Philippine adult chat
We wanted a perch where we could have an unimpeded view of the mountains and surrounding rice fields.We wanted to reach up to the cool night time breezes.This makes a standing adult above the level of the top of our eight foot fence.
We wanted a big roof overhang to provide as much shade as possible. Our porch face north and so will be in the shade most of the day.
We wanted to have a second floor refuge from any flooding, especially after experiencing Typhoon Frank in Iloilo City.
I wanted an upstairs refuge from the family hubbub downstairs.
The building of our bahay kubo helped change our mind.
As is traditional, the floor of the bahay kubo is about one meter above grade.
