    With the heat, chance of tsunamis, rising sea levels and typhoon danger, I don't know why anybody in their right mind would spend big money building next to the coast these days.

    I guess trendiness trumps sensibilities these days.

    always has done mate and selfishness
    I'd rather see people live in cities and leave beaches undeveloped anyway.

    Thats right, just a sprawl of mismatched houses, where beautiful beaches used to be.

    Here in Oz...well Western Oz anyway...you can't build a house on the beach. In fact, all the houses are at least 50 meters back, and usually more. In addition, the beaches belong to everyone, with a couple military exceptions...none of the beaches are built on - or private. Citizens can use them as they please for general recreation (and there are barbeques and playgrounds for them, all free access - except for some fishing restrictions here and there if the area is a reserve......Maybe the solons need a junket down here - to find out how to do it right....

    exactly that way

    Fully agree, that's exactly what is happening at our beachpark. The area near to the beach is only for recreational purpose for the people living there.
    There may be made no concrete building at a distance of 20 meter from the high tide line.
    The first house is on a distance of about 50 meter from the high tide line.
    Pitty that some people (not you !) feel the need to react without first asking for details as soon as they read "beach lot", "beachhouse" or " beachpark" .

    yeah some new info? anybody build some interesting houses, tbh I found the architecture in the Fillipines pretty awefull (a well I guess most places where ppl build new are). Like the traditional houses but they seem to be replaced very fast with hollow block stuff.

    hello Earl

    The project sounds great. What is the square meters of the house? I'm looking to build a new home. In Dumaguete or Cebu. I have looked but the houses seen at this point not very practical in there design or price. I built my own house in Mindanao find myself unhappy there. So i wish to start over on another island. Can I get the spec's on this house. I am very interested.

    regards
