Housing costs shouldn’t exceed 30% of household income, but most Americans are house poor—shilling out more than 40 percent of their take home pay each month. The story is the same for renters and buyers.
Over the next 5 years, the opportunity to provide new, attainable housing for middle income households is about 1 million homes per year. Together, we can make a difference.
How can we think differently and provide housing solutions for the missing middle?
Join us November 12-13 in Denver for a live, interactive round table event, where we’ll dig into the issue from a production building and development perspective.
TOGETHER WE'LL EXPLORE:
PLACE—overcoming the hurdles of zoning, NIMBYism, land and regulatory costs
PRODUCT—thinking differently about households; home size, design and livability; customer relationships and financing
PRODUCTION—leveraging innovative processes, building products and materials, and construction methods to drive productivity and reduce waste
Learn about registration options, our meeting venue, hotel discounts, networking opportunities and travel.
Join us for an intensive, highly interactive, 1.5-day event focused on how to think about attainable housing for the missing middle in a production builder / developer environment.
