The City of Orland had been searching for a solution to the issues presented at the dilapidated 13 room Orlanda Inn for many years. Utilizing Project Homekey funds from the State of California, Habitat for Humanity Yuba/Sutter partnered with Modern Building and proposed a design/build solution to replace it with 33 new units of permanent, affordable housing for people in Glenn County in desperate need of a place to live. The city was very pleased to see the structure removed, the surrounding area cleaned up, and the site developed with housing for the most vulnerable population providing purpose and empowerment to the overall community.
The complex consists of two 2-story buildings containing 14 handicapped accessible studio units, 14 adaptable studio units, and four handicapped accessible two-bedroom units. The complex also boasts a large meeting room with multiple training rooms to allow Habitat for Humanity to conduct their programs for the tenants. These slab-on-grade, wood framed buildings, were topped with composition roofs and fiber-cement siding to provide a great, long-lasting appearance.
