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 a large part of the population that use lumber and zinc roof. This is because it 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 probably never ever know the multiple varieties of homes here.

That said, I think these, the ones I present here, are good representations of the homes of average Jamaicans.

Just bear in mind that these are raw, unadulterated photos I took with my phone while moving around. Of course, I will continue to add.

And, as I said before, these are just some of homes of average Jamaicans, we do have some that are a lot more elaborate, and yes, some a lot more humble as well, it depends a lot on where you go across the country.

So my question to you...
