Kambewa village:

 

This homestead was freshly plastered. The backyard was fenced in for "security" and the back contained the kitchen and pens for goats and chickens.

Mwasambo village:

 

These men were sawing off the ends of blue gum poles to be even and be ready for the roof structure. They noted that the front of the house did not face the road because "they did not want their neighbor's to see what they were doing".

Mwansambo village:

 

This structure was constructed of burnt bricks. The small weaved structure is the start of a pigeon coop.
