About Our Homes

Habitat homes are not custom-built homes. They are designed to be simple, decent and affordable.


Habitat Home FAQS:

  • The number of bedrooms of a home is determined by the size of the family, and children who are the same gender and within three years of age of one another share a bedroom.
  • Homes are built to accommodate any special needs of the family. For example, some homes are wheelchair accessible with a walk in shower instead of bath, wider doorways, etc.
  • Our homes are built with volunteer labor under the instruction of our construction manager, a licensed contractor.
  • Homes are built to be long-lasting and easily maintained, with floor plans designed with consideration of building process, economy of floor space, design variation, energy efficiency, site constraints, and floor space standards suggested by Habitat for Humanity International.
