different needs and tastes, from 1300 SF to 1900 SF. In character, these plans reflect the Bungalow and Arts and Crafts tradition of our countries best pre-war neighborhoods. Inside, the plans have been updated for today's more informal lifestyles. Most of these plans were developed to fit into older neighborhoods, therefore they fit on narrow lots and work well with alleys and detached side garages. The plans can be viewed under the "Katrina Plans" link on the left panel of More plans may be added at a future date.
