In week 7 of our home improvement at Las Palmas, I was really hoping that our home improvement will be done before July ends but now is August and still the house remains unfinished. What happened? It was a very long story that the problem existed with our contractor. What’s important is that there is already a closure between the contractor and us.
Before they stopped the improvement we have an arrangement with the contractor covering three important things. First, they need to accomplish the plastering to make the rough finish in the Kitchen area including outside the extension of the house installing the back door. At the kitchen area, they should also use the remaining materials for the closure of the extension including the walls. Second, they must fix the right elevation of the stairs removing the excess cement that was incorrectly done. Lastly, they need to use all the remaining cement in doing the smooth finish at the 1st floor.
After doing their part, our contract is over with them. My husband and I decided to personally handle the improvement controlling the materials that we should buy. We’ve already talked to our close skilled carpenter who’ve worked with us for many years. Because of the delay in our home improvement, our moving plan will be next year after the school year. My eldest son was enrolled here in Caloocan and we have to wait for the school year ending before we completely move to our new home.
It was truly stressful in handling house construction or home improvement. At least now I can see more progress before they totally stopped the improvement. Our next move is to secure our home and we will be installing grilles on the windows. Our target finish date is before Christmas. Once done, this will be a perfect gift for our family this Christmas. I have learned a lot in this journey of my life.
