Low Cost Bamboo Truss System — 1 Comment

  1. We toured some of these homes yesterday. They’re in a picturesque mountain area south of Kathmandu. My over all impression is quite favorable. Some of the houses have bamboo and mud plaster walls that look nice. One owner has already added on a bamboo covered porch in back for cooking, etc. The owners seemed very pleased to have houses instead of living in tents or shelters. In general, I see bamboo roofs as one viable option for Nepal. They’re especially well suited for remote villages where wood is not available.
