The Colville Homes II project created 20 new two-, three- and four-bedroom single-family homes and was part of the Buttercup Lane Housing Development that includes seven additional homes, a community facility and a playground on the Colville Indian Reservation. The project offered more than beautiful homes and amenities — it provided money-saving, energy-efficient homes to its residents.
The green features of the homes include water conserving appliances and fixtures, Energy Star appliances, green roofing material, permeable walkways and driveways, passive solar design and solar-panel-ready units. These features earned the project an Evergreen Sustainable Development Standards (ESDS) certification.
The Colville Indian Housing Authority (CIHA) received a 2012 Charles L. Edson Tax Credit Excellence Award in the Rural Housing category for this project. The Affordable Housing Tax Credit Coalition (AHTCC) administers the awards, and Travois nominated CIHA for the honor.
