Actor Zanjoe Marudo is set to accomplish another goal—he's currently building a house in Tanauan,  Batangas, his hometown. In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) on Wednesday, September 5, the 36-year-old Kapamilya star says it took him over a decade to cross this item off his bucket list.

Zanjoe recalls, "May lupa kasi akong nabili dati, way back pa mga 10 years ago dun sa probinsya namin, kung saan talaga ako pinanganak, kung saan ako lumaki. Finally, last Summer, nag-start na siya ng construction dahil ano siya, e, manggahan. So tinayo ko siya sa pinakagitna sa likod."

The house, according to the Playhouse actor, will serve as his sanctuary away from the city.

He tells PEP.ph, "Matagal na matagal ko nang gustong gawin yun kasi every time umuuwi ako, wala akong ma-stay-an na place dun sa amin. Meron naman kaso nandun siya sa community. E, ang gusto ko lang yung tahimik lang na lugar, tahimik na nature. Nag-start na siya, malapit na rin matapos."

Zanjoe gave his Instagram followers a glimpse of his abode, which does not have walls yet. He hopes to complete the construction on the last week of October. When asked about the design of his rest house, Zanjoe wants it to look contemporary and simple.

"Medyo ano modern siya, modern yung ginawa ko kasi nga nasa bundok na siya, e, nasa bukid na siya so mukha siyang probinsya. So nilagay ko, kinontrast ko siya. Naglagay ako ng maliit na modern house sa gitna ng bukid. Kasi pag ginawa ko siyang parang kubo rin, parang typical."

He added, "Hindi siya complicated, napaka-simple lang ng layout. As in isang tingin mo lang... kahit sang side ka pumunta, kita mo na at alam mo na kung ano itsura nung bahay."
