a partnership with the Town of Bedford, Habitat for Humanity of
Greater Lowell has acquired nearly three acres of land and a historic
farmhouse located at 130 North Road in Bedford. HFHGL plans to renovate
the existing house, and build seven new affordable homes, all of
which will be designated for deserving, low-income families. To
date, this is the largest project HFHGL has ever undertaken.
In addition, it is the first HFHGL project to incorporate eco-friendly,
“green” building design and techniques. As part of HFHGL’s green
building initiative, the entire neighborhood is slated to undergo
certification under the
Leadership in Energy and Environmental
Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™.
LEED is the nationally accepted benchmark
for the design, construction, and operation of green buildings.

standards could increase the home’s energy efficiency by as much
as 40 percent and significantly decrease annual energy bills.
