Pascua Yaqui Tribe Recognized for Building Earth-Friendly Home
This house, built by the Pascua Yaqui tribe in Tucson, Ariz. from environmentally-friendly EF Blocks, is for sale to tribal members and is the first of what may be 30 homes to follow made out of a material used by several other tribes in Arizona for homes and commercial buildings.
A home made out of energy-efficient building material on the Pascua Yaqui homeland in Tucson, Ariz. may be the start of something big.
The approximately 2,000 square feet home, framed by material called EF Block (EF is for Earth Friendly), is a demonstration project for the tribe, which wants to demonstrate it can build houses using its own housing employees and that it can boost homeownership for those that want to live on the reservation, by selling those houses to tribal members.
