Photo Tour of Unstoppable NoMi Reclamation

2917 6th Street North, soon to be Owner Occupied
Photos and blog post by Hans

You may or may not know that Habitat for Humanity is coming to the Eco-Village for the 27th annual Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project. Among other cities, Minneapolis and St. Paul were selected to have several new homes built and older homes renovated. This project is so large that neighbors had to be notified of street closures in the neighborhood during the week of October 3-8. But Habitat for Humanity isn't the only thing to be excited about in these parts. A new owner moved into the Eco-Village last month and the exterior is almost finished on a new home that will be LEED and Health House certified.

Enough rambling... on to the pictures

419 30th Avenue North, Soon to be Owner Occupied

416 30th Avenue North, New Construction will soon be Owner Occupied

430 30th Avenue North, New Construction will soon be Owner Occupied

400 31st Avenue North, will be LEED and Health House certified.

Many thanks to Peter Teachout and his crew for all their hard work on this newly renovated Owner Occupied home in the Eco-Village

Thanks Hans,

Excellent write up and pictures. How do you know they will soon be owner occupied? Are all the units pre-sold?

One comment rejected which dissed Jimmy Carter at length. God bless Jimmy Carter, a great man.

All Twin Cities Habitat homes become owner-occupied. The families buying these homes have problably been identified.

Jimmy Carter is a fine man who got blamed for things beyond his control by that clown Reagan, and anyone who disses him is a jerkass. My dad is a longtime contributor to the Habitat For Humanity organization.

How does one go about owning one of these homes?

La Vie,

Not sure, but anything to get out from under the slumlordery of Keith Reitman would be a good move, if you ask me.

On another note: half a dozen or so comments from trolls rejected, all ripping on Jimmy Carter. I'm making a "Carter's visit to the EcoVillage" exception for what I'll publish. No way am I going to contribute to anything being a downer for his visit. Trolls can burn in hell.

Good Morning to all the Assholes who have ripped James Earl Carter.He is off somewhere now building a house for a family to call home.George junior is at home counting pink elephants in his bedroom while going through alcohol withdrawal.As a fellow recovering alcoholic who has over five years of sobriety and others out ther in the same BOAT, i here by ask that the Bush family apologize for your alcoholic family member who was given the keys to spaceship U.S.A and sent it to galaxies uncharted.Do not let me get started on RONNIE RAYGUN and all the fake lying crap that seems to have elevated him to legendary status.While his lovely Valium addicted wife ran the country in his second term.To all you silly fake fucks who followed and cheered and voted for that fraud i say kundingy pa-da-da.Bigtime where the sun don't shine.A shoutout to all know who you are and so do we.You racist fraudulent douche bags go ahead and tea bag your asses to the voting booth and vote for your tittilating teabag trollop or trick.None of you fake fucks could carry Jimmys' jockstrap.

Check out the Twin Cities Habitat site for more info on how to apply for a home.

It looks like a pretty long process but I'm sure it's worth it for those who are able to get a home.

Habitat also tries to sell to those from the neighborhood, so if you are a renter in Nomi looking for affordable homeownership option definitely check out TCHFH. Also come to the block party for the Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter Build.
