Habitat for Humanity of Hall County is dedicated to building decent and affordable homes. Our homes are: single family with three or four bedroom (depending on family size) and two baths. Homes are not only affordable to purchase, but also to maintain. We build energy effecient homes that typically have much lower power bills than homes built to standard residential building code.
Habitat promotes water conservation, energy efficiency, healthy indoor environments, and low impact development as part of our goal to be a responsible, sustainable, and affordable home builder. We recognize a strong link between affordable housing and green building. We implement a comprehensive approach to building that considers an integrated design process, local site improvements, water conservation, energy efficiency, materials selection, indoor air quality, and other health considerations, all while recognizing the impacts of building practices on the larger environment.
