Explanations

The reason that I chose to buy the 20x20 barn for each family of 5 is because it is a lot more convenient. I have a lot of animals for the family and instead of buying a chicken coop for the chickens and roosters, then having to buy a fence so that the other animals don’t escape. Buying the barn was much easier because all of the animals that I bought can go in it.

I chose to put a bathroom inside of the house including a shower. I did this because I thought it would be more sanitary, whereas if i had a toilet and shower outside. Having them outside would attract a lot of bugs and could cause the family to get sick or catch something, and being that they live in a third world country they might not have the right medicine to treat it and they could die.

The 3 foot window with the screen was a good choice I think because, it lets in and gives them fresh air. Also because there is a screen which will keep out bugs when they are sleeping and eating. This will again prevent illnesses towards them from the bugs that are in their country.

I bought the outdoor fire pit with grill because I think it will be a lot more safe to have rather than having a stove inside the house. If something were to go wrong and there were to be a fire inside the house, it’s going to be a lot of money to fix the house, money they don’t have. Also if they have a fire pit outside, being that they live in a third world country it doesn’t rain that often. So they can use it whenever they need to.

I chose to buy running water because it's really convenient for the families and easily accessible. Although on well is shared among five families it is
okay…
