SK Update: Plexibond Painting

One of the problems of my house in Baguio is that there are water leaks in the walls huhuhu. And the areas that are most affected are the walls of my room and one side of the living room because most of the time, the wind’s direction is hitting those areas directly.

And so last summer, my brother painted the exterior walls with plexibond. I am not sure if this was not available 7 years ago when I was building the house. Or maybe there was another way of water proofing done but it just did not turn out well. We are observing the improvement now So far, so good as per my brother. There were no leaks on the walls during the strong rains in June and July. So whew! I hope that permanently resolved the issue.

Cost: So far, I spent around Php 8,000.00 for the materials – 6 or 7 cans of plexibond paint and 2 or 3 bags of cement. We are not done yet with the upper part. I need to buy more.

Plexibond Painting

The upper part has no plexibond yet. Unfortunately, we used 2 different brands, hence the difference in shades. I was being OC and was asking my brother if he can repaint the lower part to make all colors the same. I’m not sure if it still can be done.

SK Update: Dining Table and Chairs

Background muna. Except for the 3 beds, the kitchen cabinets, and an unfinished dining table, my home doesn’t have any furniture. Mono-bloc chairs lang kung matatawag mang furniture yun hehehehe. I don’t have a sala set, clothes cabinet, book shelves, TV rack and whatever else that should be in a house to at least keep it organized. There was really no major improvement after I had it blessed in 2013.

And so in 2017, I commit to make more improvements in my Baguio home (aka SK Baguio) as soon as saved budget permits.

Improvement #1:

I now have non-mono-bloc dining chairs. My brother made them during his free time. We have been using them since late February I think and I’m loving them so far.

In fairness, pulido ang pagkakagawa. OC rin kasi ang kapatid ko pagdating sa mga projects nya hehehe. Galing-galing.

The dining table was made by my father. Awww I think this was his last project for me. Huhu. Anyway, I think the pine wood used was donated by an uncle. Galing pa yan sa lugar ng nanay ko ata. The titos knew I was on tipid mode because of all my loans those days so naawa ata at dinonate na lang yung wood hahaha.

The table did not have varnish though so my brother also did the finishing to match the chairs.


Chairs on the making


Tada! The finished product. While my dining area is small, I still love staying here because it is beside a window with a view of trees and mountains.

I am not sure of the cost because materials were purchased separately, plus those we bought were not consumed just for these pieces. Wala pa akong time (and tyagang) mag-break down and compute for now hihi. For my brother’s labor, he’s requesting that I buy him one of the main tools he’ll use for all the furniture so that we don’t need to borrow from the other brother. Besides, all tools from cousins/brother/friends are always in use. Sayang ang time!

Until the next house project! We already have several furniture lined up. I’ll just post them once done but so far, here’s what’s in my list which are my priorities.


Priorities which hopefully will be completed this year.
