Achieving a Dream Home


At 25 years old, single mom Elle Magno became a proud homeowner of a simple bungalow. “I didn’t want to keep on renting because it’s more expensive and at that time, I wanted a stable environment for my daughter,” she shares.

Determined to turn the compact home into a welcoming space, Elle took her time in revamping the property. Now 31 years old, the mom learned how important it is to have a plan before working on a renovation, hiring a trusted professional, and enjoying the journey.

An Empty Lot Transformed into a Lush Garden


Empty spaces hold a ton of potential – whether it’s an unused area inside the house or a lot outside a property. Single mom and businesswoman Raquel Young purchased a lot before the lockdown in 2020 and never bothered with it until the country was put under enhanced community quarantine.

Raquel’s initial plan of just cleaning up the lot became a full-blown outdoor makeover as she started cultivating her own vegetable garden. She made sure to plant fruits and vegetables so that they don’t have to purchase these in supermarkets. After planting these, she focused on adding flowers, vines, and shrubs. Raquel also made sure to incorporate lounge and living areas within the property.
