This small house design idea is another skillion-type roofing model. This type of roof is also called a mono-pitched roof, wherein it is single-sloped that is not attached to the other roof surface. This design is perfect for people who want an easy-to-construct modern home. This kind of roofing is ideally right for warmer climates which has less rainfall. However, one can still build a shed-type house in the Philippines with the right choice of materials, quality construction methods, and excellent architecture.
This model is specially made for couples with no children. Thus, a small house is enough for practicality. The house uses a white color to enhance its methodical look, yet uncomplicated. This also has a minimalist concept to aid the residents with orderly living.
An airy entry porch is located at the frontal left side of the house with one step up. Passing through the main door, a nice and cozy living area that is well-furnished to aid the residents with their leisure. The dining area has a two-seater dining table and is placed to the center-left of the house. Next is the kitchen with a linear countertop placed parallel to the back wall of the house. It is deliberately organized to maximize the space for storage of all the utensils and food essentials. An exit door is located beside the kitchen for outdoor access and emergency purposes.
On the right side of the house, lies the comfort and sleep zone. A spacious bedroom is located at the frontal right of the house. It is well decorated with neutral colors to help with sleep and relaxation. A comfortable toilet and bath is located next to the bedroom and is adjacent to the exit door.
The house interior has an open layout for the living, dining, and kitchen area to maximize the small space for it to look big. Aside from that, the use of such a color combination enables it to have a welcoming, warm, and relaxing atmosphere.

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 13,000 per square meter to PHP 18,000 per square meter. Thus, the house design estimation cost ranges from PHP 325,000 – PHP 450,000(USD 6,500– 9,000). This is just a rough estimation. It is recommended to ask for cost estimates in detail from an Architect, Engineer, or Contractor.
