House at Pijao

This house in Pijao is of a construction type called "barhareque". Barhareque construction uses bamboo, mud and either bricks or tiles. You can see that a brick wall supporting the building has collapsed. The damaged building is being supported by bamboo poles, but it is unsafe to enter. This means that the owners were left homeless until the building could be repaired.
