Abstract: The population growth, the increase in the need to obtain housing, and the deterioration of the environment make the world need to preserve the environment and energy-saving. An alternative to this requirement is using materials that contribute to local development and reduce costs in the construction industry. This study aims to carry out a bibliographic compilation on the most relevant aspects of construction with the bamboo Guadua angustifolia Kunth and prepare a descriptive report to serve as a reference for its execution. As a result, we have analyzed and designed a single-family house built mainly of Guadua angustifolia Kunth under the parameters required by the competent bodies in Ecuador in terms of size and budget. The execution of this type of project with the recommendations and guidelines issued follows the principles of bio construction, promotes vernacular architecture, and reduces the construction industry's ecological footprint. The results serve as a guiding document in the search for financing for low-cost housing and guide the work's execution and supervision. The objective is that these constructive proposals become generalized, and the Guadua angustifolia Kunth bamboo becomes a material with multiple applications to contribute to the housing problem in Ecuador.
