Island Community Receives Modular Homes

A collaboration of nonprofits and an anonymous land donor are determined to maintain affordable housing on Maine’s Islesboro Island. BangorDailyNews informs us building new homes or renovating older ones on the island can prove costly in terms of transportation of materials. Islesboro Affordable Property (IAP) and Genesis Fund contracted with Pray’s Homes of Belfast to build two modular homes that were then hauled by barge to Islesboro. Rick Rogers, executive director of IAP says the goal is to develop properties that local people can afford, noting that many of the homes are summer getaways for wealthy out-of-staters. has learned current occupants of several of the affordable units include school employees, the captain of the island water taxi, and ferry workers. Says Rogers, himself a retiree and transplant, “We try to support those who are integral to running the island. We’re trying to maintain a certain socioeconomic segment.”
