Dividing the house into two/Renovation
« on: January 31, 2012, 11:20:12 AM »
Hi Sises :)! I dont know what do you call this ha?:))

My MIL talked to me today and told me she wanted to divide her house into two so that we can have a separate house na and all. We are currently residing with them with my husbands brother and sister. Now, his elder sister had already her own house and his kuya will soon start to construct their house. so my MIL also want us to have a house that wont cost so much. the problem is, How? can i seek advice from an interior designer instead of an engineer or architect? this is not too soon but im planning it cause i want to execute something when it happens.  ;D

Please help :) TIA

dividing the house like you have to go outside to go to the other house or simply dividing two spaces/areas with a wall? kasi if you're going to divide the house (literally), you really need an architect since structural na siya but if it is simply dividing the two spaces with a wall, an ID will do.  I just hope you have a blueprint copy of the house so the ID can plan the areas properly.  S/he needs to see kasi if may kelangan iwasan na pipes, beam, wires, etc. I suggest to get a contractor who is also an architect, in that way, you and the ID can get "free" tips and suggestions while doing the project.
