In January, Doug and Chesca Kramer revealed that their new house is under construction and if things go as planned, they hope to move in this year. As one of the most followed families on social media, Team Kramer has been giving construction updates on Instagram, giving their followers a peek inside the spacious haven. We already know that it will be a multi-storey property with a breathtaking view of Quezon City, Makati, and Laguna de Bay; and that they will have a porte cochere or a roofed porch-like structure where vehicles pass.

When the couple gave a tour of the home, they also shared that they will have an infinity pool, lots of glass windows, and a mini theater that can accommodate around 16 to 20 people. These details are enough to get us excited to see the finished project, especially when they revealed their chosen style for the space.

Doug and Chesca decided not to hire an interior designer, with Doug being on top of finalizing the floor plan and overseeing the details including the foundation, the wiring placements, and the materials used. They opted to work on a modern rustic home which suits the location. With huge windows defining the house and the lovely view of the outdoors, we can already imagine a homey and relaxing haven for the family of five. “My contract with my engineer is just a structural one, so this gives me the freedom to choose my desired finishes from tiles, ceiling, all the way to the roofing, instead of just giving a full amount to a contractor,” he shares in an Instagram post three months ago.

Just recently, the two visited the construction site, giving us fresh updates on their dream home. According to Chesca’s IG post, the tiles on the second floor have been installed. They chose light-colored tiles that go well with cement walls and we love it!

“When it will all come together, it will be an industrial look. The white walls will turn into an unfinished cement look and then the ceiling at our open areas inside the house will have different rough shades of wood using tanguile, then narra and kamagong. Doug made the doors 9 feet tall and even the door is 10 feet high,” she shares. Wow! Wood and cement make a great combination, of course!

Doug also posted a render of their future master bedroom—a cozy sanctuary dominated by wood and neutrals.

Swipe left on the post above to check it out. From the light wood flooring to the upholstered headboard set against a wooden rustic accent wall—it’s a snug escape, indeed! “3D render on point, 95% accurate,” Doug exclaims.

In finalizing the look and feel of their home, Doug and Chesca browsed through Pinterest and collated their favorite pegs.

Are you excited to see the finished house, too? We can’t wait for the next batch of updates!
