My husband had difficulty finding the right people to finish our cottage house. He finally found a team of workers who could install the ceilings. They were the ones who installed the ceilings in Ford Cainta, Makati and Edsa. That’s better. He’s known the foreman and has trust in him.

unfinished cottage house,  workers

I think he wants to finish the house by summer time.

I have actually purchased all the wooden doors, ceramic floor tiles, sinks, water closets as early as two years ago. Ewan kung kumpleto pa o nagdisappear na sa bodega. We have a lot of old wood, excess metal parring, dry wall, roof, nahingi ko sa Cainta.

I showed my husband and the foreman where and how I wanted this window and lattice placed.

I haven’t finished painting the window white. I bought the paint and brush but have no time to do the painting.

We wanted to experience how nakakatakot it would be when darkness comes. We stayed till it was almost 6:30 pm. Of course it was dark, we could hear the crickets and other weird sounds, but none of the crying baby and bumubulong na tikbalang as allegedly experienced by our caretakers.

I saw my husband’s Facebook post the other day. He showed a photo of our unfinished retirement house which he calls Home for the Aged. This house has no planning. It started as a temporary shelter for me, a 50 sqm room with toilet, then we added a space for dining, balcony and one extra toilet. It is about 180 sqm. Tagpi-tagpi walang architectural plans, walang flow. Iba-iba ang roof. Hindi naman halata kasi kumupas na.

    1. Hi mS,

      The cottage house is far from finish. We don’t’ have the time to do it. Maybe in October next year.
      I am currently out of the country.
      Merry Christmas.
