Hi Taunya, This looks like a fantastic development, very practical too.  Will the lot size be any larger than 5,000 sf or are all of the lots pretty much the same size?

Wanda, lots sizes are basically the same...

Looks like a great development Taunya, we need more socially responsible housing projects.  I would definitely support anything like this in my trading area.

Thanks for reading Chris. We are seeing more green development in the Bozeman area, and this is one of the first that is very affordable for first-time home buyers and such.
