Wood is the foundation of the traditional Filipino home. This material is abundant in our country and we have highly skilled carpenters who can craft the most beautiful homes. With eco-living becoming a popular lifestyle alternative nowadays, it's about time we not just consider but prioritize wood in building our homes. Today, we'll show you a house that can inspire you to do just that. 

The benefits of wood

Wood is perhaps the most poetic material you can use in building your home. It is a work of art. It's environment friendly. It's strong and durable. What other material can give you a sense of warmth and coziness?

Traditional home

This house embodies the traditional home Filipinos are familiar with. Simple, classic, understated. The wooden fence also adds the suburb charm that we long for. 

Natural light

A common feature in a Filipino home is the availability of natural light inside the house. We just love opening up our windows to let the sunlight in. And you can definitely do that in this house!

Wooden walls

The dark colored wood in the exterior is contrasted with the lighter shade in the interior. This makes the room feel more calm and relaxing.

Smart storage

The beauty of wood is that it allows you to stretch your creativity. The rooms looks more neat with smart storage solutions like this.
