  • On social media, the tiny house movement has gained traction, with many depicting an ideal living that is both cheaper and healthier for the environment without losing beauty.

    Victoria and Gerry Evangelista of Bioskin Philippines and Bec and Geri's, a husband and wife team, achieved just that at their Davao facility.

    “Pwede kayong gumawa ng bahay na hindi lahat ay bibilhin, pwede kayong maka-save sa pagre-recycle lang,” CEO Victoria Evangelista told Summit OG.

    Due to a lack of other things to do during the pandemic, the couple came up with the concept of constructing a tiny home within their facility using empty 20 and 40 feet container vans.

    “Ini-start talaga namin itong [buuin] noong March [2021], at natapos siya in a little over 3 months,” Gerry recounted. “Ang bilis naming na-set up. Ang maganda dito sa container, although maliit siya, mabilis naman siyang i-construct at makaka-save ka sa time, pati na rin sa labor cost.”

    Bec and Geri's Tiny House aims to be ecologically friendly by recycling raw materials and repurposing old furniture, which is following the couple's overall mission to make their businesses and personal lives more environmentally responsible.

    With its many plants and nature-inspired artwork, the tiny house preserves a bohemian atmosphere.

    It's the ideal spot to relax and enjoy your surroundings, with two floors, two bathrooms, two bedrooms, an outdoor kitchen, an outside kitchen, a bathtub turned tiny pool at the side, and a balcony overlooking the wide patio, great for taking your family or friends on a getaway.

    “Dito na namin nilagay [ang tiny house] kaysa lumayo pa kami. Dito, pati yung mga empleyado namin nakakapag enjoy sila na magbakasyon kahit nasa loob lang ng facility,” Victoria explained.

    “Nagagamit din namin siya kapag may mga conference, kapag nag bu-business meeting kami parang nasa bahay lang din kami. Feel at home sila.”

    For the employees

    Instead of converting the tiny house into an Airbnb rental, the couple decided to make it mostly for their workers to enjoy. It's turned into a mini-paradise where they can host small parties, sleepovers, and other special family gatherings.

    “Ang pinaka magandang ginawa namin dito sa facility namin ay nai-share namin sa mga [employee] namin…Open ito sa lahat ng tao namin na gustong dalhin ‘yung family nila, hindi na namin inopen for airbnb para sila mismo, yung mga empleyado namin mag enjoy naman,” Victoria stated.
