Orange Splot LLC is a housing development company and general contractor with a mission to pioneer new models of community-oriented, affordable, green housing in Portland. We believe that one of the most important things we can do to minimize our ecological footprint is to live in less space with a community of neighbors, making it easy (and fun) to share resources.
Orange Splot LLC, creates small, functional and beautiful homes with interior and exterior common spaces. These communities are designed to foster interaction among residents and make it easy for neighbors to share resources and thereby live happier, simpler, less resource-intensive lives. Community members participate in the design of common spaces and the customization of their individual homes.
Although each Orange Splot development is unique, some common characteristics include:
- Salvaged, sustainably produced, and durable building materials
- Project locations where it’s easy to live car-free (or car-light)
- Affordability achieved by arranging multiple homes on the same lot and keeping them modest in size
- Preservation of trees and existing structures whenever possible
- Beautiful, locally-produced artwork
