Instead of sweeping floors with a broom, which just pushes dirt around, try a static sweeper, which attracts and holds dust.

I agree with Sofala. I just had my home improvement and hindi din biro ang nagastos namin. Ang contractor namin is 25k eto mga ginawa nila. kisame, room partition, mga cabinet (closet, kitchen cabinet, hanging cabinet for our LV room and console), yung foundation ng fence (hollow blocks) then sinemento nila yung bakuran. Sobrang binarat ko sila. natatawa nga mga kakilala ko.

Mas ok kung labor lang talaga sa knila at ikaw mismo ang mag ca canvass ng mga materials. Minsan na oover estimate nila kaya much better kung bawasan mo konti ang mga nililista nila na materials. ako naka 10x yata ako nagpadeliver. Pero ok lang kasi free naman ang delivery. Ok lang kulang wag lang sobra dahil kalat lang and mahirap din ibenta afterwards yung mga excess. Mas magastos talaga ang finishing / improvement. Kaya yung iba DIY lang namin like mga pagpintura ng mga cabinets

Sis, i need a carpenter. I would appreciate if you can refer  your carpenter to  us. Our home is at Cerritos Heights, Daan Hari. We have been dealing with contractors and carpenters within the area and they quote us sky high. As in 30k for paint work and this frustrates me n hubby. I hope you can send to me their contact info. Many thank! :)

Magandang option yung paggamit ng sound proof sis  :) Buti na lang samin meron na agad because I lived in a condominium development here in Taguig.

@Leishrac
yep.  acoustic board or egg crate if you want sound proof.  kami, house and lot.  more spacious than condo.  although, i also want to have a condo in the future.

good for you, napili mong condo sound proof.  kasi meron daw ibang condo na hindi sound proof.
Do some time with the one you love.

My future father-in-law has his own tile company, and he made me a coffee table made of granite. Heavy, sturdy and oh so elegant. The legs were custom made din, made of bakal/ steel, he designed it and made it for me :D the table is about 3 feet long and it's freakin gorgeous. He also made matching side tables. This is just an idea. Instead of buying new furnitures, you can actually just make your own. Granite costs a lot i know but you can sub naman, like marble maybe
