Valentine's Date

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Hubby and I celebrated this day by going to the mall, had a simple lunch then we went grocery shopping. It's not a fancy celebration, he didn't even give me a gift. It's okay with me because we are currently spending for the renovation of our house. We still need to buy materials for the bathroom and our kitchen sink still needs plumbing work. This is the reason I don't need any gift for this day because our budget is kinda tight right now. Having our own place is the best gift hubby could give me. It may not be my dream house but at least we have our own place and not renting.

By the way, here's a photo of us while we were having our Valentine's dinner at the mall. Take note, we were both wearing red shirts, lol!

Renovation Is Still Ongoing

This is now the third week since we started renovating our family house and made it into a duplex. The 2 storey goes to my brother and family and the bungalow goes to me and hubby. Our old porch is now enclosed and became part of the living room. The workers had to take down the wall separating the porch and the living room to make our new living room larger. The new sliding windows for the living room has been installed. I chose the ana look sliding windows. Hubby love it. The kitchen counter top has been tiled and the double sink has been installed. I chose elan pink tiles for the counter top and back splash. Now it just need kitchen cabinets.

They are now tiling  the floor in the kitchen, living and dining rooms. I chose a 16"x16" mangrove beech tiles. After they finish these, they will work on tiling the bedroom floor. I chose a shiny beige color for our bedroom floor. The last they will do is to construct a bathroom. My brother don't have to spend that much money in his house because he got the old kitchen, bathroom and furniture. All he gonna spend is for his entry door.
