UGANDA | Kampala | Real Muloodi News | With good land use, a small area can be have a sizable building. Well designed plans can even produce a multiple dwellings on the same small plot. Otherwise known as ‘multi-family dwellings’, these can yield much higher returns as an investment property. Alternatively, this can be an attractive option for an extended family who wants to be close together, but not necessarily living in the same house.

Ugandan company, DPRO Design, are experts when it comes to maximising the use of a small plot this way. They have produced this amazing design allowing you to construct two storeyed dwellings (houses/condos/maisonnettes), each with two bedrooms, a full bathroom, an open place livingroom, kitchen, dining area and up to two vehicle parking spaces, on a tiny 50X100ft (15 x 30 metre) plot. An additional guest toilet/ WC, laundry area and outdoor covered dining area is included.

In this example, there are four dwellings in total across two small plots:
