For most parts of the Bangladesh, bamboo and mud are locally available material and have been used as building material for centuries and villages. Bamboo can be easily grown and is one of the cheapest construction materials. A good bamboo cut into strips has the tensile strength almost equal to about that of steel.

The combination of the bamboo and mud works better construction material and the construction of roof of the low cost housing is more efficient, heat proofing and Sustainable. It is provided extra space for keeping household materials. Even if the surface soil is unsuitable for wall building, there may be suitable mud beneath, or by adding stabilizers then mud may be made suitable.
The construction process of the roof is easy bamboo mud roof, mud is laying on the bamboo thick fencing. This technology is used on most rural house in Bangladesh. This technology reducing heat half of the summer season heat at the room of the bamboo mud roof.
