HBA Member Spotlight - Consilium Design

Consilium Design is a landscape architecture, land planning and urban design firm performing award-winning work locally, nationally, and internationally. We don’t just do projects; we create communities, we build neighborhoods and beautiful living spaces, places for people to experience a sense of their surroundings and connect with the environment and one another.

We also provide a comprehensive, integrated scope of planning and design services to help our clientele meet the challenge of successful implementation of their development and community building plans.

At Consilium Design we believe compelling, sustainable design solutions must be contextual, adaptable, and temporal in nature. Our designs are meant to be lived in, not simply looked at. The ideal of place is more than a predetermined pattern of streets and trails or the skin of buildings. It emanates from the patterns of life and how the places we create influence the experiences and memories of people who live in them.

For more information, please visit: Consilium Design | Land Planning, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design

USDA Rural Development - Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Information

The USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) has new construction financing options that may be extremely beneficial to your company. Click here for more information.

Program Highlights:

  • Reduced risk for the homebuilder and the lender.  Since the loan is fully funded at closing, even before a shovel hits the dirt, homebuilders do not have to front their own capital or use their lines of credit, and this ensures the build will happen to completion.

If this is something you or someone in your company is interested in, and how these options can benefit you, please contact Shiela Raber at or at 541-801-2684.
