Katas ng Australia: A Filipino Engineer’s Beautiful Home
Like many Pinoys, James Mendoza came from a poor family. And so, growing up, he committed himself to studying hard, gaining a degree, and working abroad. He became an engineer, found a job in Australia, and saved money to build his very own dream home.
James’ house was built on a 17 square metre x 15.5 square metre area. Featuring a modern design, the 2-storey house contains two rooms on the first floor, and four rooms on the second floor. There’s a kitchen, dining area, living room, terrace, and even a mini basketball court!
Each room is tastefully designed and furnished with high quality items. The monochromatic tones provide a relaxing yet elegant atmosphere. The lighting and fixtures — along with the numerous glass windows and a glass staircase — exude great style and sophistication.
All in all, the house cost a whopping PHP 10 million to complete. A hefty sum, but definitely worth it, considering a house as big and as magnificent as this! At present, James is no longer working, but is currently managing his own business instead. Good for you, James!
