A well insulated and ventilated simple dwelling

Nando Aidos
Adobe, rammed earth or CEB (compressed earth block) construction. Metal roof for good protection from the rain. Raised foundation and floor level above ground level to reduce humidity and flooding. Insulation (bags of rice husks, for example) inside the roof structure. Air intake vents (two ideas) close to the ground and exhaust vents in the ceiling. Window shutters hinged on top to reduce sun and rain into the dwelling. #adobe #Africa #CEB #foundation #hut #insulation #nando #shutters
