Let’s face it. Many Filipinos can’t really afford to buy multi-million houses, especially in cash. But there are lots of options for you to build your own home from scratch, especially if you already have a lot.

The type of house you build, how big it would be, and what you’ll need inside would largely depend on your budget, but most families could pick any of these best house designs that you can build for less than Php1 million.

Take note that the houses on this list all have 2 bedrooms and one shared/common bathroom. But they differ in design and space requirements; however, these plans can be modified, based on your needs and the availability of space in your lot.

1. House for 48 sq.m.

With a floor area of 48 sq.m., this small abode is perfect for small families. Its elegant design features a welcoming porch that also doubles as an outdoor hangout for the family.

You can have this home for a rough finished budget of around Php576,000 to Php672,000.

This house ideally sits on at least 120 sq.m lot space.

2. House for 52 sq.m.

Slightly bigger at 52 sq.m., this house also has an elegant entryway. French windows would complete this lovely design, with the lot requirement set at 110 sq.m. It can be yours for around Php728,000 (rough finished budget).
