This month is one of the very exciting part of my life as a mother. It is not only me who is very excited but also my husband. Although my schedule is so tight, I wanted to spare some time in posting updates of our upcoming home improvement. Last year I shared about our Home improvement plans. We were not able to accomplish it last year because of certain reasons such as the availability of the broadband connection and I also got pregnant. Now the home improvement will about to start this coming week.
It was year 2010 when hubby and I decided to look for a house and lot. Now we’ve already bought this house through Pag-ibig housing loan. We choose the bare-type house so we can design the interior architecture of our own house and the cost is lower compared to a fully furnish house. There is an extra lot at the side of our house where we can build house extension in the future and good area for my gardening. I wanted a single detached house but the subdivision is townhouse-style like in row houses so my hubby and I choose the end unit with extra lot.
Why we choose Las Palmas subdivision in Caypombo, Sta. Maria, Bulacan? First, I have fellow friends there and what made us choose this location is that my husband has relatives residing also in the subdivision. This location is flood-free, the subdivision was already developed, very near to the commercial sites like market, mall (Waltermart, Puregold), very accessible (there are bus route Garden-Baclaran Edsa- near the gate of the subdivision), 30- 45 minutes away from Balintawak, Quezon City, accessible to schools and church.
The photo above is the inside of our house and the home improvement will start this coming week. It was more than a year ago when I created the draft of our home. With the help of our contractor Engr. Ramon Panaligan, we have made minor revisions and changes to the first draft.
Before we started the home improvement, we completed the requirements for the construction permit and paid for the construction bond of Php 20, 000.
Plan requirements for application of construction bond in Las Palmas subdivision
- Site Development plan
- Architectural plan (Ground floor plan, 2nd Floor plan, front elevation, rear elevation, left side elevation, right side elevation)
- Structural plan (foundation, columns, beams, slab)
- Electrical and plumbing plan (if required)
I prayed that may God help us with the home improvement. May He shower strength, power and willingness to our contractor that the home improvement will be done in a very good way. May He shower blessings and guidance for our family. Next post in home improvement is about the details of the first part of the home improvement.
How about you? How was your experience with your home improvement?
