Inexpensive House Design- Makao Homes

Jennifer Margell came up with this wonderful idea of creating these modular homes for the people in Nairobi, Kenya. Easy to put together and resistant to natural phenomena such as rain or wind, these items can be combined in order to create minimalist homes. This type of house does not require a great deal of resources and the materials used are recycled. These are prerogatives for more and more poor families in Africa to own have a roof over their heads and live in better conditions. If you are to take this idea further, these types of houses can be used for temporary base camps -in the army for example, or just as an addition to your current household. -via Yanko Design
