what we build
Habitat homes around the world are built according to the same guiding principles:
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.
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.
Depending on the size and needs of each homeowner family, Muskegon Habitat builds new and/or rehabs an existing single family residence that follows a 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom design prototype that makes efficient use of living space and functions well for the whole family.
