Living in urban areas gives us an advantage in accessibility and sustainability compared to rural living. However, urban living poses a great problem on crowding, housing, and homelessness. People opt to rent a place to stay but this works against your finances in a long run and unfortunately, you cannot consider the place your own. If you own a small property in a city, then you can start investing in it and build your own home. Through this, you can lessen your financial burdens soon and somehow you can make this property work for you. In fulfillment of this, Arkix3d shows you a small house design idea that you would probably like.
This small house design has a total floor area of 15 square meters (3×5 meters, or 9.10 x 16.5 feet). This house model seems like a studio house but the bedroom is fully partitioned.
It is suitable for a person, a couple, or a small family of three. The exterior color combination compliments each other and it will give you an invigorating perspective. A shed type roofing is being used to customize the house, thus benefitting you with easy construction. Materials used are of a standard grade so that quality is met.
From this perspective, there is a flower box attached to the facade. It will provide you additional oxygenation from the air pollution in the urban area especially. There are three steps up to enter the house. Inside, is a 7.00 square meters kitchen and dining area combined. The living area is eliminated due to the limited space the property provides. The kitchen is located on the left side of the house. It is considerably compressed to allow more space for other food essentials to store. The toilet is located at the middle left side of the house with a 2.00 square meters area. On the backside, occupies the bedroom. It has a 6.00 square meters area. The interior has neutral colors that can stimulate rest, and could not interfere with decorations.

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 10,000 per square meter to PHP 18,000 per square meter. Thus, the house design estimation cost ranges from PHP 150,000 – PHP 270,000 (USD 3,000 – 5,400). This is just a rough estimation. It is recommended to ask for cost estimates in detail from an Architect, Engineer, or Contractor.
