World Smallest House


This is one of the smallest house I ever saw in the Philippines. Home of the ethnic group Aeta in Pampanga. Aeta are good people in planting root-crops like variety of ginger, sweet potatoes, taro, cassava, vegetables & bananas. With the average height of 4' 11". This house can exactly fit a family of parents & a child capacity. The house is made up of 90 % cogon (talaib) grass, few small bamboo for frame, & plastic sheet for waterproofing. The photo I got is during rainy season. Next time I will post another during dry seaon. Have a great day.
