Build Now is a non-profit organization located in New Orleans, Louisiana, that works with clients whose homes were destroyed as a result of Hurricane Katrina to build new homes on their property.[1] Build Now was founded by New Orleans native William Monaghan and is now directed by his daughter Tess Monaghan.[2] Build Now is a licensed and insured residential contractor, and constructs site-built, elevated houses that reflect the style and quality of traditional New Orleans architecture.[3] Since 2008, Build Now has built new homes for nearly a dozen New Orleans families, with 7 houses currently under construction around the city. Build Now moved their first resident home in January 2009 and have moved several other families back home since.[4] Hundreds of additional families have benefitted from the organization s educational programs on topics such as [5] how to obtain the money you need to elevate your home, how to improve your credit score and qualify for a loan, and how to improve the indoor air quality of your home.[6]

Build Now offers 14 different house plans that range in price from $105,000 to $165,000.[7] The designs mix traditional New Orleans architecture with basic green features such as energy-efficient wall construction, heavy-duty roof insulation and large windows to reduce reliance on electric lights.
