Home, Inc. Davis Street project breaks ground

Home, Inc. broke ground yesterday on one of two new lots it’s developing at the end of West Davis Street. The affordable home was designed for a local family that has been on Home, Inc.’s waiting list for seven years.

Carrie and Aaron Campbell and their children Tristan, Raven and Mia will move into the 1,370-square-foot ranch next spring.

“We are excited, grateful and humbled,” said Carrie Campbell at the ceremony.

Once completed, the house will be the 16th permanently affordable dwelling that Home, Inc. has built or rehabbed since it was founded in 1998.

Home, Inc. raised $100,000 from local groups such as YSI and Antioch University Midwest and from several banks for the project. The federal Housing Assistance Council provided $10,000 in support for energy-efficient features in the home.

Local building Chuck Craybill will start construction this week, weather permitting.

Home, Inc. is still looking for families who may be interested in a home on the adjacent lot. Other pending Home, Inc. projects are a four-house development on Cemetery Street in partnership with the Village and a 33-unit apartment on the Barr property.
