The Binuron by migzmiguel08 The Binuron by migzmiguel08
This type of vernacular house is known for it's inverted-boat-like roofing which is made of bamboo. The Binuron is known to be the abode of the Isneg people
found in northern Philippines. According to some sources, the boat-like structure was made possible because the Isneg people are used to building boats; not to mention
that their province (Apayao) has a navigable river. The construction technique for the roof is splitting the bamboo in half, and laid with alternating (faced up and face down) arrangement.
