a new house
My father's brother is building a house for his family. It is a four bedroom house made of concrete and steel. In fact, it actually looked like a steel building before concrete was poured on the foundations and the walls. He told me he is paying over a million pesos for the whole deal-design and construction. He had a little problem with payment because his company (he is a seafarer) has not paid his salary for four months until his co-workers complained about it. Last I heard though everything was good again. When we talked online he told me we are always welcome in his house and his wife knows to entertain his family when we visit. It is nice of him and his wife and I am sure he will have plenty of "visitors" once construction of his house is complete.
