A House is not a Home

A House is not a Home I may sound old school, but I prefer calling our house as home. The reason behind, it’s because when I hear the word home it, my mind automatically pictures out the images of a perfect place to stay and relax free from stress.

Recently, my sister’s family has successfully moved to their new home a few blocks away from their old location. Since, my niece and nephew are starting to grow up; it was then a perfect time for their relocation.

Their new home is three times bigger from the previous one, about 65 square meters. Moreover, it is a three storey building which is cozy enough for a family of six members including their helper and another extended family member.

Unlike their old home, this one has its own parking space. Well, a much more secured way of placing their Mitsubishi Delica. When I check the interior and exterior designs of their home, I was quite impressed because the construction was only overseen by my Brother-In-Law, who is a Dentist by profession and another person who is their foreman. Of course, the whole building plan was designed by his Civil Engineer brother. But it’s quite impressive because knowing that he is a Dentist, he was able to successfully accomplish supervising the construction close to the timeline that he has planned.

When I asked him about the costs, he said he spent more than a million pesos for the home construction with the assistance from his siblings. The price speaks for itself as it can be seen on the output. The materials that have been used there were elegant and within standards, like the one mostly found in exclusive industrial supply company of today’s modern times.

I can still remember the time when their home is not completely built yet, one cannot imagine how it will look like after construction. But now, I am inspired because my expectation was over-all exceeded. Furthermore, I can confidently say that their house is not just a house but a home for a loving and caring family like my sister’s have. (AAP)
