I know I already wrote Part 3 when we were still at my parents house but when we moved I forgot all about it besides moving in pala is not EASY. We still have loads of stuff left there and we couldnt yet figure out where to put it here, just when I thought the closets are enough haaaay. OPLAN GARAGE SALE na ito!!!
Anyway, since we havent hired a contractor for the whole house we need assurance in case something happened during or after the construction and a contract is valuable tool for that.

I got to tell you that this thing works, they work best when they sign something. And if you want scary stories since halloween is fast approaching I'll give you one.
One of our neighbors started contruction I think January when we started building ours theirs isn't finished yet. WHY? Because the contractor left them after they gave them the substantial amount to complete. Now they are finishing their house at an additional cost. It pays to have your contracts written, natatakot kasi sila pag may pinipirmahan feeling nila makukulong sila :D
