February Updates: The Orting Veteran’s Village project comes to a close…

Carriage Houses Shop

Our shop is basically empty of projects for the first time in months! CHNW is taking a quick nap for the first two weeks of March because our dedicated crew has been working hard to complete the Orting Veterans Village project. It’s time for some well-deserved rest and relaxation!

The last four tiny homes for the Orting Veteran’s Village are being delivered this weekend. We built 35 tiny homes for the Orting Veteran’s Village as well as a Community Building. The village is expected to open soon and we are very excited for the veterans who will get to use the space.

The United Group Visited CHNW

The United Group recently came to visit CHNW and wrote this very kind article: 

We’ve got a missional aspect to our company, that we want to be involved in all aspects of affordable housing and providing basic shelter is a big part of our corporate mission,” Galley said. The contract under which this project was taking place, included multiple groups, and required strict recycling provisions.

That’s where The United Group came in, with their LEED and sustainability reporting that provides accurate numbers into what is recycled, it was the only company capable of meeting those standards. The importance of sustainability is a shared belief between the two. While Carriage Houses Northwest builds in a factory to reduce the amount of waste during the building process, The United Group is able to turn that waste into opportunity.
