Karen-style bamboo house in Tanzania

It has been very instructive to spend the last few weeks with this two gentlemen. They are both specialized in building techniques in tropical climates, Mr Mngumi in Tanzania and Mr Tip in Thailand, and they are both also involved in research institutes for public health. Mr Tip has been invited to investigate the Tanzanian Bamboo as a building material and together with local carpenters build a Thai-Style (Karen-style) bamboo house here in Tanzania for local villagers.

Photos of the final house will be published soon.
