You may wonder what some house designs look like and if they look presentable to build as homes. In this article, you will get to see pictures of Kenya houses both in the rural and urban. Briefly, rural houses are mainly earth houses, which is the dominant house design found in the rural areas.

This will be due to different factors like rural-urban migration which leaves the rural with the least development. The government will concentrate mostly on developing the urban, expanding them more than they develop the rural.


Apartments like any other building are a single division of a house from a whole building. The whole building is set purposefully for business; therefore, it must look attractive and have features that will make the tenants stay for long. Such features may include swimming pools, clubhouses, tennis, and basketball courts among other things which are usually shared among the tenants.

They share many characteristics with apartments like having facilities that are shared among the owners of the units.
