Apply for Owner Builder Support
Adobe in Action supports owner builders with the planning and construction of their adobe homes and projects. We promote affordable (often mortgage-free) adobe home building and ownership through education and student-based field support.
Step 1: Decide if you qualify
To begin the process of applying for support for your project, ask yourself the following questions to make sure you qualify for assistance:
1. Are you an owner builder? (All potential project support recipients are required to obtain their own building permits.)
2. Have you completed (or are you currently enrolled in) our Certificate in Adobe Construction program? All owner builders we support are required to complete our Certificate in Adobe Construction program since that is the first level of owner builder support we offer. Register for a class today!
3. Does your owner builder project align with Adobe in Action's design and construction principles?

lot selection/purchasing advice
