Habitat for Humanity Greater Peoria Area is committed to building simple, decent, and affordable houses that will meet the needs of our homeowners.
The size of a Habitat house is determined by the number of family members as well as the lot size. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Peoria Area provides a standard floor plan for each size house which might be adapted to meet special needs of the lot or particular considerations of the family. All adjustments to floor plans are minimal and there is no guarantee that Habitat can meet all the desires of the family. An average floor plan for a three bedroom Habitat home is 1,200 square feet.
In a further effort to ensure affordable housing, we have focused on building energy efficient homes. All of our homes are Energy-Star certified, and we are making steady progress towards 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.
