Frederick housing project aims for affordable market

Among the newer developments is Maple Village, a 12-home subdivision in Frederick.
Developer Dave Doucette, who lives in Longmont and maintains offices in Frederick, so far has completed six of the tri-level homes and has two more under construction. Prices run around $109,900 for the 1,300-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bathroom homes.
"I feel we have a truly affordable product," Doucette said.
He noted that interior woodwork is oak, genuine tile is used in the kitchens and the lower levels of the remaining homes will be finished as part of the original price.
He achieves his margins by acting as builder and general contractor for the homes and by working with the same two-man crew to construct the homes.
"We˜ve become very efficient," Doucette said.
Most of the buyers are coming from the Boulder County area, following the influx of companies moving to Weld County.
"Many of them work for the companies that are coming into the business parks," Doucette said.
He first tested the affordable-housing market in Dacono 18 months ago, when he purchased some infill land next to existing town homes.
"We did 12 new units of 1,300 square feet, with garages, for around $84,500 apiece," Doucette said.
Doucette intends to continue working in the affordable-housing market. He˜s considering purchasing additional land in Frederick that could support approximately 80 homes.
Maple Village is being marketed by Ken Kinzig of Longmont˜s Kinkane Realty. Kinzig previously owned the land where Maple Village sitsBroomfield firm chooses Larimer
