Hi mga sis! I am actually moving in this June on my new condo. 30 SQM po siya in Cainta. Do you know any good reliable contractor for this? Kailangan ko na rin yung mga dedesign ng condo space for me and my son. Mga magkano kaya ang aabutin? Sana yung highly recommended niyo at hindi yung kakilala lang po. Thanks.

Anything I should look out for? Wala kasi akong mapagtanungan. Thanks!

I also want my 30sqm condo unit renovated. Naaalibadbaran nako sa sobrang sikip so gusto ko ipabago ang ayos.

^Nicko, do you have a portfolio of your drawings?

@misssugarrushed
i can recommend someone i know for your condo unit, he knows how to save space.  what you should look-out for is before you move-in sa condo, you should have punchlist.
Do some time with the one you love.

We're very happy with our contractor, M. Sabarre Builders. Marami silang projects in QC and in some provinces rin ata. Highly recommended namin this contractor because very pulido and honest ang mga gawa nila.

We are having our condo renovated with kitchen cabinets, wardrobe, wall shelves, big mirrors, etc. We are so excited to see the outcome kasi so far maganda na lahat ng mga nakabit/gawa nila :) And our contractor charges us only half of the price of the first contractor na pinag-paquotan namin. nakaya nila ng 36K, pasok talaga sa budget namin.

@joanniekiko
sa architect ka magpa-design kasi sila ang gumagawa nun.  sila ang mas may alam dun.  bawal magdesign ang civil engineer ang alam ko, pwede mo sila isumbong.

yung architect na kakilala ko, expert sya sa passive cooling design.  yung mga nagawan nya ng bahay, minsan lang gumamit ng aircon.  sobrang tipid sa kuryente.  tapos ang architect na ang gagawa ng punchlist para sayo kapag turnover na ng bahay, kasama mo sya sa pagturn-over actually.

pm mo ako if you want his number.

jp_jameop : yes sis nag suggest naman kami kaso halos kami nga lang ang nag iisip, mas ok sana kung may suggestions din cia.

Dacian: Sinabi ko na kay hubby na kumuha cia ng architect para mas ok ang design then sa construction dun na lang kako papasok ang role ni engineer. sis, meron ka sample ng mga nagawan na nya? Thanks!

one more thing pala, yung civil engineer na kausap ni hubby ask him 10k down payment. 20k ang hinihingi nya kay hubby as a whole fee for electrical, plumbing,house plan, etc prior to house permit. Pero wala naman cia kasama na architect, bale cia na daw bahala magpa sign sa architect, i read kasi sa kabilang thread usually daw 18-25k kasama na architect. Hinde ko gaano maintindihan, young sinasabi ba na architect is dapat nakakausap din namin or cia lang and nakikipag communicate? ok lang ba price ni engineer? thanks!

Hi Mga sis!

Baka meron kayong marerecommend na contractor from Calamba.
Plano namin paggawa yung bahay naming napakalaki (33sqm) bago namin lipatan hehe...
Tiles, ceiling, and partition lang papaggawa.  Di pa kasi ata kaya ng budget namin ang paextend...

maski mag hire talaga ng contractors ngayon mahirap na ipagkatiwala... kaya tingin ko the best pa rin kung kaya naman mag sub con ka na lang... swerte kami yung byenan ko marunong sa construction kaya plano nya sya ang magbabantay ng gawa ng mga tao

Nakakaloka... repaint lang inside and out ng house namin is 200k na. Buddy pa namn ng asawa ko un  contractor.  We are not going ahead with him. Mashadong mahal. Im reconsidering sa iba magpagawa.
