New Habitat House

Our 2018 Home

This three-bedroom, 1 ½ Bathroom, 1200 Ft2 house will also have a full basement for storage and be Certified Passive, 5 Star energy efficient. The design ensures that the home has a very low carbon footprint and requires minimal heating costs and maintenance.

While Habitat most commonly builds ranch style houses, this two-story home will be built on a 4000 ft2 lot consistent in design with other homes in this family friendly neighborhood.

Habitat for Humanity screens potential owners to ensure their ability and willingness to take on the responsibility for a mortgage and home ownership. They are required to contribute at least 400 hours of work to help build the house. Habitat for Humanity will hold the 0% mortgage and the proceeds from payments go back into building additional homes.

Habitat home owners must meet three criteria:

The home will be built relying primarily on donated labor, local donations and materials purchased from our local community. Lamoille Habitat for Humanity is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit and all financial donations and donations of materials are tax exempt.

How you can help:

Lamoille Habitat for Humanity has several open Board/Committee positions available.

If you would like to use your professional skills to help your community, we would love to hear from you.

Open positions include:

Treasurer - Duties Include but are not limited to: bank account maintenance, financial transaction oversight, budgeting, and report generation.

Family Selection Committee - We are looking for a Chair as well as 1-2 other committee members. The Family Selection Committee works to carry out the board's vision by defining for the community the population in need of decent, affordable housing, and by developing processes and policies for selecting those in greatest need. Once the application process has been approved, this group will work with families who have applied, making sure that the applicant families meet the established criteria. The Family Selection Committee finds joy in making homeownership, a seemingly impossible dream for many applicant families, a reality.

Building Committee - We are looking for a chair as well as 2-3 people for this committee. The Building Committee works to define the type of construction that best fits the needs of the local community and Habitat's goals. The committee proposes guidelines to the Board for the type of construction work that the affiliate will do, dealing specifically with the house design criteria, materials, plans, energy-efficiency and cost estimates. In addition, the chair will oversee the construction process by delegating work to contractors and overseeing volunteers.
