MaineHousing joined developers Sam Hight, Kara Wilbur and Brian Eng on May 28 for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 55 Weston Ave. in Madison.

The $5 million, 18-home affordable housing development was created with financing from the Rural Affordable Rental Housing Program, a state-funded subsidy program, that was refunded with another $10 million from the Maine Legislature and Gov. Janet Mills.

The development, which will open to tenants in June, was built using modular components from KBS Builders Inc., a modular home manufacturing company in Paris, Oxford County.

The project was managed by SJHight Construction Management and McKenney and Sons.

Subcontractors were KBS Builders, Travers Electric, Provencal Plumbing, DMO Landscaping, Bob's Cash Fuel, OpenLot IT, Maine Roof Solutions, Revision Energy, Fitzgeralds Foundation, HiTech Fire Protection and Woodhull Architects.

The development team was 55 Weston Avenue LLC, led by Hight, Wilbur and Eng.

It's the first phase of what's expected to be a total of 36 units on Weston Avenue, Hight said.
