The virtual house
Habitat for Humanity reserves the right to close a virtual house and donate the donations made to the chosen project if it is not finished twelve months after its foundations were laid.  The initiator of this house will receive a notification a month before the upcoming deactivation, and can reactivate his or her house should he or she wish to do so. If more than half of the house that is to be deactivated is finished, the money donated so far will go to the project the house was built for. Should less than half of the house that is to be deactivated be finished, Habitat for Humanity will give the money donated so far where it is most needed. If the virtual house is finished (or if it is closed), the money will go to the project the house was built for. 

A virtual house is finished on www.buildwithme.org if a total of € 400 is donated. The price of a virtual house on www.buildwithme.org is not in correspondence with the prices of real houses. Habitat for Humanity works with local parties and materials for the building of houses. Therefore, real prices of a house can differ.
