Album: Beach House on Bantayan Island Cebu Philippines
We are building a Bamboo Beach House, Nipa Hut style, but larger.

(it is easier to click on the first photo and then choose the next page option to the top right of the photo)

This is our new home that's under construction here in a small fishing village, "Barangay Baigad" on the small Island of Bantayan Island, only an hour or so boat trip from the mainland of Cebu here in the Philippines..

The house is far from complete, but we are living in it already. I will show you some photos of the beginnings of our new home here, and add more photos along the way of it to the end when it has been finished..

Its being built from local materials of Bamboo, Coconut Tree Lumber, and Nipa Roof (Coconut tree leaf) which is affordable and cool as it makes shade and does not soak up the heat like a Tin Roof, and the amakan wove bamboo wall siding, allows air to get in and keeps everything cool.

Cheep, Affordable, Low Cost Living!

Yeah I know, its not for everyone, but it makes for the basics needed.. dry from the rains and Typhoons.. warm from the winds from the sea, cool from the sun.

The House sits back from the white sand beach only about 100 feet, and from the inside view looking out the windows we have a clear view of the Ocean, and can see Virgin Island and also Hilantagaan Island off in the distance.

Most of the time there is a nice cool breeze from the sea so no fan is needed, the air is fresh and clean, clear sky's, clear waters, you can hear the waves of the sea, and its amazing how many stars you can see at night out here :)

No land line Telephones out here, but we do have a Wireless Internet Connection that's not the fastest but does work "most of the time" ;p

To me, the peace of mind of just getting away from the "Rat Race" is well worth the trade off in conveniences.

Sometimes less is more....
