mud brick house

This single bedroom plus loft mud brick (adobe) house was built by an owner-builder in a forest quite near Pinpandoor. The house has electricity and telephone connected but collects rain water from the roof for drinking and kitchen use and from a small dam for garden use. Sewerage is disposed of by means of a septic tank from which water is directed to underground drainage lines. The lack of a water supply and connection to a sewerage system reduces annual costs considerably. The house faces north for effective solar heating and has a slow combustion heater for winter heating.
