Westernized bamboo hut.

Recommended Posts

greetings! I found a question on a locked post if it was possiable to make a local hut that was acceptiable to western people. This is what i built after noting the locals knew how to be comfortable here befor adopting western ideas. It is amocan over treated hardwood, foam/foil insulation to keep radiant afternood heat and rain out, (amoccan is NOT waterproof with wind blowing, and paneled with plywood. I trimed it out with copper boat nails to avoid rust stains, and varnished amoccan. it is a nice cool rest house, the design is expandable, a simple fan is cold at night. It cost about $3000 in 2009.

Hey Roger. Looks great!

Was that $3,000 including the foundation? Or foundation was additional?

Cheers!

Looks very nice. Have you had any problems with the amacan/insulation/plywood?

 

I've always used a single layer of amakan so there is no space for the bugs to hide in.

 

Did you paint the roof? I notice that you didn't insulate it. Is it shaded?

Greetings! I lived her for seven years in Mactan. If you leave it out, it is gone sometimes. (if he wanted to keep it, it would be locked up) just like the states. DO NOT display your treasure. High cement walls and barbed wire are an invitation to see what he is hiding. Get along with, and help your neighbors, and they will look after you as one of there own.

Also, I got a guardian who watches over me. Get to know him, and you will be suprised how quick the enemy disapears, then you can live where you want.

It IS supposed to have insulation, and a ceiling, just havent got around to it. The YELLOW paint on the roof is a very good color to reflect the heat. I should have used automotive paint, last way longer. I used Wood Shild on all wood and amocan items. You need to varnish the amocan to keep it looking good. It will last over 20 years if kept dry.

The foundation is included.

If I can find a way, I will post the work and materials list. It is too big to put up here.

I agree 100% about getting along (and making friends) with neighbors and not displaying treasure (or even anything that could be construed as treasure). Good neighbors are your first defense against the bad guys. As for high walls, that is just one part of security.. Motion sensors and outdoor lighting along with barking dogs and secure doors and windows are also important. As for security, take your cues from your neighbors. If they have high walls and security measures, then you probably should have them too.

 

Also, I got a guardian who watches over me. Get to know him, and you will be suprised how quick the enemy disapears, then you can live where you want.

 

Tell us more about this "guardian" of yours. What are you talking about? The local Don?

 

BTW, that's a cute little cabana. Have you had any problem with water seeping up under the walls when it rains along with windy conditions? I had a shed back in the US with similar construction (built on a concrete pad that extended past the walls), and water seepage was a real problem.

either i am going blind or that post doesnt even exist ! Is it from some other thread ? If you cross reference things it would be handy to link them.

 

Since you are a supermod i assume that you are not commenting on a deleted post - since you would be aware that it had been deleted
