How do I qualify to build a house with Habitat?
Habitat homeowners qualify based on income, ability to pay, and willingness to partner. See What we Do for details.
What does a house cost?
This varies from person to person and depends on a few different factors, including your income, debt load, credit, and need. You only build as much house as you can afford, and work within your budget to meet your needs.
What if I’m limited in how much I can help with construction?
Although every new Homeowner is required to contribute 1000 hours of work over the course of the group build, we don’t expect, nor want, anyone to do this entirely themselves. You are encouraged to build a support team early on of people that are willing and ready to help you reach your total. No one will ever be expected to do something they are not comfortable with.
Do I need to know how to build a house?
Definitely not! Everything you will need to know to complete your build will be taught to you in a welcoming environment. Most of the Homeowners we’ve worked with in the past had no prior construction knowledge before beginning their build.

What is the Resale Store?
The Habitat for Humanity of Southwest Montana Resale Store works similar to a thrift store for hardware and home improvement equipment. It is a store that is open to the public. The store is also always looking for donations of new or gently used goods. For more information on this staple of the Habitat community, please check out there Facebook Page.
