A solar nipa hut in the Philippines? That caught my attention on YouTube, and I thought I would give everyone a break today from the videos of gorgeous Filipinas and supermodel Elly Tran Ha. The nipa hut is being constructed on Daku island in the Philippines. For you retirees or other folks thinking of making a move to your own little slice of paradise, perhaps this video could provide you with some ideas on alternative housing. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law live in a nipa hut with their three children that was constructed several years ago, and are doing just fine.
