Traditional three-story houses built of rammed earth in the hillside village of Shingkhey, Bhutan. Nalim and Namgay's house is center, top. Their neighbor (to the right) is building a new house for his family directly in front of the old one. Carpenters from another village build the wooden structures such as doorways, rafters, windows, and lintels. From coverage of revisit to Material World Project family in Bhutan, 2001.
