In 2009, couple Adrian and Cherry found out that their son Bernard was afflicted with multiple carboxylase deficiency, a rare lifelong disorder. To take care of their son, Adrian and Cherry decided to quit their jobs and stay at home, where they make children’s clothing. However, the space needed a lot of work. Aside from the bare cement walls and floors, the house had an unfinished ceiling that became the home of noisy stray cats that left smelly waste.

Although the budget only allowed for a bedroom renovation, design consultant Grace Moslares of Magara Designs decided to overhaul the entire house. “If room lang, paglabas nila, magkakasakit din sila, It’s really unhealthy; they’re breathing fresh cement and dust,” she shares. With the help of engineer RJ Gutang of Probuilt Glazing Inc. and Crossings Home, Grace was able to transform the house in only two weeks.
