  1. MANILA – An app to check if your house is earthquake-resilient is now downloadable for free via Google Play, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) announced on Thursday. The "How Safe Is My House?" app serves as self-check platform for earthquake safety of concrete hollow block (CHB) houses, suitable both for residential houses and one to two-storey CHB buildings. Phivolcs Director Renato Solidum Jr. said they did not spend anything for the development of the app, since it was developed by in-house staff. They only spent almost PHP1,000 for the one-ti
  2. Hi All...I just thought I'd post some of my thoughts and reasons for building my house in the Cebu provinces in the hope to show people(with a relatively small pension) that it is easily possible to build a quality and an affordable house or home in the Philippines without the cost being too excessive. My house isn't finished yet but my Filipina wife and I are now living happily in the new house. People build their own houses in the Phils for many reasons. Here are some of the reasons why I built my house in the Cebu provinces on the north side of Cebu island: * I only had a UK stat
  3. I just thought to offer up some ideas that I've used in my own current house build(still ongoing) in the northern provinces of Cebu. My ideas will be heavily biased towards those folks that have to rigorously budget while, at the same time, try and build the best quality house that they possibly can. But if you building a house in Cebu and money is no object then this post is probably not for you. For the sake of easier reading and look-up, I'm just going to present my ideas or tips as a simple list with quick explanations in note form. Be aware that in the current build of my house, I ha
  4. Has anybody installed glass and stainless steel balustrade? How much is supply and install per linear meter? Regards Rik
  5. I am not sure if this will be a good topic or not but it can be with some participation. I though of a idea for cheap roofing many years ago but never tried it but a while back I saw it done online. I think it is a great idea especially now somebody has done it. Enjoy this picture of alternative roofing. Regards Rik
  6. Has anybody on this forum used Epoxy Resin in their homes instead of tiles? I know what your thinking lol here comes Rik with another crazy brain idea hehehehe.
  7. First the bad news. WRONG COLOR but not sending them back. Well packaged in tarp then steel then surrounded in timber pallet. More pictures and coments to come as project continues.
  8. I'm an artist and part of what I do makes use of soft woods that can be chain-saw carved. Here in the USA, what really works well is California Redwood, followed by cedar, and then last choice most pines. Redwood is by far the best given the minimum grain and knots, and also here it is well-dried. Last time I was in Cebu I went to look at Central Lumber in the Topilo area... but they were closed for lunch. What do you think? Can I find this type of soft wood, or something close to it over there? I am also thinking there is probably zero kiln-dried wood so I will probably have to be more carefu
  9. As promised I am starting a a new topic on building a house in Philippines. I will not post everyday but as I have time. I will do my best to answer all your questions. This will take a while as this is the 3rd year of construction and I will go through every stage bit by bit. So please try not to ask questions about subjects not covered yet. It will be too confusing jumping ahead then back again. First we demolished the old house on the block. none of the structure was usable as it was of sub quality. We got some feedback from upset locals saying "why knock down a perfectly good house" I j
  10. Hi, I am from Davao and my husband is Spanish. We are planning to move in Cebu and build our own house. Can anyone recommend a good contractor/construction company? Someone reliable but not very expensive? Can someone give me an idea on how much it costs to build your own house in Cebu? Thanks
  11. A question for those who have brought steel decking for use with suspended slabs in Cebu before. Do they cut the steel decking to the required lengths or do they have set lengths in stock? Rik
  12. Hello everyone, I am looking for steel decking to pour my second floor slab on. Maybe one of you has searched out the best supplier already. I would need it shipped to Maasin city Southern Leyte. We could not make it in 2013 but will certainly go this year. I want my carpenter to lay the slab so I can start the walls when I get there. Thanks +*************
  13. HI people. I'm building and renovation company in London. Thinking about moving to Cebu as my wife in from there. I got 12 y of experience and big knowledge about any aspect of building. Do you guys think that is a good idea to live London and go To Cebu ? Just want your opinion or advice on that one Regards Thomas
  14. This is a good read for those designing their own house. (see link) Know Your House: Stair Design and Construction for a Safe Climb A stair is an integral part of the architecture in any home that has more than one level, even if there are just a few feet between levels. In a sense a stair is one of the most important pieces of architecture in a home. More often than not, a home's stair becomes a backdrop for many of life's significant events, including those high-school-prom and wedding-day photos. And as a day-to-day utilitarian item, a stair is a wonderful way to choreograph moveme
