Building Sustainable Buildings

A young lady makes a roof using bamboo, rattan and rumbia leaves in Kg Terian, Penampang. The roof can withstand the heat and rain for 10 years or more, in condition the roof is fitted with the correct methods and calculations. Using this type of roof has many benefits for the indigenous peoples in Ulu Papar. It creates a comfortable and airy atmosphere in the building without the need for a fan or air-conditioner. Not only is it energy-saving, it does not cost much money.
