The Housing Problem: A Struggle Faced by Small Communities

In countless small communities, a pressing issue looms large: the housing shortage. Families find themselves stranded, caught in a web of limited options. These communities, once vibrant and close-knit, now struggle to compete within the larger regional landscape.
Welcome to The Unfinished House: Where Dreams Take Shape!
Are you tired of the housing market chaos? The struggle is real, but you have options!

Why Choose the Unfinished House?

Affordability by Design: Affordable housing isn’t just a dream; it’s a blueprint. Our homes are meticulously crafted based on specific criteria and budgets. Say goodbye to overpriced options!
Defiance Meets Innovation: The Unfinished House emerged from a rebellious spirit. A couple of years ago, we decided to challenge the status quo. We’re not just builders; we’re visionaries who believe in doing things differently. Our structures defy convention, and our ideas reshape the skyline.
Fixing the Broken: In southeastern Kansas, the local rural housing markets are virtually nonexistent. Existing inventories fall short, leaving communities without sufficient options. But we saw an opportunity to make a difference. The Unfinished House is more than a remedy; it’s a beacon of hope for those seeking predictable and stable options for rebuilding housing. We’re here to provide economic development that matters.
Crafting Niche Homes: Cookie-cutter homes won’t cut it for us. That’s why we designed a unique yet familiar structural system. Step inside our barn-inspired micro-loft, and you’ll discover sophisticated residences tailored to diverse demographics. Whether you’re a young professional, a growing family, or an empty nester, we’ve got you covered.
Unlock your future with The Unfinished House! Visit us today and experience housing reinvented. Your dream home awaits.

NEW HOMES BUILT TO ORDER BASED ON CRITERIA AND BUDGET

 

Many rural properties in our region have been abandoned or neglected for years, creating a gap in the housing market and a loss of potential income for the owners. Our shelter initiative aims to address this issue by partnering with local authorities, community organizations and property owners to revitalize these forgotten infill properties and transform them into affordable and sustainable housing units. By doing so, we hope to create more opportunities for low-income families, seniors, and people with disabilities to access safe and dignified shelters, while also preserving the rural character and heritage of our area. Our initiative will also provide training and support for property owners who want to improve their skills and knowledge of property management, maintenance, and renovation. We believe that building capacity with forgotten infill rural properties is fundamental to creating a sense of prosperity and pride in a community.
