Construction and Renovation Issues (Builder's Thread)

  • Tanong ko lang po if magkano po ang magagastos sa occupancy permit at magpapermanent connection ng Meralco?

    Minimal cost lang to sir, sorry di ko mahanap yung receipt ko pero wala akong maalala na binayarang malaki for this

    Basta sinunod mo lang yung bldg code, wala kang magiging problema, may inspection kasi to sa fire department sa pagkakatanda ko

    Yung meralco, sa tanda ko makaka-reimburse kapa jan to convert from commercial to residential connection

    Tsaka, okay lang ba magmove-in na ko bukas?

    Di ka na papa feng shui sir? Hehe
  • @aRTie,

    Thanks you sa response sir. Sana e okay makausap ko sa munisipyo at di na humingi ng padulas. Binanggit kasi nung site supervisor abot daw 30k mag pa permanent dahil ililipat yung pwesto ng metro. Di ko magets pano magmamahal dahil mukang okay na naman yung current na pwesto.

    Reg feng shui, di na sir. Di rin ako mapamahiin pero misis ko niready na yung bigas asukal at asin.

    Np sir. Pero hintay pa rin tayo ng ibang feedback, baka may nakapagpagaw na mas recent

    Mejo matagal na kasi yung sakin, baka meron silang mga bagong fees or something

    Pero doubtful ako dun sa 30k, parang cost na ata yan ng parelocate ng poste ng meralco sa subdivision
  • May nakita akong build now pay later na post sa FB, tingin niyo ok ba siya?
  • In the first place pinag-aralan mo dapat yun plano bago kayo nagka-pirmahan sa kontrata, para kung meron ka ayaw sa design pwede mo agad ito mabago, ikaw pa rin masusunod sa gusto mo, pero dagdag trabaho para sa Structural Engineer at Architect kung pabago-bago kayo ng esep at minsan maling pananaw kung ideal or proper ba ang structural design...

    OK lang maging skeptic lalo na kung wala tayo alam pagdating sa Engineering works, but you have to communicate well with your contractor para ma-educate din at malaman kung tama ba gawa nila, consult other engineers, kaya ang iba kumukuha ng consultant para tiga tingin kung tama ba ginagawa ng contractor nyo...


    @snakeeyes416140

    Thanks. I guess its partially my fault that i didnt look at the structural closely. To be honest i just saw that some columns on the second floor are a darker shade while the others were a lighter shade, didn’t know that darker ones represented columns from the ground floor and lighter ones are planted columns, i thought it was just the printing. =D

    Magkaibang grupo yung architect/engineers and the contractor. Both have separate contracts. The architect/ engineers will also inspect the structure if the specs were followed everytime magbubuhos yung contractor. The contractor won’t start without the engineer signing off on it.

    I’m happy with the design architecturally, it almost took a year to finalize and its really what we wanted (no odd shape rooms and equal sizes for all the bedrooms except masters). And only after that was it given to the engineers to design the structure, electrical and plumbing. And yet we still had to do some minor revisions (increased roof pitch and increase in floor to beam height). Structurally, its seems illogical on certain parts but what do i know, i’m not an engineer. Hahahaha

    Nakakahiya naman to have another structural engineer inspect another one’s work. I’ll ask for a copy of the structural analysis booklet that was given together with the plans for the permits. I’ll see him anyway when he inspects the structure and i’ll ask him then.
  • @euen

    from per annum of 5.25% to 8.25%
    nag compute ako
    effective rate of interest from 60% to 100% :((
    from mortgage of 22k to 27.5k per month.

    Sakit pag ganito, ang nakakatakot pa, possible na mas tumaas pa uli next recompute

    Kaya nung nag loan ako before, nag fixed interest ako for the duration ng loan, atleast walang surprises
    Fortunately, kahit mabigat, nairaos naman

    Nasa around magkano ba magagastos mo sa processing fee kung mag refinance?
  • @mark009

  • tanong lang, yung german white na granite ba wala na talaga sealer sa top? kakatapos lang gawin and ok naman.
