I am an African, based in London, United Kingdom. In principle, we are interested in your concept.

What we have discovered is that when designers talk about low cost housing, they restrict themselves to houses that are suitable for emergency use in developed countries, or houses that are so small, they cannot sustain a proper family in a developing country on a continent like Africa.

can you describe the lay-out please? $7,500 (USD) is substantial for a 2-bedroom house without fittings and fixtures in Africa, where our target market is.

Look forward to your response.
