Phase 1 of the OHP Pilot Program will include building three homes on two lots that have been acquired. They are located adjacent to S. Sterling St., behind St. Matthews United Methodist Church on Shady Rest Rd. OHP will build an app. 950 sq. ft. 3 bedroom 2 bath home, an app. 750 sq. ft. 2 bedroom 2 bath home, and an app. 600 sq. ft. 1 bedroom 1 bath home. The homes' styles will be traditional and will fit in nicely with the surrounding neighborhood.
OHP is already considering future phases which will include building more homes on lots and/or land that will need to be acquired. The success of each phase will lend itself to the following phases, allowing OHP to endure and prosper, thereby making a difference by "equipping families for success"!

We have broken ground!
Check out our progress through May 27th! The first video shows the cleared and graded site with footers poured and drying, awaiting the 44" high retaining wall on those two sides.
This next video shows construction experts installing the new-fangled foundation system, which makes for a better continuous pour foundation wall. The waterproofing and insulating properties of the Styrofoam and rigid plastic "concrete forms" will be a great benefit for these new homes!
