Habitat houses around the world are built according to the same 2 guiding principles:
Habitat houses are large enough for the homeowner family's needs, but small enough to keep construction and maintenance costs to a minimum. Habitat for Humanity uses quality, locally-available building materials. Habitat house designs reflect the local climate and culture.
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.
