These mountainous houses located in southern Saudi Arabia are known for their strong core and great build.
The building materials are all natural, as such there aren’t any significant costs.
However, the building process is quite difficult because the smoothness of the process is governed by the roughness of the terrain and the rocks used for constructing the house.
Rocks are primarily used for a building’s structure and designing multiple floors.
The southern part of the kingdom is known to hold a large number of military fortresses in the area, this includes cities such as al-Baha and Aasir. The fortresses were used to monitor the village.
Each house differs in design and color from one area to another. This gives the long-abandoned homes an artistic touch.
