This small house design idea is a two-bedroom detached house with a total floor area of 42.00 square meters. The house exterior is inspired by the American traditional house or cabin, but the interior is deliberately crafted for the Philippine setting. The color and the wooden appearance lets you live close to nature thus affects positively on the residents’ well-being and longevity. It has a cross gable type of roofing which gives you an advantage in terms of the cost, water drainage, and ventilation.
The porch is very airy and functional. Because of its space, you can devise it as a mini veranda to spend your leisure. The interior has an open layout for the living, dining, and kitchen area to augment such limited space. In contrast to the exterior’s vibrant color, the interior uses neutral colors to facilitate comfort for the residents. Aside from being cozy, neutral colors let you decorate anything or anyway you want. Furniture is carefully organized to suit the residents’ needs for convenience. An exit door is also provisioned for backyard access and emergency purposes. The common toilet/bath is placed between the two bedrooms. It has a very comfortable setup and is elegantly decorated. The two bedrooms have an easeful interior as well. It lets you have your restful slumber. Besides, each bedroom has a small workstation provided to let you do your work-at-home tasks or other online activities. The windows installed contribute with sufficient ventilation and lighting thus save you energy or utilities.

Labor and Material Estimated Cost
The final build cost depends on the quality of the selected materials and where the building is located. There are two ways of estimating: detailed estimate and area method. We are using the area method since this is the fastest way without detailed drawing. By area method, just calculate the total floor area and multiply it from PHP 18,000 per square meter to PHP 25,000 per square meter. Thus, the house design estimation cost ranges from P756,000 – P1,050,000 (USD15,120 – USD21,000). This is just a rough estimation. It is recommended to ask for cost estimates in detail from an Architect, Engineer, or Contractor.
