Ghanaian builder, Brown, has set his eyes on building transportable houses that will help young people to own houses. In an interview with Build With Amoaa, he stated that the transportable homes are designed in a way that young people who do not have large sums of money to put up mansions can have these homes as an alternative, especially when they have jobs in major cities like Accra.
He added that the homes are also for people who do not want to live in specific cities anymore. Such people can put the houses on a truck and move them to their desired locations. It will give people the flexibility of moving around without feeling locked in a particular location.

Brown stated that the materials for the transportable homes comprise galvanized steel, fibre glass and other materials that make the building soundproof and fireproof. Brown says that he learned how to build the homes from watching YouTube videos over the course of three years.
The transportable houses come complete with electricity and water drainage systems that allow for sewage and wastewater to be collected and treated.
Watch the full interview Brown had about the transportable houses below.
The buildings do not have a foundation. They rest on galvanized steels that serve as the legs of the buildings. For the structures to be transported, the steel legs are removed so that the buildings become like vessels that can be placed on trucks.
Brown says that the price of a standard transportable home ranges from $9,000 to $15,000, depending on the peculiar specifications of the buyer.
A young Ghanaian graduate by the name of Yao Agbelengor was impressed by this great home innovation and told YEN.com.gh that:
This innovation will be revolutionary when it is produced on a commercial scale. I moved to Accra when I finished my first degree and had to abandon home for a dilapidated structure to start life with. If my house at my hometown were portable, I would have just relocated it and life would have been much easier. The government of Ghana has to look into this.
