Electrical systemAn interesting part : the poles may also contain a tube on the inside and a box at a certain height for the house’s electrical system. The box can contain a set of power plugs or a switch. The electrical wires will come out at the top but will be hidden by ceiling panels.
Floors and wallsThe house is initially built directly on the earth, so that channels can be dug for the plumbing to the bathroom and the kitchen. After that a cemented or concrete floor is added, with optional (I guess) tiles. The roof consists of a galvanized steel frame and a metal plating, and in most cases (I guess) there is a septic tank since there are no sours in the country side. The electrical grid extends into virtual all roads that we have traveled so far and so does the water supply.
Fast construction and happy constructorsIt takes a crew of three people about two to three weeks to put a house of 45 square meters together. We regularly visited the building site to see and document the progress. Once they knew how we knew the owner of the new house, the builders (no female builders in sight) were happy to show us around and enthusiastically said goodbye when they passed us on their way back home. They had stayed in the neighborhood during the weeks and their pick-up truck was filled with their tools and mattresses.
