The most popular form of modern house designs come from rural areas of Kenya. There are many mud houses known as lodge houses that have been built by the locals for local people as a temporary residence. These designs tend to have simple floors and no electricity or other amenities. This is because these houses were originally built for the locals to live off the land.

Most houses are constructed on a sloping mud plain. The mud is mixed with earth and tilled to create a type of cement. This process takes several days to complete. Then the mud is packed into containers and transported by trucks to different construction sites. Once at the site, the houses are placed on the ground and assembled according to the design of the owner.

Manmade Materials

Modern houses are usually built using polyethylene and other manmade materials. Polyethylene is an excellent choice for these types of houses because it is easy to assemble. There are also others that use cement blocks but using polyethylene ensures that modern homes are made to order and are durable. These blocks are lightweight but strong and if there are too many of them they can easily be assembled by hand.

There are many reasons why people choose modern house plans over more traditional ones. For one, the cost of constructing modern homes is less. Traditional housing takes a long time to construct. It’s not uncommon to spend years in order to have a functional home. The cost of materials such as building stone and brick is also expensive. If you compare the cost of a modern mud house with a traditional one, you’ll quickly see how much money can be saved.

Environmentally Friendly

Another advantage of modern house plans is that they are environmentally friendly. Modern technology allows homeowners to build mud houses from sustainable sources. There are no harmful chemicals used during the process of construction. There is also little waste produced during the construction of a modern mud house.
