STILL NOT IN!

Goodbye 2015. You were hopeful but not goal reaching. Welcome 2016... be realistic.

WE ARE STILL NOT IN. It has been 2 years and 3 months now. Most of the building works inside the house were done by my husband, and I (as a helper). It was not easy. We saved money but we spend a lot of our precious time. TIME that you cannot take back. It is very frustrating. It is getting more frustrating because the house is already finish and yet... we are still not IN. If I am being asked, "should someone build the house on his/her own or let a company finish it for them" --- my answer will be --- LET THE COMPANY FINISH IT FOR THEM! They will be finish in maximum of 6 months. You may not be saving a lot of money in that way, but you are saving a lot of your precious time. As we all know, TIME when spent, cannot be taken back. 

There are a lot of things that people consider before building a house. Number one is money. Number two is time. Decide wisely and follow your heart.

It takes hands to build a house, but only heart can build a home.

WE ARE STILL NOT MOVING IN THIS YEAR =( Frustrations Overflow

I have been struggling about this feeling for the last three Xmas years (2013, 2014 and now 2015). Ok... 2013 is very impossible to move-in since the house is only three months old and everything is still a skeleton debris. But, I was hoping and wishing that it will be last year (2014). But still it did not happen. I thought, it will be very possible for us to move-in before the year 2015 ends. But I was wrong.

The longest time spent in building the same type of house, from the same building company was 2 years and 7 months.

I am totally frustrated about this house building. I'm depressed to think about moving-in anytime or sometime soon.

MY KITCHEN will be delivered this coming Wednesday. MY VERY OWN KITCHEN. The place where I can be myself. It is soooo sad that I cannot cook there yet. I need to wait for that time, WHEN WE WILL EVER MOVE-IN to this house.

I wanna see and visit my family back home soon.

Bathroom Floorings Started

We are hoping that before the kitchen arrives, our bathroom is already finished with floorings. This is just the start of it...



Our Kitchen is Almost Ready

Kitchen is the heart of the house. When it is there, then theoretically the Family can move it. It took a long time for us to really decide about how we want our kitchen to be. I am happy to see that at this point, we are almost there.
