Our New Home

We just moved in to our new house and so far, Jamie did not have any problems adjusting to the new environment. We haven’t moved all our stuff yet, like my 2 BMX’s and 2 Mountain Bikes and a whole bookshelf full of books that are all still at the Teresa house.

Our house. You might think it is big, but this is a townhouse, so it is only up to the aircon hole at the 2nd floor, pass that on the left is not our house anymore.

Thanks to Mang Jun, who just lives near by whom we got to fix the house up. Emil the Iron Works guy, thanks to him too, who worked on the steel gates and window grills. Both really gave us very ideal prices. Thanks to them we still have enough money left to place food on the table. 🙂 LOL

This garage is just right for our car. You even have to park it a bit sideways to get the whole car in and still have room to walk around and be able to close the gate well.

Our garage did not even exist before, the soil was so high that we needed to have truck loads of soil hauled out. So our front door is much higher than the garage.

This is not a big house, but since it is a corner lot, at least we still have some space on the side for gardening, well probably have some grass on this mini-yard. This space is still good enough for Jamie’s mini swimming pool, a pingpong table, jumping around, morning exercise, kicking exercises and other activities.

This is not as big as it looks like. It just looks longer in pictures.

The back gate

Good enough to live in but is still working on it. We do not even have a refrigerator yet so all we eat should be good enough for us to have no leftovers since we have no place to store them. We have no washing machine yet, but I think we’ll buy a refrigerator first.

Me and Marcia really spent a lot of time thinking on how everything looks like before we had things made and we really looked around for the best deals. Tiles at Federal Hardware was cheaper than others. But our bathroom tiles came from this tile store along Regalado near Lagro. Basic supplies from Ramos Hardware just in front of the North Olympus gate at Phase IV. Ace Hardware and Handyman were also cool for the puzzle carpets and other high-tech stuff. Cabinet handles were very cheap at Uniwide Sales Warehouse at Novaliches. A big drop from the prices at Ace and Handyman. HomeWorks at Ever Gotesco had cheap entertainment system furniture and living room center tables. Briones-Casal aluminum and Glass works always gave us the best deal. Our dining table was on sale at SOGO/Blims at Robinson’s place Novaliches.

I like going around looking for the best price, but I would not feel like doing it alone, that’s a good thing that Marcia likes going around for the best price alone or not alone, so it was nice going around with my wife looking for the best deals in town for our house.

Keep visiting this site from month to month and you’ll see how our home will even improve a lot more.
