What we build

Simple, Decent, and Affordable Homes

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Dayton builds simple, decent, and affordable homes. Our homes are modest but meet the family's needs. We build 3 to 5 bedroom homes, depending on the family size. When necessary, our homes incorporate basic accessible design features, such as a zero-step entrance and wide passage doors and hallways. Houses built in partnership with families with disabilities include additional accessibility features as needed. Every home is build with the family in mind. Our homes are designed to fit in with the existing homes in the neighborhoods in which we build. All of our homes feature one thing that every Habitat child looks forward to: a safe yard to play in with their neighborhood friends. 

Energy Efficient Homes

In a further effort to ensure affordable housing, we have focused on building energy efficient homes. All of our new homes are ENERGY STAR certified, and we are making steady progress toward even higher levels of green certification. This commitment helps not only the environment, but it also helps create sustained energy savings for our partner families. Having a safe affordable home to live in means even more when it is created and maintained in a sustainable way. Some of the “green” features of our homes are:

  • Low-E Energy Efficient Windows
  • High Efficiency Furnace: 92% Efficient or Better
  • Engineered Joists/Floor System
  • Extensive Draft Sealing & Duct Sealing
  • Programmable Thermostats Energy
  • Efficient Lighting
  • Insulate attics to R-40; Walls R-19 with continuous R-5 sheathing
  • Advanced framing techniques to minimize waste

All these factors lead to a home that is affordable and comfortable for the homeowner.
