Me and the husband are almost done building the house — we’re down to finishings! And while “tradition” would ordain that the man gets dibs on discussing the grade of hollow blocks and steel girders with the architect/contractor, I have been on the ground doing that for the last 6 months.
I have become intimate with the lay-out of Wilcon, MC Home Depot and Ortigas Home Depot. Sales people there call me by my first name. I can tell the size of angle valves by sight. I have an opinion on what pressure tank would work best for our needs. I use thousand-peso architectural terms like “porte cochere” and “soffit” in conversations!
I am enjoying my passing curiosity in plumbing fixtures, electrical supplies and masonry options. Tonight, I search for the perfect hinged floor drain. Yay!
