Yesterday in Duluth two new narrow homes were put up for sale by One Roof Community Housing, the new homes are meant for families that are below 80% of the area median income.

The 1,200-square-foot homes located at 1317 and 1319 99th Avenue West, are designed and built by Lagom Modular and are a new design that features a front entry and an open-concept kitchen/dining/living room. The homes are designed to fit on small 25-foot-wide lots, the Duluth City Council revised the zoning code in 2020 to allow for houses to have a smaller minimum width.

According to their website, One Roof Community Housing "mission and programs serve to make home a better place. That’s why we make it as easy as possible for people in Duluth and the surrounding communities to purchase, renovate, maintain, and keep a home as long as they like."

These homes are part of a land trust program, meaning that "One Roof maintains ownership of the land, which homeowners lease for a small fee. When homeowners move, they agree to pass on the benefits they received by selling their home below market price to another income-qualified buyer."
