Build Your Own Home

December 15, 2012

The story behind these apartments is a bit interesting. They were constructed in the 1970s and, I think, 1980s by brigades of workers. Groups of workers were given building materials by the state and permitted to build their own homes. With many of the apartments, I was told, the first couple of floors were a little rough however by the time the brigade had reached the top floor they had become experts. The brigades then became a resource for helping other groups of workers construct buildings. Apparently the apartments to have are the ones on the top floor, not the bottom.
