Starting to look like a home. This is the Front / Back of the house lol. I drew the plans a bit backward. 3 bed, 3 bath, with hip roof. Two tiny masters up front facing sea with sliding glass doors. Big porch thats 1.9m x 7.35m. The entrance of the house is in the middle. Left master mom, right master us. Entrance hall gives us a buffer zone . Both masters have a 6x10 CR. When the day comes mom is no longer around, rent out the room as part of the resort. Make it super lux inside, rent based on the view, seal off the door into the house.

... get permits and red tape done for a cheap little resort, depends on the finances left. 

How far back are your concrete structures from the high tide water line?  These days this would likely be one key factor in getting any DENR permissions.

20m from high tide, inspected and passed, next up is commercial permit for other part of the lot

Guess what this is...

In 4 days it will be one month construction, started with 5 workers and now up to 11. Lots of compliments, I'm looking forward to seeing it in person 1a8b2fda1199f740745b83fcf45ec6ae.jpg

Looks like 6" block. Local block isn't as strong as you'd like. You have a piece of (coco) lumber supported by 2-3 inches of block on the ends over a 48" gap.  Above that, maybe an inch of mortar. Any rebar in that? Then at least four courses (local term piles) above that. A few termites and/or an earthquake and you have rubble.  

Besides that, you know they fry buwad (dried fish) in the DK  right?  Do you want that smell passing into the house? 

And it's a security risk..

But it's up to you. If you like it that's what matters.

Will have a small sliding window, just for that reason, and lots of 10mm rebar. In regard to security risk, every door and window is possible access.
