In recent years, tiny homes have become increasingly popular, and it's mainly due to their affordability. Previously, Real Living featured a couple who had built a 6sqm house in Cavite with only P280,000!

If you’re ~obsessed~ with this (practical) trend, you might want to check out this local modular housing solution called Cubo Modular

The company designs and constructs modular bamboo homes that are less expensive compared to traditionally built houses. "Modular homes are houses made away from the building site—typically in a factory setting,” explains CEO and Co-founder of Cubo Modular Earl Forlales."Those prefabricated components are then delivered to the site [for] assembly.”

Interestingly, these tiny houses can be set up in just four hours!

Home buyers can select their chosen Cubo unit on their website. Then, "we prepare your building site with the help of one of our Cubo partner builders. And while they are preparing your foundation, your septic tank, your water electricity lines, we’re already manufacturing your house here inside the factory,” explains Earl. "That drastically lessens the building timeline because the house and the foundation construction happen at the same time."

In an interview with Summit Media, Earl shares that they made it their mission to make sustainable, affordable, and dignified housing for low-income Filipinos because "everyone deserves to have a place that they can call their home.”

"Unfortunately, more than four million Filipino families—that’s roughly 20 million Filipinos—don’t have a place to call home at the end of the day. Wala silang inuuwian,” he points out. 

Almost like an upgraded bahay kubo, Cubo’s homes have a modern design with clean, minimalist interiors.
