Community Rebuilds invites the public to see their three newest homes, according to the non-profit’s Claire Spaulding. The new owners of the 23rd, 24th, and 25th residences will open their homes to the public Wednesday, June 26, from 3 to 7 p.m.

The building sites are at 507 and 511 Locust Ln,, and 1177 La Sal Ave., in Moab.

“We welcome you to feel their earthen plasters, walk on their adobe floors, learn about their solar pv systems, and stay cool in the summer heat thanks to the power of straw insulation,” said Spaulding. Instructors, students and homeowners will be available to answer questions.
