MANILA, Philippines - Actress Julia Montes said she's she's planning to build a new house for her family.

Montes said that having a new house for her family is one of her biggest dreams that may come true before the year end.

"Gusto kong mapatayo ng bahay ang family ko. Sana this year or next year," Montes said.

Montes got her big break after starring in ABS-CBN's hit TV series "Mara Clara" with Kathryn Bernardo.

"Nagbago talaga ang buhay ko pagkatapos ng Mara Clara. Nandiyan yung pagdating ng work, tapos nagkaroon ng movie," she said.

Montes is now gearing up for a teen-show titled "Growing Up." She just finished the movie "Way Back Home" under Star Cinema, also with Kathryn Bernardo.
