Champion bowler Biboy Rivera lived in an old, cluttered condo unit within his family’s property. After living there for over a decade, the athlete, travel consultant, and entrepreneur decided to renovate his condo. The original layout was kept, but the dated unit was plagued with many structural issues – uneven walls, leaky pipes, and poor carpentry. And so he sought the help of IDO Contracts who provided topnotch carpentry, plumbing and electrical work, as well as customization of some pieces of furniture.

After all the repairs were made, Biboy’s next major concern was building enough storage solutions for his place, without sacrificing design and aesthetics. With the help of his contractors, his unit was fitted with ample storage solutions using woode laminates that was streamlined and blended in with the modern, updated look he wanted for his condo. The new cabinets and shelves provided Biboy enough room to store his essentials, and at the same time, prompted him to downsize his belongings.

Biboy’s updated condo unit is befitting of his personality as an athlete and coach who is organized and forward-thinking.
