Following our successful housing competition in 2013, in January of 2014 members of the Building Trust International team and Habitat for Humanity Cambodia assessed the pilot house projects (the 3 winning designs from the competition) and discussed with the home partners/families on maintenance, up-keep and benefits of the innovative designs.
It was great to discuss the designs with the home families. The son from Courtyard House kindly told the team where the water level comes to in rainy season. He said ‘My home is very comfortable and I like it very much’
Inside Courtyard House BTi and H4H discuss with contractors where to increase bamboo weave to increase protection from rain.
It was great to meet Nay and Lisa who live in WET/DRY house they were playing outside and happily gave us a tour of their new home which doubles up as a shop.
Client design team meeting with the residents of WET/DRY house. They draw their new home for our review!
Children pose for us outside Open Embrace. We will be going back to visit the houses over the upcoming months and will be updating a few areas, such as adding extra bamboo panels and rain proofing further.
