House ready for roof construction Suji, Manoj


Flat mud roofs are not suitable for houses in the mid-hills of Nepal as it is in the monsoon climate zone. This house is utilising gables to address this as well as to extend the roof height. 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’.
