Nipa hut house

Many times my husband and I shared our thoughts about the time when we move to the Philippines and of course our future house there. We are planning to build a house when we get there, but where we live while the house is being built is one of the things we’ve considered. First we thought about renting a house or apartment to live in while waiting for the house to be finished, so we did some research on the cost to rent a house. We discovered that it is a little expensive to rent there, so we thought about another option which is we could build a native house or a nipa hut house for us to live temporarily because it would be inexpensive to build. ¬†We both like it this idea better rather than spend money without anything to show for it afterwards. Hope we don’t change our mind because I’d love to have a nipa hut house on our property.

    Hi we also travel back to Ph very often and in the past we stayed on resorts.

    It is truly very expensive to do that all the time so we did build 2 simple nipa house for ourselves and some guest.

    And we are very happy with it – it would save us alot of money.

    Here’s a post where I show the houses that we have built: http://www.mommawannabe.com/2008/12/back-to-basics/

    It’s our temporary accomodation too while our real house is still being built.
