    This was how the house looks like with all those vegetation.

    Now this is how it is with the vegetation removed.

    Not all the plants that I potted survived. The calamansi is trying hard to survive.

    The first plant that I planted was the two pineapple plants that I dug up from my old place.

    The backyard was concreted and we are going to extend the kitchen outwards. The current size of the kitchen is miserably small.

    There are more of these indoors and still more in Becky's mum's place.

    The whole house have grills which is a very common practice here to keep the bad people out. We never had grills in our old place and we wanted to remove them. After staying with grills for a couple of weeks, we are getting used to it. :) It is costly to remove them too!!!

    Glad you found your camera KK. I can see why you were anxious to get rid of all that overgrown vegetation. Looks like now you have a nice sunny spot for your mini-farm. Glad you're getting the plants and yourself and Becky settled in the new home.
    Looking forward to seeing how everything progresses.

    Looks like you have been really busy. Your yard looks so much bigger with the plants removed. Looks like a great place for your garden. Can't wait to see how you develop it. :stew1:

    You've made quite a difference to your outside space KK. It looks much better now with all the weeds and unwanted plants removed. It seems twice the size it was in your first photograph. Well done. :-D

    You have a nice clean slate now. Can't wait to see how you make it your own.

    Thanks Cherylad, my mind is now filled with ideas on how to organize the mini-farm but I am still a bit blur…
    Thanks Jewell, everything is getting exciting now.

    Thanks Eileen, still trying to figure out what goes where???

    Thank you Koszta Kid.

    Thanks Barb, the pics will definitely be incoming.

    Thanks Donna S, keeping my fingers crossed that the nut grass did not sneak in here with me. :D

    Thanks Philip, I need all the space I can get but I need to make sure to stay true to what our aim is – Downsizing. :) I will be spending more time doing my mini-farm from now because the renovation will be done by the contractors. If I feel up to it maybe I’ll do the electrical and the painting but I don’t think so because I’ll take a long time. :D

    Thanks for the foto's KK.
    Remarkable move and changes that you have made already. What a lot of work you have done and still will do.
    I remember that many folks use grills on their houses (and losdmen). I can understand the need, but I always had a bit of a feeling that I was "locked-in", y'know. I hoped that I would be able to get my travel mate and self out in case of a fire. Hahaha.
    Oh, I have slept in some doozies for places in my travels.

    I can recall that in some places where I stayed that did not have grills, we would have to devise exotic "alarm" methods that would alert us if someone tried to creep into th4er room during the night.
    It was a bit of a hassle, but I was raided during the night.

    Ach...but I digress...your new crib is looking very nice and once you get the inside sorted and the garden laid-out...you will feel like you are in Heaven on earth. :)

    Continued good luck, mate.

    Hi KK, I enjoyed seeing the pics of your new home. I know you'll love working inside and out to make it your own. Very nice. Glad you found the camera. It's always fun to unpack and re-discover all those packed possessions!

    Thanks for posting photos of your humble abode. ;-) It looks wonderful! I'm so looking forward to seeing your garden once you get it done the way you want it. I know how it is to try and get used to a new home. I found I just had to take time getting used to it, and then we could start changing what didn't work for us.

    Thank you Sjoerd. I share the same feeling as you about the grills and sometimes I feel like a prisoner in my own home :D After coming to terms with the grills, it would be quite difficult to get a good night sleep without them I guess.
    It must have been quite an irritating experience about the raid and I'm quite sure what they were looking for ... something to fill their pockets!!!

    Thanks Kay.

    Thanks Droopy, we are still waiting for the next part to start when the contractor starts on the renovation to make our new home comfy.
