Want a Live/Work Home of Your Own?

Habitat for Humanity Seattle - King County is piloting their first Work/Live home, and they are
looking for an entrepreneurial family to partner with them!

What is a Work/Live Home? A Work/Live home is an attached or free-standing building that
combines residential space with commercial or manufacturing space. Typically, the business is
on ground level and faces the street, while the upstairs is dedicated to living space; however
other design solutions can be used. Your business may or may not directly interact with the
public. For example, if you have an internet business and work from home, your “work” space
may simply be a designated office space.

submit a letter of interest with answers to six questions listed below, along with your name,
mailing address, email, and phone number.
