If only I have a bigger space here at home, I may put up a music room, you see we have numbers of musical instrument and we just put it any corner in the house. The violin that I bought was left alone in one corner in our bedroom; the guitar of Faith was also in another corner of the bedroom. The piano is in the kitchen and oh the drums? Lol we actually don’t have drums maybe if my budget is enough for home renovation and I can put up an extension to get a bigger space. I would probably buy yamaha drums at guitarcenter.com, I am sure Mj will be delighted that we have a set of drums that she can practice playing at home.
My eldest daughter is a musician in fact she know how to play almost all of them. I am so proud seeing her playing the drums on their recital, she said she learned the beat on her own for a particular song. Her coach even congratulated her for a job well done.
See the picture of the drum set? If I have the same size, I really need a bigger space at home. I want to do the renovation right now but the savings is not enough, so we need to wait patiently. I know for sure my dream will come true.
Just last week, I decided to use my savings to put up the awning type in the laundry area. It has been like years that I am planning to put one up but I always out of budget so last December, I tried to save up and was able to come up with an amount, I planned to just withdraw it on May but I realized summer is fast approaching and it would be so hot in our laundry area, my sister already have a hard time doing the laundry there how much more during summer. So I withdraw it and hired someone to do it and its worth it, sister is so happy with it, she doesn’t have to suffer anymore under the dreading heat of the sun.

Concern for the health of the environment is not a new concept, but it is one that is taking hold when it comes to remodeling existing homes. Below are a few ideas for adding a few environmentally friendly features to your kitchen space.
Incorporate Natural Lighting
Natural lighting is healthier and uses less electricity than artificial lighting. Consider adding skylights, when possible and adding wider windows. LED lighting uses less energy and provides better light, if it is not possible to increase natural lighting in your kitchen space.
Create Better Air Ventilation
Indoor air is considered to be twice as polluted as outside air. It is essential to find ways to bring fresh air into your kitchen. Incorporate some type of ventilation system that will offer a good air exchange when updating your kitchen.
Use Energy Star Appliances
Energy Star appliances have been tested and rated to use much less energy than other contemporary models. Saving energy is one of the best ways to help the environment. Energy Star rated appliances come in many styles and run as efficiently and powerfully as any other.
Avoid Stains, Paints and Products That Emit Toxins
Cupboards, countertops and flooring can all be coated or created with products that emit toxic substances, such as formaldehyde. Seek out products that are environmentally friendly and will not push out toxic substances that can be harmful to you, your family and pets.
Avoid Building a Kitchen Island
Rather than having a kitchen island built, try taking an old stand or dresser and place it on rollers. You can cover it with cutting board material and have the perfect kitchen island. It saves an older piece of furniture from ending up in the landfill. You will get the extra counter space and storage you need and feel great about it.
Re-purpose As many Items As Possible
Why buy brand new decor from the store when you can find used items for re-purposing? You can have a lot of fun exploring flea markets and thrift stores to find the right items for storage or decoration. You might even be fortunate enough to find older copper-bottom pans with original patina. It will be an attractive display item that your friends and family will love.

When we do renovations at home, we always tend to budget it all even the materials that we are buying and what do you expect if you will buy cheap materials, they also tend to give up few month after. So why would you put your home at stake for the cheap materials you bought. You’re in a tight budget yes, but then if you can’t afford it then save for it so when the time comes for renovation, everything will be fine and you don’t have to risk your home for those cheap materials.
Do not measure it yourself, of course measuring something in the house require a formula that I am not even expert of, I am not good in Math and if you are like me. Get some help!
Plan, do not just go to the battle without any plan, make it is well set so when you start your renovation, the result is with according to what you have imagine, especially the designs and styles otherwise after everything is done, you will find yourself in a deep hole, not knowing what to do or how to get out without making a mess of what you have started and done.
Use the correct tools, do not just mend yourself of what is available to your house, get or buy something appropriate tool based on the project you are working on. When your tool is wrong, everything will fall apart and instead of saving something up, it will end up ruining your budget.
