Construct Announces Winner of Becket Lottery

Great Barrington, MA

Shasta Bona, current resident of Lee, is the winner of Construct’s Becket home lottery, which took place on April 5th, 2022. She and her family—partner Sean, who works in Pittsfield, and school-aged daughter—will move into the newly renovated house by the end of June. 

“We are excited to own our first home,” says Shasta, a licensed MSW in family support services in Great Barrington.

The very first affordable housing in the town of Becket, Construct rehabilitated the 1,344 square foot house with support from the Community Preservation Committee of Becket and a Small-Town Housing Initiative Grant.  

The property at 2442 Main Street is a 3-bedroom, 2-bath home on 2.9 beautiful rural acres, just three miles from town. With easy access to amenities—park, beach, library and elementary school—it is perfectly situated for work, school, and recreation.

The $250,000 house was offered for sale by lottery to homebuyers whose income is at 80% or less of the area’s median income.

Two similar projects are currently in the works in Lenox, MA.

For Berkshire County residents who meet the income eligibility requirements, Construct is now accepting applications for TWO three-bedroom, one-bath houses located at 8 & 10 Hynes Street in Lenox, MA for $254,000. Construct is administering the housing lottery for the Lenox Affordable Housing Trust, which is limited to homebuyers at 80% or less of area median income. Applications are due by 4 pm on April 25, 2022, and the lottery will be held on May 2nd.  

Please visit the Lenox Lottery page for more information about the lottery and how to apply. Applications and questions can be directed to, or call (413) 528-1985.

Applicants must be pre-approved for a mortgage before submitting their applications.

Construct is also working on the next receivership in Becket which will result in a brand new Cape.
