The Build


What does a house consist of?

Before you arrive on site, a concrete slab and septic tank have been placed at the build site.
The home is a 12’ x 30’ wood frame structure. 360 sq. feet.

It consists of a bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, ramada (small covered patio)
Casa provides plumbing, electrical, insulation, and sheetrock for the homes.

Casa provides three windows in the build.
Casa provides one entrance door with a lock.
  
House has a concrete slab for a picnic table covered by a ramada.
During the week you will do carpentry, painting, wiring, plumbing, roofing, and a small amount of concrete work.

What does a house cost?

Basic cost of the house is $7200 US dollars.  ($7200 / 360 square feet)  $20 per square foot.
 
Extra cost:
Cook stove $80. (2 burner gas)
Beds $600. (average cost depending on size of families)
Picnic table $300. (1” welded steel frame construction)
 
How do we select a family for a home build?

Families request a home through Casa and are added to a waiting list.
Family members are required to have a current contract for the property from the local government. A Casa committee reviews the applications and completes a site visit.  Selection is based on need.

How is a home funded?

Mission teams are responsible for the funding of a home. Churches support teams and provide funds for a home.
Funds are sent in advance for purchase of materials and supplies.
