Habitat for Humanity is committed to building simple, decent, and affordable houses that will meet the needs of the homeowners.  


Floor Plan
The size of a Habitat house is determined by the number of family members. Habitat provides a standard floor plan for each size house, which might be adapted to meet special needs of the lot or particular considerations of the family.  All adjustments to floor plans are minimal and there is no guarantee that Habitat can meet all the desires of the family.  An average floor plan for a three bedroom Habitat home is 1,100 square feet.

Customization
There are some customizable choices for your home. Every homeowner can choose at no cost:

Siding and exterior trim colors.
Countertop colors for kitchen.
Flooring (wood, ceramic tile, carpet and vinyl).


Green Homes
In a further effort to ensure affordable housing, we have focused on building energy efficient homes. All of our homes are Energy-Star certified, and we are making steady progress towards even higher levels of green certification. This commitment helps not only the environment, but it also helps create sustained energy savings for our partner families.
