Construction has started on a couple of homes in the latest phase of the Trojan subdivision, which is being developed by Solid Rock Developments.
Solid Rock co-owner Wendy Gustafson said interest is growing for their development. Seven lots have been sold for Phase 1 of the project, and four more have been optioned.
A total of 37 lots are available in Phase 1, Gustafson said. All are for single-family residential houses.
"We've got a couple basements dug there already, and as the weather dictates, we will move forward as we can," said Gustafson. "It's starting to look like a subdivision."
Weather conditions this winter haven't created a setback, she said. Temperatures have been cold, but there hasn't been a lot of snow.
The weather will determine how soon people are able to construct a house that would be ready for occupancy, she said.
Rock Solid is hopeful that Phase 2 of their work in Trojan can begin in the spring. There will be 23 single-family residential lots, and a three-and-a-half acre parcel of land that has been earmarked for condominiums for people who are at least 55 years of age.
Gustafson said they're considering options for the over-55 buildings, and that people have been offering their input on what should be constructed.
This is the first foray into residential developments for Rock Solid, which is owned by Gustafson, her husband Ben, and business partner Derek McWilliam.
"It's been a learning curve," said Wendy Gustafson. "It's been a challenge, but it's also been very rewarding. Because we're doing it in an area where we know a lot of people, we've had a lot of really great support."
Nothing has happened that has been a disappointment, she said.
