CYCLONE rehabilitation works by army engineers at Wainigadru Village in Tawake, Cakaudrove are progressing well.
Out of the five new homes planned to be built in the village, two have been completed.
They were opened by the Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama, on Tuesday.
District officer Saqani, Kalivati Rabuka said the house plan was the same as the standard rural housing units.
"The approximate cost for a single two-bedroom pine timber home is $13,000," he said in a Ministry of Information statement.
"Other villages in the district of Tawake that have already completed housing rehab construction include Yasawa, Wainiika and Vatu villages," said Mr Rabuka.
Wainigadru Village headman Bonefasio Driti said the people of Wainigadru were overwhelmed with the excellent construction work carried out in the village by army engineers.
"Every morning and afternoon the ladies in our village served tea to the army officers," he said.
"We treat them like our own and even helped them on occasions with their food supply stock.
"On behalf of the people of Wainigadru, I must commend the Prime Minister and the army engineers for assisting us with the five houses as part of the cyclone rehab program," said Mr Driti.
The statement said more than 30 soldiers from the army engineering section were carrying out housing rehab work at Wainigadru Village.
The rehabilitation work commenced early this year in response to the damage caused by Tropical Cyclone Evan.
The cyclone wreaked havoc in the northern and western parts of the country destroying houses, farms and causing infrastructural damage.
Relief agencies and foreign governments have pledged short and long-term aid to help rebuild the country.
