“Sheridan Small Homes is a pilot project that aims to demonstrate ‘that it is economically feasible to build affordable housing to high sustainability standards and that people want to live in smaller homes,’ ONE Neighborhood Builders said in a written case study of the project.
‘I think we are so much more aware of climate change, and there is a false dichotomy between building sustainable housing or affordable housing,’ said Jennifer Hawkins, president and executive director of ONE Neighborhood Builders. ‘You can and should do both, especially because of the environmental justice issue. So often, low-income neighborhoods bear the burden of pollution and all the issues that come with environmental problems.'”
