Hawaii Affordable Housing Village Opens Its Doors

Aside

New residents get their keys while family looks on.

MARYSVILLE, WASHINGTON / April 5, 2018 – The first residents moving into the five-million-dollar modular village mark completion of the second affordable housing project completed in Washington state by Whitley Evergreen.

Kauhle Kamaile affordable housing village has welcomed their first families into homes built by Whitley Evergreen.

The affordable housing village is located in the town of Wainane on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.  The village was built using state-of-the art Modular Building techniques in Marysville, WA and the units were transported to the island aboard cargo ships.  This partnership with Hawaii Modular is the second affordable housing project completed by the partnership of independent companies.

The duplex units are a five-million-dollar village that will provide housing to sixteen families and features Americans With Disabilities Act accessibility features such as wider doors and ramps.  The accessibility features ensure every family that moves in will be able to open their doors to their Ohana (family) regardless of physical limitations.

In a recent television interview with Hawaii News Now, William Joshua, a resident, said “I’m blessed.  I don’t know what to say or what to do right now.  I could never imagine something like this would ever happen for me and my family, but it did.”

Whitley built more than just the modules as with a normal modular project, they also built the ramps and lanais (decks) in Washington.  This project highlights the ability of modular to meet the ever-changing needs of government for quickly built, high quality permanent and relocatable buildings.
