Typical building in the bush to not last too long. They only last about two to three years. We are searching for more permanent or semi-permanent building materials.
Lately, I have been discussing an adverse effect of using shipping containers as housing here in the US. I have argued that using shipping containers have created a shortage of shipping containers needed for shipping stuff to places like Congo.
If we had more containers maybe we use some of them for school classrooms. They would last forever. WOW, I may have to see how much it would cost to transporta container to the bush. Typical material handling equipment (MHE) can be replaced by hundreds of Congolese men.
Actually, I have seen a few containers in rural Congo. And I have wondered how they got there. They got there somehow.
