Huts in Uganda

October 9, 2014


You hear about people coming to Africa to build houses, but at least in Uganda the house situation is pretty well covered. When you get further out, like we are now, then you may start to see some huts. The huts are actually pretty nice though. They first build a round brick structure and then seal the entire thing with mud. The roof is made of grasses tightly woven enough that rain does not come through. There are really only two major drawbacks. One is there is only a single opening, so there is no airflow. The other is the grass roof can become home for bugs and other small creatures.
