Owning Home

March 19, 2016

If there is one thing I hate the most about our(Luo) culture, it is definitely our homes. Our traditional housing styles does not favor life people during bad weathers and have short duration of time. It has been like that for centuries now. That does tell

us that we have nothing new and we cannot improve our housing conditions. We have however borrowed and adopted many models from o ur role models, friends and allies and they seems to work out just well.

Problems: The only problems with this house types are their price tags in spite of all the good that comes with it. It costs hundreds of thousand times our model and there are not enough skills to do so perfectly as yet because of materials use.

Benefits: There are more than one reason to have this housing condition particularly smart houses. It is secured, provide security, durable, safe to live in, healthy, provide conditions to things like fridge, water, and better lighting and family life.

Costs: Depending on country and location of building house prices differs. On average and in an averagely modern and good town, prices ranges from $10,000 to $20,000 thousand to build such accommodations excluding home ware like washing machines, tables, fridge etc. On top of that, you might be required to pay about $2,000 to $5,000 for land and that is it. All in all, about $50,000 should build a house seen in the picture.

Acquiring that money: Borrow or work in a group of about four people if you can save about $5,000 each a year. You can work on a house a year till you have four houses for all the four of you.

Reducing costs: It is work of civil servants to see into it that housing is provided to people who cannot afford to build for themselves. Building apartments and many government rental accommodations could help solve shortage and reduce crimes in towns and cities. It also help in managing people and making a city vibrant to the locals.
