Habitat Home Features
Habitat builds single-family, three- to five-bedroom frame homes with approximately 1,100–1,500 square feet. Habitat homes are built on a concrete slab and feature siding or brick and a small front porch. A stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, and bedroom blinds are included. The three-bedroom home has two full baths, the four-bedroom home has two full baths, and the five-bedroom home has three full baths.
Habitat is an award-winning ENERGY STAR® builder, which means homeowners spend an average of $78 a month on utilities. Habitat homes are designed to have a positive impact on energy efficiency and environmental performance as well as providing healthy benefits and cost savings for the homeowner.
Habitat currently builds homes within all-Habitat communities, as well as lots in existing neighborhoods. Currently, Habitat is buidling homes in Park Preserve and in two south Nashville neighborhoods in the Antioch area. Most communities are governed by homeowners’ associations with restrictive covenants.
Habitat homes have a one-year warranty on heating, plumbing, wiring, and workmanship. After the one-year period, repairs on heating systems, plumbing and electrical systems are the responsibility of the homeowner(s). Normal wear and tear maintenance is the responsibility of the homeowner.
