Each house has a kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom with a toilet and a sink, a porch in front and behind the house. The roof is made of metal, wooden ceiling, exterior doors made of iron. Artesian wells, which will be excavated in coming months, and a hydraulic system to ensure efficient household water for domestic use and for the garden.
