Having a simple native house is a dream for many families, especially those who do not have homes of their own but simply renting one. Even with a simple house, it makes them happy that they have a place they can truly call as their own.

John Paul Cortes Lamoste shares some photos of their home which truly surprised netizens. On the outside, it appears as a simple 1-story native house but when you get inside, the impressive modern interiors will truly amaze you.


While the exteriors look like your typical native house in the provinces, the interiors actually look like they are in a modern house.

Simple Native Exteriors

In the Philippines, you can typically see a lot of native houses, especially in the provinces. Often, the houses are made entirely of native materials, inside and out. But there are also many houses with mixed materials.

In this typical native house, concrete is used at the lower part to give the house a better, stronger foundation. But the upper part is made of native materials designed not just to make the house look nice but also to keep it cool even on the hottest summer days.

Impressive Modern Interiors

But this house is not like typical native homes in the country. The interiors make them appear like the house is modern, with white walls and white ceilings accented by blue trim and baseboards.

Although native bamboo furniture is used inside the house, you’ll surely still be impressed by how it looks on the inside. Stylish blue curtains brighten up the space while the glass windows definitely upgrade its look.

Nice Kitchen and Bedrooms

Although part of the open plan that includes the living room and dining area, the kitchen still looks nice and occupies the length of the wall opposite the main door. It has tiled kitchen counters and cloth to cover the cabinets below the sink.

The bathroom also features stylish blue tiles. While the toilet bowl is simple, the place still looks quite grand.

The two bedrooms of this simple native house also look fantastic. This house may be built for around Php300,000.
