Building A Cheap House In The Philippines

Building A Cheap House In The Philippines

I have read too many blogs where people have spent millions of pesos to build sub-standard house that ends up needing expensive maintenance. In my work, I see people with their hearts and budgets broken as they attempt to renovate or build a house. Quite often my advice comes post-disaster. So it is with this experience and after a lot of research that I started to build my own house in the Philippines five years ago. I kept the floor plan simple: three bedrooms, one bathroom, a lounge/family room, and a large eat-in kitchen with verandahs surrounding the entire house. The total area was 140 square metres. I built the house on a 100mm concrete slab with tied steel and concrete post-and-beam construction. The walls are rendered, 100mm-filled concrete blocks tied to the slab with steel and horizontal beam. This part of the construction was cost- and labour-intensive, but it will for itself with years of maintenance-free living. The roof is corrugated steel on a steel truss welded and tied to the slab with steel through concrete blocks. Material cost was 310,000 pesos. Labour cost of 80,000 pesos.
