I always dreamed of having my own house. Even if it is small. Living in a different boarding house for over a decade is comfortable but too expensive.
This year, 2014, that one simple dream was accomplished. I have made that little dream of me come to life.
Late last year when we started our little home. Accounts of the progress will be posted via photos.
Each day after school, I went in to check what has been done that day.
|the area still needs major preparation|
|after a 5 days|
|only the base is done. started with the first wall.|
|this is the whole area. small but still its mine.. :)|
|piling up, brick by brick|
|you can see the form now. another week has passed|
|view on different side|
|there is this jackfruit tree in the very front of the house. it's okay.|
|almost. waiting for that roof now.|
|they had started making the "hamba" for the roof|
|"hamba" woods that will hold the roof while it's still fresh.|
|see that? im excited now.|
|Since it is design to have 2nd floor, the base of the roof should be strong.|
|its was pure cement they used. but after staying for a few months with heavy rains, this roof needs a minor repair.|
|Checking on the roof.|
|looks like it's done, but its not. It's all just a box, no furnishing yet.|
|they have started with the kitchen, and I am glad.|
|This is it. After 3 months it has more plants now in front and livelier view.|
There were a lot more improvements now than that last photo. I am proud because from now on, I may be still living in a small box, but it's mine and I'm not paying for it every month.
This is a simple dream that I have when I was young, and its coming to life. :)
