Cubo Modular Houses Made of Engineered Bamboo in the Philippines

Cubo has gained a lot of attention after its founder has been featured in mainstream media both local and abroad. The multi- awardee founder of Cubo Engr Earl Patrick Forlales, aims to solve the Philippines' housing problem by providing affordable modular houses. To achieve low construction costs, he uses bamboo, a widely available and renewable material in the Philippines, as his building material. Cubo treats and processes bamboo into engineered bamboo that is standardized, making it a more workable material than raw bamboo. Cubo then manufactures standard panels, which can then be assembled on-site by the Cubo team. The prefabricated modular construction system Cubo implements allow them to assemble a house in a matter of days. 

Four Unique Cave Houses

In the past prehistoric man used caves as shelter. They were dependent on these natural shelters before they knew how to build their own shelter. Nowadays we no longer live in caves, we build cozy houses with all the basic amenities needed to make life better. It is surprising to know that even in this day and age there are still those who choose to live in a cave. Unlike the prehistoric cave used by our ancestors, these cave houses have all the amenities of any modern home.   Utah Cave House Missouri Cave House.
