The Habitat project site is located on the outskirts of San Francisco de Macoris, Dominican Republic. The project is called Mount Zion and consists or 43 housing units comprised of five single family houses, one duplex and nine two story fourplexs. Construction started in 2006 so by the time we arrived all of the single family houses, the duplex and four of the fourplexs were structurally completed. The individual living units range from 42 to 52 square meters each (444 to 534 square feet). They are concrete block construction and are designed to resist hurricanes and earthquakes.
