Watauga Habitat for Humanity's GreenWood Neighborhood

A Place to Build- Habitat's GreenWood Neighborhood


In the spring of 2011, we broke ground on the first of 20 homes that will be built in our  GreenWood neighborhood. Now with nearly seven years under our belts and with the first five families moved in to their new energy-efficient homes, we are proving that sustainable housing can and should be beautiful and affordable for all.



 GreenWood is an example of what’s possible in the green building industry, beautifully demonstrating that efficient, ecological building practices can ensure lasting affordability for our hardworking partner families. Through numerous community meetings about design and homeowner input sessions, we have honed our plans for the site and its structures, creating an inviting community that sits lightly on the land. Children can enjoy Harris Park and walk to neighboring Green Valley School.  There are plans in place for a Community Barn for residents to use.




Directions to our current project:
GreenWood: Turn left onto HWY 194 from US HWY 421 South at the Hardees red light at New Market Center. Travel approximately 5.5 miles to right on Big Hill Road. After approximately 150 yards, turn into Green Valley Elementary School. Take an immediate left into GreenWood Community and then the first left onto Woodrow Street.  We are working on the second home, 133 Woodrow St.
