"Over time Homes for Good has developed more than 1600 units of affordable housing."
Homes for Good is a Lane County housing agency working primarily to help low-income residents with the logistics of affordable housing. At a higher level, it unites neighbors to get every Lane County resident who needs help into a home.
Recently, Chambers Construction helped renovate the old Eugene Public Library building into new office space for Homes for Good, which had outgrown its facility on Day Island Road. The new offices allow the organization to continue and expand its important work of raising awareness about the lack of affordable housing in Lane County, as well as finding housing for those in need.
Local residents who need affordable housing should consider Homes for Good their first stop on the path to finding housing that’s within reach. The organization also offers financial counseling resources, weatherization services that can reduce utility bills, maintenance support and other services for its residents.
Over time Homes for Good has developed more than 1600 units of affordable housing. Chambers Construction was the primary contractor on the recently completed Market District Commons project, a mixed-use project located in the vibrant Market District that will serve Lane County’s Veterans and Workforce with 50 units.
You may have read a story in the Register Guard about Jose Gutierrez, a veteran who recently moved into one of the Market District units. It’s stories like these that makes us thankful for our partnership with worthy organizations like Homes for Good, a community minded organization that strives to make a better life for those in our community.

Chambers Construction recently finished a complete remodel of the four story, 30,000 square foot Music School Wing of the Shedd. Almost all interior spaces were demolished and rebuilt for classroom and concert use with extreme emphasis placed on acoustic separation between classrooms and adjacent spaces.
Our Small Projects Division has also performed ongoing work at the Shedd. Some of its recent projects include installing a large screen at the Jaqua Hall Stage, building stage “wagons” that are then painted by artists and used as props, and reinforcing the ceiling structure and installing new lighting at the historic Jaqua Hall which was originally built in 1926 as the First Baptist Church.
