Since I'm wrapping up my time in the Middle East, here's some new house shots.
These are from a couple houses in the Old Rayyan township west of Doha.

This is the interior of an abandoned house off of al-Luqta street, in the old Rayyan area of Doha. Rest of Pictures behind cut )

As I said previously, I found three abandoned houses on June 3rd. Except #3 wasn't as abandoned as I thought. I shant post those pictures.

However, I got some lovely shots from #2. Since there's 12 total, I'll split them into two posts.

On to the house - and some greenery as well.......

I took some good shots of two abandoned houses in the Rayyan district of Doha, Qatar today.

The first house is the older adobe over brick or concrete construction. These usually have rope-bound poles for support, with a platted wood celing. It always strikes me as interesting how little out of place they would look in the US Southwest or even the desert parts of rural Mexico. I suspect the desert has it's own dictates on construction.

I have pictures of a second house I'll post tomorrow. Also I found an "abandoned house" that wasn't as abandoned as one may think, it had been turned into a de-facto labor camp for the various third and fourth worlders that get hired here cheaply for constuction and labour.
