Community Rebuilds will open the doors to two recently completed homes from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14.

Homeowners Maurice and Valencia Miller, and Jessica Lawley, staff, and interns invite members of the community to take a tour of the finished energy efficient homes, equipped with solar panels, adobe floors, and earthen plaster finishes. The homes are located at 466 McKay Place and 1240 Lance Ave., said Community Rebuilds in an email.

Community Rebuilds’ fall semester began on July 15, when 16 student interns from across the nation joined the community. These student interns lived in Moab for five months to learn how to build straw bale homes from foundation to finish.

The two homes are the three bedroom, two bath model. The home on McKay Place features siding on the exterior rather than the typical earthen plaster exterior.

Community Rebuilds has received overwhelming support from the Moab community, the student interns, and staff. Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate a healthy, affordable housing solution in Moab
