They say almost every family in the Philippines has at least one OFW. One is quite conservative, but to have three – that’s like you hit a jackpot! This is because not everyone can become or would like to become an OFW.
First of all, the process can be quite rigorous. Another reason is that this kind of life isn’t going to be easy – but to those who make it, and make it big overseas, it’s going to be super worth it! In this post, we will share the combined efforts of three siblings, 2 OFWs based in Singapore and the other, working as a seaman, in building a beautiful three-bedroom family dream house.

3 OFW Siblings Build Beautiful 3-BR Family House
Being an OFW may not be for everyone, but for those who find meaning and satisfaction in this kind of opportunity, there are several benefits that await them. But put in three OFWs together and a common goal, and you can only expect great things to happen.
In this case, Ram and his siblings were able to construct their own three-bedroom family dream house. Another advantage that most OFWs have over other people is their bigger worldview. This means that they have been more exposed to different cultures, tastes, and styles, which could influence how they decide on what they want to have for themselves or, in this case, their own home. Let’s take a look.
The vlog, though without voice narration, is extremely pleasant to the eyes. The siblings know how to put aesthetic value in their work. In the first few minutes of the vlog, we are welcomed by the lush greens and nice things in their front yard. And then, the calm and relaxing atmosphere of the place at night with warm lights shining on the pavement if you want to enjoy the nighttime atmosphere.
The house may seem minimalist from the outside, but it’s quite elegant and modern once you look inside. The three bedrooms have all been completely furnished with furniture and modern appliances. You might even think like it’s a condo suite of some sort, but don’t take our word for it! You be the judge. Here are some of the pictures inside their house:
Having a dream house is one thing, but having a family dream house is definitely a bigger blessing! Ram and his siblings were fortunate enough to have invested in their house even before the pandemic happened. That said, they can now enjoy the fruits of their labor, even while here in the Philippines.
But even during a pandemic, we see some people thriving, still. The main thing here is that, when you can, invest early, because there’s no telling what the future will hold and when possible, start a project with other people – like in their case, all three siblings invested in their house project, so it has become much more achievable, and look just how beautiful their house is!
