Kah San Chako Haws

Kah San Chako Haws (‘East House’ in Chinook) is the Pacific Northwest’s first completed modular multi-family affordable housing project, and one of the first in the United States.

 

NAYA Family Center, a Native American social service non-profit organization, is the owner of the project.

 

The goal of Kah San Chako Haws was to set the stage for a new generation of affordable housing in Oregon and other states that reduces unit costs, reduces delivery time, increases quality,  improves unit design, is greener, and most importantly, has a positive impact on the number of affordable units built in the United States.

 

The completion of Kah San Chako Haws points towards a path for further improvements in affordable housing. This project was a significant first step. We believed, and Kah San Chako Haws demonstrates, that modular construction is a viable option to address cost, time, quality, unit design and sustainability in affordable housing.
