Colorado housing community includes bamboo flooring A housing project in Telluride, Colorado, is aimed at providing prospective homebuyers with an affordable housing option, and the Telluride Daily Planet reports that the buildings also feature a number of attractive design elements as well.
According to the news source, there are 18 planned strucutres, both single family and duplexes, and most are furnished with skylights and decks that provide a welcoming feeling. Additionally, the abodes offer beautiful views on nearby Bear Creek and the San Miguel River.
"The interest, I think, is really high," Shirley Diaz, executive director of the San Miguel Regional Housing Authority told the news outlet. "I don't think we'll have problems finding buyers."
While many of the units contain similar features, the news provider reports that they all have a unique stamp on them. Along with an original charactersitic, each home is eco-friendly as well, with recycled-content carpets and bamboo flooring throughout their interior.
According to TLC.com, bamboo flooring is one of the most popular green materials when it comes to interior design. In addition to being durable and versatile, the material is harvested from the bamboo plant, which can quickly regenerate itself.
