Many families in Barbados and the Caribbean who live in chattel houses can give you entertaining stories of how they managed in such small spaces. Chattel houses built in the 17th and 18th centuries are described as modest dwellings. However, this was a vague description that did not address how innovative, efficient and effective these homes are and were. The proof of this lies in the creation of a home that provides shelter and safety for all members of the family.
