Types of Construction
New Home Construction
Habitat of Trenton has built over 86 simple, decent, affordable homes with low-income families in the local community. Our most recent home was sponsored by Bloomberg, and made possible by hundreds of dedicated volunteers. This was our first Energy-Star compliant home, which will save the homeowner thousands of dollars through the years. This was a three bedroom, two bathroom house with a basement and enclosed backyard with parking spaces.
Habitat of Trenton doesn't just build new...we help current homeowners, too!
While Habitat for Humanity has long been known for constructing new homes, we actually do much more than that. We partner with families who cannot afford important repairs, as well as work on buildings that are in need of a complete renovation. You can read more on these types of projects below:
Rehabilitated homes are those that need serious work to bring them back into living condition. They may need entire areas torn out and rebuilt. Most recently, we rehabilitated an old house to make it wheelchair friendly for a handicapped family.
Critical Home Repair:
Critical Home Repairs aim to help low-income homeowners restore their homes so they do not have to live in unsafe or unhealthy conditions. These repairs may include roof, wall, and floor repairs, building handcap ramps, and siding/trim replacement.
