After tying the knot in November, celebrity couple Jennylyn Mercado and Dennis Trillo ended 2021 with another milestone, giving their followers a peek inside the container van house they’re building in the mountains.

In a vlog they posted on Youtube in December, they shared that the house is already at 70 percent completion and they will be moving in a few months’ time. “Naisip namin na magiging beneficial sa aming lahat na dito mag-stay dahil dito sa bundok, presko ang hangin, presko ang pagkain (We thought it’s best for all of us to live here in the mountain because of the fresh air and food),” said Dennis in the video.

Measuring around 1, 000sqm, the home is just right for the growing family as it will have a spacious outdoor area, a bedroom for Jennylyn’s son, Jazz, a bedroom for Dennis’s son, Calix, and a nursery for their soon-to-be-born bundle of joy.


Of course, the couple will have a sizeable master bedroom complete with a bathroom and an access to the view deck.

Check out some of the home’s areas below:

In the beginning of the video, a perspective of the house can be seen which highlights outdoor seating areas, a view deck, and enough rooms for all members of the family.


Living Room

Upon entrance to the house, the kitchen and dining areas will be on the right, while the living and entertainment space will be on the left. A guest bedroom and bathroom will also be on the ground floor.



The second floor houses the bedrooms—including the spacious nursery completed with windows, the bedrooms of Jazz and Calix, and the couple’s master bedroom.

View Deck

Perhaps the focal point of the house is the view deck which can be accessed from the hallway through a door and from Jennylyn and Dennis’s room.
