Affordable Housing

Explore our collection of Affordable Housing
featured on Lunchbox Architect.

Affordable housing is becoming an increasing issue. On Lunchbox Architect, one of our priorities is to feature homes that are affordable for their demographic. Obviously the whole concept of 'affordable' is subjective and geographically specific. In Lunchbox Architect's case, we try to feature homes that are low budget or low cost relative to other homes in the area. You won't see any multi-million dollar mansions here. Instead, you'll find well-designed, affordable homes.
