Om mig
My name is Thomas and I am building a House in Bukoba. I use to travel down to the building site once a year in December. It is a Rock House with large boulders integrated into the design. The Kitchen is built on top of a 3*3*8 meter large stone diving two bedrooms, and then continuing down in the wine cellar. The house hase taken approximately 80 man years of work to build. The house is like a boy dream. I have been building on the house since November 2004. I have designed the house myself.
