What We Build

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 homeowners family's needs, but small enough to keep construction and maintenance costs down.
  • Decent. Habitat houses use quality, local building materials.
  • 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 a Habitat house.

Depending on the size and needs of each homeowner family, Habitat follows a prototype that makes efficient use of living space that functions well for the whole family.

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. 

Most Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln homes, depending on family size, have a living space between 1,000-1,300 sq. ft., homes have 2-4 bedrooms and 1-2 bathrooms. Whirlpool donates a range and refrigerator to every home. Valspar Paint donates the paint all of our Habitat homes. 

Please note we have a code of conduct during all of our programs. As a Christian organization, excessive foul language is prohibited. No drugs, alcohol or cigarette smoking.
