Native House Design Bamboo Philippines – Over the years, bahay kubo or nipa hut has become a symbol of Filipino culture and tradition. It is also an ideal choice for homeowners because it is warm, inviting, and reminds one of the simpler days of passing. These are the things the Calma-Lazaros family likes about their own bamboo house. Isolina Calma decided to build a bamboo house on a 800-square-meter land within the University of the Philippines Los Banos (UPLB) campus in 1951. Isolina’s creativity and hard work produced a comfortable home where she lives with her husband and UPLB professor. Valeriano Calma and her eight children. One of their children, Josephine, now lives in this house. In addition to the 20 Josephine grandchildren, the University’s guests and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) also frequented the venue. We built a bamboo guest house “bahay kubo”. We plan to build our conventional concrete house in early 2017.
Native House Design Bamboo Philippines. The plan is almost complete. More on that later. We decided to build one of the beautiful residents’ homes, a “bahay kubo” as a first step. We chose a photo on a Panay Island to guide local workers as we wanted. The photo comes from the beautiful book “Folk Architecture”, published by GCF Books, Quezon City, 1989. This book not only has hundreds of photos of bahos bosses and other Filipino architecture, but also measures many of them. Our reason for building this now is that we can use the building as a “barracks” for our workers from Iloilo City when they work at our house. Chances are we will use the Iloilo City overseer and the same crew members as building our fences. We want to give them better accommodation than they have for the fence project. They will stay in place from Monday to Saturday pay day. Saturday night they took a jeepney to the town of Iloilo to meet with their families and pay their salaries – or most – to their families. So they spend five nights per week on the site. Once the house project is over, bahay kubo will be used as a very beautiful guest house. Bahay Kubo sized 23 ‘x 12’ including terrace. We decided to build using four corners of concrete or columns that would extend to the top plate. The column contains four 10mm reinforcing bars that extend over the top of the column and which will be bent over the top plate to hold the roof structure in order not to be fascinated. The column will be one part of the termite structure that can not be eaten! The rest of the building will be built entirely of bamboo and coconut wood (coconut). The roof is nipa – leaves of palm leaves. Native House Design Bamboo Philippines
