About the Builder

Ravenhill Construction, Inc. began in 1978 in a shop designed and built by owner Peter Kilpatrick. The field stone foundation, timber frame style and hand split cedar shake roof anticipate the materials he will use in the future to build award winning homes.

Through the years Ravenhill has grown and matured to become one of the most successful construction companies in San Juan County. By taking on progressively more complex and challenging projects, the crew has gained the diverse skills necessary to welcome each new undertaking with great enthusiasm, confidence and insight.


About San Juan Community Home Trust

As a nonprofit organization the Home Trust can apply for grants and accept tax-deductible contributions from individuals, foundations and agencies that support home ownership.  With these funds, the Home Trust can subsidize the cost of land, infrastructure and construction of new homes.  Homebuyers must obtain a mortgage for the affordably priced home and also agree to limit the eventual resale price of the home to insure that it is perpetually (i.e., forever) affordable to working people.  The increase in resale price is restricted by a formula tied to the area median income, a statistic issued annually for each county by the federal housing agency, HUD.
