    You probably mean boards for the eaves. Most economical would be Hardiflex and it has the characteristics as being touted by omniboard. Omni board has somewhat has wood fiber properties that may not stand rotting. I'm still not sure about it. When in doubt, stick with the tried and tested. If you still have money to spend you can use hardiplank. Looks like T&G and with the faux wood grain to boot. A more maintenance free choice is the pre-painted spandrel a bit pricey though.

    Omniboard prices (for 2 x 8 ft) last time I checked:
    L = low density
    M = medium density
    H = high density
    10 mm M P356.45
    15 mm M P533.62
    20 mm M P711.85
    20 mm H P1,001.86
    25 mm M P889.02
    25 mm H P1,252.85
    40 mm L P711.85
    40 mm M P1,423.70
    50 mm L P865.82
    50 mm M P1,780.15

    Are these still the prices now? How does that compare with Hardiflex?

    For ceiling, we recently tried Omniboard instead of Hardiflex. One reason (not mentioned in the advertised list of features) was because Hardiflex seems more brittle and not as able to take repeated unscrewing and rescrewing.

    Omniboard also has a different look than Hardiflex, which some may find more appealing or interesting, if the natural texture is not hidden by your finishing method.

    Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) was not considered because its manufacture, use, and disposal is nowadays considered harmful to human health and to the environment, and we want to reduce our dependence on this common building material.

    Another environmentally good option might be bamboo, as in bahay kubo or nipa hut floor/ceiling?

    If there is to be a cement slab above the ceiling, I understand that you can use bamboo poles split lengthwise into two and laid side by side, both as a form for pouring the cement onto as well as the final ceiling. No plywood formwork needed anymore, supposedly. Has anyone tried this?
