Foundation Repair and Home Improvements

We’re planning for a major renovation of our house and we’re going to make it a duplex type. Our house is big for us and we think it’s better if we can make it two separate homes for my Mom and sister and for my family. My engineer brother told us that we’re going to save a lot for this because we planned to change the structural foundation of the house. The wood flooring in the upper storey will also be converted to cement for a sturdier second floor. 

With the past flooding in our town in the last four years we want also to raise our major flooring to one foot higher to prevent floods from reaching it. We didn’t want to experience another flood again as it’s not only stressful but tiring as well. Changing the structure of a house is not that easy but if you have an experienced contractor that will do the job well it will be an easier task like my brother and such contractor like  foundation repair ottawa which provides renovation works at a price you will agree before the repair begins.

Mom's Day

This is a late post of our celebration of Mom's day last 2 weeks.  We celebrated on the evening of 11th to avoid the crowd and to allow ourselves more time to enjoy our bonding.  We have fellowship on Sunday and it would be so late if we will have dinner at 8-9pm.  Anyway it's just a simple dinner with husband, kids, my sister and of course my Mom.  We always do it together - two Moms' celebration every year in one dinner.  Strolling through the mall near us we just ask them where they want to eat.  Since the kids like halo halo and cakes we ate at Goldilocks to enjoy what they want.

After dinner Mom and sister went home because Mom was tired already and wanted to rest earlier while we enjoyed the remaining few hours at the World of Fun.  Kids just love celebrating occasions with playing at the arcade as our final stop over.  Well the kids in us prompted us to play also and I enjoyed baseball and basketball so much, of course with my kids beside me.

Here are some pics to cap the bonding and fun:
