And how it looked as of February 2014. The old cogon roof on the second floor facing the rice field has been replaced by iron sheets.
The slatted bamboo floor have been replaced with wood, from slabs of big mahogany trees that were harvested two months ago. Now, view from below, from another side of the house.
The extension on the left side of the second floor.
And the extension on the right side.
The slatted bamboo as flooring has been replaced by wood, about 1/3 x 4 inches, from mahogany slabs. Note new branches and leaves sprouting out of the trunk.
