One of our neighbor in the Philippines built their house in the middle of the fields, it looks like a rest house which looks very refreshing during summer. Most of the materials they used are bamboo shoots, coconut leaves and lumber. It is a two story house with stairs to the second floor and what make their house more attractive is their beautiful flower garden on their backyard. The only problem is too much light during day time because it is built in an open place, the curtains are not enough when it is windy, I think they should use bamboo shade on their window. There are bamboo shades or commonly called bamboo blinds that are cheap and affordable that will match their entire decoration.
