Although we have yet to build a proper house, we have so far built cabañas to lounge and dine in, concrete structures with plumbing, an outdoor kitchen, and walkways connecting all of them.
Artist/potter Ugu Bigyan from the neighboring town of Tiaong, Quezon (some thirty minutes away) designed and built the cabaña structure. I bought an old house which lumber we transported to San Celestino and Ugu used some of the old muláwin posts here. The furniture is a mix of mostly hand-me-downs and some teak pieces I've collected over time.
The roof is made of the biggest anaháw variety called harábas and had to be obtained from a 3-hectare anahaw farm to complete the requirement. It was interesting to see the leaves fresh and still green when delivered and even when it was being installed, then eventually dry and turn brown as weeks passed.
The terra-cotta tiles are from San Juan (Batangas), three towns southeast. The earthy and chalky texture adds to the rustic charm of the hut.
More walkways, both wooden and stone (two bottom photos), lead into more huts, gardens, and the farms beyond.
