Habitat for Humanity builds houses around the world according to the same guiding principles:

  • Simple
    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.
  • Decent
    Habitat for Humanity uses quality, locally available building materials. Habitat home designs reflect the local climate and culture.
  • Affordable
    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.

Habitat houses in the United States and Canada are typically built using wood frame construction, Gypsum board interior walls, vinyl siding and asphalt shingle roofs.  U.S. and Canadian Habitat houses are modestly sized by North American standards. 

Our commitment to build with people in need readily extends to those with disabilities. When possible, Habitat houses incorporate basic accessible design features, such as a zero-step entrance and wide passage doors and hallways. Houses built in partnership with families with disabilities include additional accessibility features.

Our houses are simple, decent and affordable to low-income families around the world that are sustainable, energy-efficient and healthy.
