(SPOT.ph) You know how a tree-house seemed like the coolest place to live when you were a kid? Well, one engineer in Tarlac managed to make it his grown-up reality, and he even threw a Batcave-style garage in the mix too. Summit Media's OG Channel got to visit the #aesthetic tiny home of Edgardo "Gbong" Suniga, Jr. Check out the cool space below!
The house is built around a living Acacia; civil engineer Suniga made sure not to harm the tree while building his home. And if you're wondering why there seems to be a mound under the triangular kubo-style home, it's because it hides a garage below. "Mayroon tayong concealed carpark here which I call na Batcave," says Suniga. "It is trimmed with pin lights and strip lights to add beauty do'n sa mismong sasakyang naka-park."
And aside from the thoroughly modern parking spot, the house is a mix of contemporary touches and traditional ones. Suniga was inspired by the kubo he himself grew up in, turning those memories into new ones for him and his son via the upated tree-house.
Outside, you can spot hanging gardens and lots of nets to chill on. The interior living space spans a compact 25 square meters, including a studio-bedroom, kitchenette, bathroom, and a loft bed. There's a dining spot outside in the breeze.
"Hindi ako masyadong gumastos dahil it's made of materials na ready-made, old materials sa aming bodega, tapos at the same time, napagsama-sama ko 'yong mga konsepto ng mga bahay na gusto ko," Suniga shares. Both materials and labor cost him around P250,000. ""For me, I believe it's not the cost that makes a house nice. It's the proper planning. You have to plan ahead, make sure mo lang those materials that you already have, and make them look good."
