building materials

This morning I don't have much time due to taking my children to school and then taking my mom to the market to look for fabric for curtains and to maybe look for a small carpet for their floor.
As I was thinking about putting a home together and all that it entails I started seeing some of these pictures and realized that quite possibly I have made things more difficult than they need to be.

It appears that these village folks have a simpler approach to making their homes.
The only exception is the big dirt mound. It is really a termite complex. The rest are materials for building a village hut. Either way, amazing isn't it how different we are in the world and what we consider as "making a house a home"? Always things to learn, always things to learn...


  1. So very true, Corrie! The more time I spend here, the mroe I realize that I really do not need most that I have. Less really is more! Tell your mom and dad that they need a blogspot as well! I would love to read what they have to say. Looking forward to seeing all of you!
