New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity is committed to building simple, decent, and affordable houses. Though some homes may differ depending on where they are built, every home is built with safety and stability in mind.
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. An average floor plan for a three bedroom Habitat home is 1,100 square feet. NOAHH now has floor plans that include 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom and a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom.
There are some customizable choices for your home. Every homeowner can choose at no cost from our selections:
- Siding and exterior trim colors
- Counter top colors for kitchen and bathroom
- Cabinet colors (4 options)
- Flooring colors (all vinyl plank flooring)
- Appliance colors (black or white)
Where We Build
Currently, NOAHH is focusing on the Upper and Lower Ninth Ward. We are also starting work on Rising Oaks on the Westbank.
We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, age, marital status, sexual orientation, or sources of income.
