tip din pala:

never buy ng sabay sabay  sa lahat ng materyales sa hardware, kase ang iba tingi tingi ang deliver.
tapos always look for quality kase may mga abnoy na di maayos ang amteryales na ibibigay

tips sa construction: buy all rebars,cement, sand, gravel from direct supplier like pag-asa steel(rebars) kasi pag sa hardware may patong na plus minsan substandard mga bakal. (pacompute nyo sa foreman or engr ilan bakal gagamitin or we call it cutting list) minsan ang patingi tingi hindi din nakakasave mas malaki pa magagastos sa tingi since may delivery charges saka wala discount sa tingi.

kung may time kayo, bantayan maigi ang construction kasi ang mga workers pag wala makain at pera ibebenta paisa-isa mga materials (lagi nangyayari sa amin 'toh, nahuli pa namin iba workers sa akto!)

pakyawan mga workers - mas mabilis at mas matipid if small project. pero don't expect pulido ang work, pag arawan kasi super babagalan nila magwork, gagawin ka gatasan.

I-require niyo sa gagawa ng plano niyo ang value engineering at green architecture, malaki matitipid niyo sa pag-construct at renovate pag na-apply 'eto sa plano. :) marami ways pede makatipid, canvass kayo materials online (sa sulit) then compare niyo price sa wilcon at hardware. minsan kahit sabihin ng supplier fixed price yan wag kayo maniwala, manghingi pa din kayo discount, learn how to negotiate - malaki matitipid niyo kakahingi ng tawad.

then, higit sa lahat, hire kayo ng skilled workers, kahit mahal ng konti ang salary ang importante may quality ang work hindi un paulit-ulit. ;)

Since asa Valenzuela pa kami nung pinapa construct ko yung gate and fence namin kaya di ko nabantayan ang pag gawa, iniasa ko nalang sa engineer na agent ko. Ang unang usapan namin was 50K for the whole fence plus installation ng gate na nabili namin ni hubby. Ang ginagawa pala nya bili sya ng bili ng excess na materials buti nalang nakikita namin, aba nung natapos yung fence sangkatutak pang hallowblocks ang natira. Pina install ko nalang dun sa kitchen para mas mataas ang likod, nung natapos may tira parin, pinalagay ko ngayon sa division ng future music room, nung nagkulang naglabas nanaman ako ng pera. Tapos nagpagawa ako ng service gate susme, yung quote nyang 6K naging 12K materials palang yun. Imbes na maging panatag ako lagi ko iniisip habang asa Valenzuela kami. Buti nalang at lagi akong bumibisita pati hubby ko.

Tapos pati yung tira tirang materials ng gate kinuha pa after. Di na nga lang kami nagbayad sa kanya kasi mukhang di rin naman sya madalas bumisita dun at parang wala syang idea sa ginagawa ng workers nya. Ang dami ring tirang buhangin ang gravel, kaya yung tira sa iba ko na ipagagawa yung sure akong di ako gugulangan. Imbes na makatipid nakakapag labas pa ng extra eh dapat sa ibang bagay na ginagamit ang pera.
It is impossible to love and to be wise.

I went to the housing fair kanina sa smx...naintriga ako dun sa 2 na nagbebenta ng materials sa bahay.

Attention contractors or engineers, kase yung isang nakita ko styropor at alambre lang tas papalitadahan ng concrete ayus na ang walling mo, ok ba yung ganun? Yung isa naman purely bakal lang sya na parang  chicken ang dating tas ganun din pour ng concrete with beads something. Both are mura compared to chb.
What do you think, matibay ba talaga?

Finally, after long years of planning, eto na., :)
start na kami ng construction. Thank God!

Kapit bahay lang namin si manong contructor at paisa isa ang pagawa namin sa kanya. Wala pa kasi kaming enough funds. Habang nag iipon kasi tumataas ang cost ng materials so balak muna namin unahin ang poste, slab at septic tank.

 Inuna muna nya ang septic tank, pakyaw nya 35k para sa 4x6 and 5ft na hukay. After nun, mga poste naman.

^Wow!sis. I am so happy for you nagstart na ang construction ng house ninyo.  35K ba is for the septic tank alone or kasama dun ang poste at slab? Kasi kung septic tank for pakyaw medyo namamahalan ako kasi ako for all Ceiling,Partitions, slab, extension ng kitchen, paint ng primer, bakod for only 19K all in, pero that was way back 2011, baka nga pati labor nagmahal na.

^ thanks so much sis.. ^.^

naku sis kasi ba naman purong adobe yung lote namin kaya mhhirapan talaga sila mag hukay. Sila na bahala kung pano nila hhukayin yun. Gagamit pa ata sila ng jack hammer. haha, kasama na din dyan pala ang clearing at pagpuputol ng mga kahoy.

Naku sis, dahil yan sa CNY bonus natin. Salamat sa Dyos at kay amo.

Next naman e mga poste na.  ;D

Mga sis, mura na ba ang 250-300k na Ceiling,Partitions, slab and painting ng buong bahay? Lahat na daw yun, labor, materials, etc.

Or mas makakamura kaya kami kung kami bibili ng materials and arawan nalang bayad namin sa kanila?

Thanks!

^architect muna po. prepare around 25k to P50k for that. architectural design ang gusto mo actually. they will prepare the Bill of Materials, drawings, etc etc.

thanks sis. Bungalo ang house namin.
 Gusto ko sana palagyan ng 2nd floor,  ang interior designer ang madalas mas magaling sa pagdecide which part of the space ilagay ang isang function room diba, kasi sila ang nkaka alam san ang tama ng SUNlight.

kung architect alone, edi dagdag walls nnaman kapag hinuli ko ang inquiry sa interior dba? i hope naexplain ko.

@tartyjud
tama si younis.  architect ang kelangan mo muna.  architect ang mas expertise sa tamang orientation ng sunlight.  ang architect, pwede sila mag-interior design.  pero ang interior designer, hindi pwede maghouse design like architect.  need mo rin ang signature ng architect kapag papagawa ka ng 2nd floor.  bawal na wala.  magkaka-penalty ka.  kapag meron ka na architect, pwede ka na maghire ng interior designer (optional ito, kung gusto mo lang).  then hire a contractor.  hth.

question, in constructing your house, anong room ba ang dapat i-prioritize? for me kasi, i prioritized 1. toilet and bath, 2. kitchen, 3. laundry area, 4. bedrooms. this is based on investment .
