Photographer's Note

These three structures here are considered as one house for one family. The blue structure is the place where they sleep, their bedroom. It is made of plywood on wood studs. It has no insulation. The windows are made of the same material. The roof is made of corrugated sheet metal.

The center structure that looks like a balcony is their social area, or living room. It is made of bamboo slats including the floor. The roof is made of nipa palm leaves. It is a very cool place because the breeze can go through all walls and through the floor. Nipa palm roof is approximately 60% cooler than metal.

The third structure on the left hand side, painted green is the kitchen and dining area. This structure is also made of bamboo with bamboo slats for siding.

The toilet is placed outside separate from these structures. It is just an outhouse with a deep hole dug into the ground. The outhouse is made of bamboo with an elevated bamboo floor. When the hole is halfway full they fill it up with earth and move the outhouse to another location.

Hopefully the pictures I will be posting after this will give you a glimpse of how these fishermen in this village live.
