Abstract: 

The purpose of this study was to gather information on the phenomenon and process of single family house expansion. The work was initiated essentially as a problem setting exercise, recognizing that there are fundamental issues involved at various levels of enquiry. On the one hand lies the fundamental human endeavour of creating shelter. This is not absent at the household level whether the society be styled as primitive, developing or developed. On the other hand, at the social level, one recognizes that individual households in modern societies(such as that in which the present study was undertaken) are not entirely free to create shelter in any way they please.
