Most U.S. and Canadian Habitat houses share these characteristics: Living space of about 1,000 square feet. One bathroom. Covered primary entrance. 3 doorways and 34 to allow wheelchair access.

Houses in other parts of the world. The houses around the world are mostly very different from one another. They take into consideration the climate, the environment, and what the weather is usually like. Papua New Guinea Due to heavy rains houses are build up off the ground to keep it dry.
