Completed new house Suji, Manoj

Description

This house has been recently constructed, using reinforced concrete and corrugated iron sheets for roofing materials. Note that tin sheets have been used in the gable as the new building codes following the 2015 earthquake deemed masonry walls unsafe and illegal. Taken during the 1st phase of fieldwork conducted by the research team based at Social Science Baha in Kathmandu, Nepal, as part of the SSHRC Partnership Development Grant, ‘Expertise, Labour and Mobility in Nepal’s Post-Conflict, Post-Disaster Reconstruction’.
