Check out this unique tiny house and beach escape in Camarines Sur

Equipped with solar panels and their very own deep well, this tiny house was planned to really stand on its own. Couple Antonette and Emmanuelle built the home in response to well, everything that went down at the start of the pandemic. We're sure you can relate. And what they ended up creating is something lasting, in more ways then one.

They bought the 470 square-meter beach property online and moved all the way from Manila to Camarines Sur. "The design of the house was inspired from a trailer truck," Emmanuelle tells Summit Media's OG Channel. "Since hindi nga namin maipasok 'yong trailer dito sa area, we have decided na we use concrete at tsaka hardwood 'saka bamboo kasi sila 'yong accessible dito sa area." 

Complete with a stunning bi-fold wall made out wood and bamboo to let the outside in, a kitchen with a brick oven, and even a fire pit outside, the house is definitely one of a kind.

The couple shares that the house—built in just around three months—cost somewhere between P1.5 million to P2 million. Aside from the location being difficult to reach, they explained that time was also a factor as they had to rush some things, raising costs.
