The Healthy House is a 21st century shotgun house with a focus on fostering healthy living and community. It will advance the traditional family shotgun home by providing a model for both present and future living. The Healthy House will be a mixed-use building consisting of a farmstand, teaching kitchen, office, that promote the importance of a healthy community. It will be a contemporary interpretation of the traditional shotgun house that includes sustainable features such as passive solar design, abundant daylighting, natural ventilation, living roofs, and recycled building materials. The property will accommodate a local organization, Louisville Grows, dedicated to promoting urban agriculture and forestry. Healthy House will be located in the Portland neighborhood and is currently under construction.
