"This is beautiful," he simply captioned the post.

It's clear the images show a big time lapse in construction, as the first depicts the home in its tedious beginning phases while the last pic displays the finished home in all its glory.

The beautiful new home features a front veranda for all those lazy Sundays drinking lemonade and big glass windows which certainly let the sunlight in.

Mostly positive reactions from social media users

While many social media users commended the man on the job well done, a few pessimistic people had concerns about the structure of the home.

Amazing aunt builds nephew a house after he was called homeless by peers

In more news on humble homes, Briefly News previously reported that in the Meru culture, a boy is not supposed to share a house with his parents after the initiation stage, especially if the house is small.

So, when Rosemary Murithi's nephew Brian Mutugi lost his mother in 2005 at a tender age, a big chunk of his dreams wafted away into thin air.

Things got worse when he got into high school and became a laughing stock of fellow students because he had nowhere to invite them for group discussion when it was his turn.

"Fellow students thought he was homeless and it affected his self-esteem, that is what made me decide to build him a house," Rosemary told Briefly News' Hillary Lisimba.

Located in Tharaka Nithi county, Baruo Village, the house has one bedroom, a sitting room, bedroom, toilet and bathroom and a spacious kitchen.

So far, only the ceiling, front veranda and plumbing remain undone, but plans are underway to finish them then the young man will hustle on his own to expand it.

"I am proud of myself and the boy too as he has never let me down. When he is home he does all the house chores. He is so respectful," she explained, justifying why the young man merited the house.

Apart from the structure itself, Rosemary bought curtains, a two seater sofa, a gas cooker and a few items for the bedroom.
