A Home of My Own! Program

In response to the current workforce housing crisis Development Services has designed three single family home plans that are available for anyone to use as plans to build their home within Yavapai County’s jurisdiction. The plans are available for use at no cost within Yavapai County's A Home of My Own Program.

*Yavapai County disclaims all liability for the use of the plans outside of Yavapai County's A Home of My Own! Program, including all requirements of that Program. Any such use is at the user's own risk.

How big are the homes?

The home plans include one, two and three bedroom designs.

How do I get started after I pick the plan I want?

What do I need to know?

Home owners are still responsible for financing their home and working with their contractor to ensure the home plans fit on their lot. Septic permit, geotechnical report and all other information for permitting is still required. Please review Building Safety’s A Home of My Own submittal requirements A Home of My Own submittal requirements(PDF, 233KB) for information specific to this program.
