Traditional home with corrugated sheet roof Suji, Manoj


It is easier (re)roof traditional houses with corrugated sheets as they are convenient and quick to build with, although they make the house stuffy during the day and cold at night. Following the 2015 earthquake many houses chose to use corrugated sheets instead of traditional tiles due to that convenience. Taken during the 2nd 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’.
