This post features Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) and youtuber – Peng You, who were able to build two-storey house for his family in the Philippines from his savings while working abroad.
A dream come true for fellow OFW who endure being away from his family to provide better future, food on the table, and a roof over their heads.
The two-floor house is estimated to cost around 750,000 pesos. The cost includes house plans, materials, and labour. According to him, he managed to save the amount in the span of 3 years working as a production operator and part-time dorm cleaner in Taiwan.
The house has complete features, it has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living area, kitchen, dining area, sliding windows, tiled-floors, and a balcony. Later on, he added dirty kitchen.
He utilized floor area of 80 sqm which composed of 35 sqm per floor plus dirty kitchen. The house is designed by a Civil Engineer and was built by a contractor. It only took 3 months to build.
His future plans for his newly built house are to have a space for garage, window grills, and sturdy fence.
On his YouTube channel, Peng You shared two-part video of his home. The first video is all about the construction part, and the second video features the fully furnished house. He also shared an online store where he purchases affordable furniture and appliances.
I came across his VLOG because I usually watch YouTube videos of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) who were able to achieve their dreams. It can be about their dream jobs, businesses, ideal country to work in, and properties they have acquired such as a house.
I was inspired by what has happened to him. So, I am also sharing this to you readers. Let us all be inspired together and just like him, start fulfilling whatever our dreams may be.
What I like about his two videos is that as an OFW he forgoes short-term pleasure and focuses on his long-term goal which is to build a house. After 3 years that goal became a reality.
