Habitat homes around the world are built 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 houses 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 strives to “build green”, with sustainable, energy-efficient housing that is, both, environmentally friendly and more cost-effective for low-income homeowners to maintain.
