Native houses in Igbeagu-Izzi

A strong storm has destroyed the roof of this family-house

Native houses in Igbeagu-
Izzi, Ebonyi State, Nigeria
Termites attack after short time
new grassroofs
These Termites have their nest in the grassroof The grassroof of a native house has to be renewed every two or three years

This family decided to build a resistent new home in the same size with laterite blocks
In the dry season many hou-
ses are desroyed by bushfire
Houses in which nobody lives go to ruin in short time
