Application & Plan Book

Habitat for Humanity house designs from around the country were collected to illustrate the application of the Pattern Book. On the following pages, the selected plans were transformed using a step-by-step design process and the patterns presented in this book. The original plan and elevation of each design is shown, followed by diagrams illustrating the design process.

These design transformations are followed by a collection of house designs submitted by various architects throughout the United States. The designs exemplify the patterns contained in this book while demonstrating their use at various scales of construction.

This Application section also includes a reference list of Material Manufacturers that provide materials compatible with this Pattern Book; a Glossary of Terms used in the Pattern Book; a checklist and guide for homeowners on maintaining their house; and a Resources list for further research and design guidance.
