What are Habitat houses like?
Simple, Decent and Affordable
Habitat for Humanity builds houses around the world according to the same guiding principles:
Habitat houses are modestly sized. They are large enough for the homeowner family’s needs, but small enough to keep construction and maintenance costs to a minimum.
Habitat for Humanity uses quality, locally available building materials. Habitat home designs reflect the local climate and culture.
The labor of volunteers and partner families, efficient building methods, modest house sizes and no-profit loans make it affordable for low-income families to purchase Habitat houses.
