First, a suitable property for building a Habitat house is selected. Then, with the help of volunteers, businessmen, and 500 hours of "sweat equity" from Habit for Humanity homeowner, the process of building a modest, 1,050 square foot home is underway.
Total construction costs are approximately $30,000 per house—the sale price of each home—and homeowners take on a 20 year, no interest mortgage payable to Leland Habitat for Humanity, Inc. Habitat for Humanity promotes home ownership by individuals who take a part in providing themselves with a decent affordable place to live and celebrates families living in homes they can be proud of owning.
