Home Improvement Projects

We were very happy to have introduced a lot of improvements in the house for the past 3 months. Hubby was on a 3 month vacation and we had taken this opportunity to work on our goal, home improvement. Actually I've been eyeing on some "small projects" only like installing canopy in the garden, installation of floor tiles from laundry area down to the garden and minor fixes in the dirty kitchen but it turned out to be bigger than expected. House expansion was not yet a part of the plan but we have managed to finally put up the would be "Master's Bedroom".  This is going to be the fourth bedroom in the house and mind you this house has really been a labor of love. It was not like this when initially constructed. We have to work very hard to raise the funds, save here save there kind of thing until we were able to complete the house and put everything in place.  Of course, our goal didn't stop there.  We wanted a house that's simple but decent and presentable and of course, I wanted that it should be comfortable for all of us.  This is the most difficult part as what you require in the house could not be determined in a single year, we have to go for a transition period before we finally realize what's good for us.  Finances is another consideration , construction materials and labor is not cheap these days, so in order for us to fulfill what we deemed is necessary, we have to work hard, save enough and live frugal. We did not resort to applying for loans as we wanted our first house to be raised from scratch as in every penny spent was saved from our salaries and over time. So as they say, "patience is a virtue", indeed that's true and still true until this day.













































From the photo, the expansion project seemed to be complete but it's not actually 100% done yet. The porch upstairs is just temporary, not totally complete yet and the bedroom itself is just "rough finish". Hubby's vacation was over and our budget too is getting tight so in order for him to be given his much needed rest and to enjoy the last 2 weeks of vacation in the Philippines, the family decided that we have to stop with the projects.  Also, we do not want our financial resources to be totally drained, so we have to set priorities and the first on the list is to spend quality time with the family. :)

It;s not too bad though as majority of the things were already put in place.  We put safety and security ahead of the others, that's why a steel gate and fence were installed just outside the small outdoor room leading to the stairs to the Master's Bedroom.



Even the other side of the yard was enclosed with steel fence.  We really make it a point that the whole place will be secured.

I know that we still have to save more to complete the bedroom up to the last stage but we are positive that we can do it in due time.  I promised to post the updated photos once we are settled with everything and hopefully, that would be early next year.  Nothing is impossible if you are determined right?

So, this is just a part of the home improvement projects, I know that there are still more to come. :)

Ciao!
