This article is one of the most concise and on point articulations of the current state of the housing crisis in the US. However, one thing that is not mentioned is the impact durability and energy efficiency has on residents. When "affordable housing" gets built, it tends to be less than top notch quality and scores quite poor on energy efficiency. These two factors have a direct impact on the total affordability of the home. Energy bills on a poorly insulated home can run $200 a month or more.
At indieDwell we are focused on building durable, energy efficient, healthy and sustainable homes as a solution to the affordable housing crisis.
