The Rehabilitation of the Ancestral House

The Punzalan Street Side

We've been working on this side for almost two months now. It was as much a challenge as any part of the house, starting from a pile of rubble, rooms stripped of cement flakes and doors and walls of rotted wood and rusted yero.

Details, details, details. New challenges, new solutions. Slowly, it transformed before us.

Cars slow down. Passersby stop by the gate, effusive with comments.

It's been a year since the rehab started. An earlier goal of finishing by May 2014 now seems unlikely. I look at what has been done, and what's left overwhelms.
