León Affordable Urban Housing Project

There were three house projects built with funding raised independently by ViviendasLeón. It was part of a pilot project to examine the methods, design, funding, credit and market for affordable housing in the León region. The houses established a safety standard of construction employing reinforced cement block design. There are one, two and three bedroom models, with one bath and a living/dining room. The kitchen is in the rear of the house, under a roof overhang, which is customary in the region. The total area of the house is approximately 60 sq meters.
