I've been asked questions about Jamaican houses 'oh' so many times; What do they look like? Where can I find pictures? What are they made of? So here is the result!

jamaican houses

On Sunday, May 24th, I went on a mission to capture some of the houses in my birth parish, Westmoreland. I figure this is a classic list of typical Jamaican homes.

And while you'll notice some contemporary designs, the truth is Jamaican homes does suggest a little about our history. The types and varieties are many, but depicts primarily the African and European (particularly the English and Spanish)- especially with the older models.

Today's houses are built primarily with cement, sand, concrete blocks and steel, but there is still are large part of the population that use lumber and zinc roof. This is still the cheapest option.

Please bear in mind that this is just an attempt though, by no means I will ever be able to capture all the types. After all, I myself, although living here all my life, will never know all the varieties.

That said, I think this should be a good representation. These are raw, unadulterated photos. I will continue to add, of course!
