Green House Homes are Coming: Following the Construction #1

Earlier this month (July 2011) I took pictures (see below) of the demolition at the site of the future Green House® Homes at Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community (VMRC). In a recent article in the Harrisonburg News-Record, VMRC Vice President for Support Living, Melissa Fortner, reminded readers that the goal is for these new homes is to blend in and look like any other homes in the neighborhood. “It’s going to be a neighborhood just like you or I might live in,” she commented.

I’ll be posting pictures from time to time to keep readers up-to-date on the project which is to be called Woodland Park. Check out the bottom of the main page of the VMRC site to watch a video of the community celebration marking the start of the demolition, including a short presentation by Ron Yoder, the President of the VMRC organization.

To discover more about the Green House Homes® go to the official site and request the DVD and/or guide-bookThe VMRC community is still raising money for the project.
