Homeowner Grace Lucas has lived in the same compound in Villamor Airbase since she was born. She now shares a tiny home with her husband Miguel and their three children. Since their shared space was too small for a family of five, they eventually decided to build an extension for the house.

However, the couple was forced to stop construction when the property was hit by a fallen sampaloc tree during Typhoon Milenyo. The new wing was left severely damaged and the homeowners felt disappointed and frustrated. To improve their living conditions and provide them with a place that would fill them with unbridled joy, decorator and former Real Living creative director Gwyn Guanzon stepped in.

(A few years after this home makeover, it was Grace's turn to lend a helping hand to Gwyn. When Gwyn's father slipped into a coma in their hometown in Antique, Grace arranged for him to be airlifted to a hospital in Quezon City. The interior decorator is grateful for her kind assistance. - ed.)
