Daddy was a keen builder and renovator of houses. When Mama and he were just married, Uncle Joe gave them a lot allotment and he quickly built a 2-bedroom house at first. As the family grew, he added extensions, attics, floors on the basement.
As a legacy, his children especially my brothers worked their hardest to save money to build/buy their own houses for their own families.
We always loved owning our own homes no matter how big or small they are.
Dad's children had spread their wings- in the Phils/USA/Australia
We do hope that our children will continue the legacy of the importance of a good home.
note:my house is the smallest!
