NJH has been witnessing quite a lot of changes. And the biggest need now is better residential facilities for staff. As I mentioned in many of my previous posts, the condition of most of our buildings are quite bad.
Leaking roofs, plaster falling off the walls and roof, dingy rooms etc. are quite common features of our homes. Rats, bandicoots and snakes keeping us company is quite an accepted feature. Not to mention about monkeys having a competition of breaking the asbestos roofing.
We've come to a stage that much of our future development can remain just a dream if we do not develop good residential facilities for our staff.
And as part of the same we are looking at good plans to construct a housing complex. I would prefer time tested plans which save space and construction costs.
I'm looking at each home measuring not more than 900 square feet. 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, 1 toilet and a kitchenette in addition to the living cum dining room.
The expected cost for a block of 8 units of 900 square feet homes each is about 7,200,000 INR (131,000 AUDs or USDs/ 103,000 Euros/ 88,000 GBPs).
Kindly remember this need in your prayers. Please do remember to refer us any good construction plans or sites.
The costs look astronomical . . . but these are minimum requirements for any average family.
If we get this done, 8 families can move into these new homes . . . Please do spread the word around.
