This Old House (Philippines)

This is our next door neighbor in Tayug, Pangasinan Philippines where I spent my childhood days up to my high school years. A vacant lot separates the two houses. But what is amazing is that this house was already termite infested more than 50 years ago and it looks like it might still hold together for another decade. Maybe even more. This picture was taken in 2006 and remained the same when I visited our old house last March this year. Needless to say, it has also survived countless severe typhoons over the years! And yes there are 3 families still living in that house. It's more than 70 years old! Maybe I'll postpone the termite tenting and painting of my house for another 10 years and save more than $10,000.........
