A woman has shared her journey of building a home in the rural areas of the Eastern Cape, South Africa.

@MamaDee Builds a House shared photos of the unfinished home on Facebook. She is now just in her fourth year of building the home.

She said she's taking so long to build it because, most of the time, she is out of the country and only gets to continue with the building process when she's back. She added that money depletion also plays a role.
