For her birthday last March 26, Kathryn Bernardo didn't get any gifts. Instead, she launched a vlog that showed the now 24-year-old gifting her family—and with something more impressive than a material present, at that. As chronicled in the video, right at the top of a hill overlooking the city all around it, Kathryn—with boyfriend Daniel Padilla, her family, friends, glam team, and other loved ones— grabbed a shovel and broke ground on the site. Her family's future dream home has just begun construction.

Curious how the Teen Queen's house would look like? Take the word of Architect Don Lino of Lino Architecture, Inc. who designed it: "When you look around here, it's on a hill," said Arch. Lino. "The idea for this house is that we wanted to maximize the views, and we wanted the form of the house to show that."
Daniel Padilla's manager Armando Cruz was also there to share in the well-wishes for Kath, "Sana, maging bonggang-bongga ang bahay na 'to, na napakalaki para sa lahat ng mga taong nagmamahal sa iyo!"
Someone who has been there since the beginning, Kathryn's mom Min Bernardo has high hopes for an easy, quick, and hassle-free construction process for the house: "Hopefully, walang aberya, at matapos 'to nang dire-diretso. Para pagka-25 years ng anak ko, dito ako magce-celebrate ng birthday nya!"
As for Kath herself? Her wishes for her 24th year and the busy year ahead struck simple: "Sana maging smooth lang yung buong proseso kasi andaming aayusin, sana good relationship with everybody, sana maging positive lang yung journey namin sa paggawa nito."
