  1. It is good to know that we, the students have given a chance to participate in this kind of project. But I would like to ask though, what do you mean exactly by "Deadline for submission of questions"?

  2. Thanks and hope to see you in the competition. Deadline for submission of questions means that will be the last day for any queries and questions about the competition will be entertained. Btw, you can access the blogspot of Bahay Pinoy at

  3. there are a few of us who're interested in entering the competition (category II, we're studs ^^) Just curious, since bamboo is the major building material to be used for the design, are other materials such as thatch allowed in the competition too? (for roofing, etc.) Will other organic materials be allowed?

    I'm also interested about Raul's query below ^___^
