Home Owner Stories
I have lived in this house since I married my wife for about 9 years. My house, before built by the Indonesian Humanitarian Habitat Foundation was leaking, and the roof was mostly eaten by termites. I feel anxious to live here because my house is no longer suitable and I am afraid of collapsing.
I actually wanted to renovate my house, because of my economic condition so I couldn't repair it. My family and I go to my in-laws' house next to my house, after a while I also don't feel well. Especially if my friends come into this house and want to go to the toilet, I have to take them to my parents-in-law's house, it's really embarrassing.
If there are cockroaches and mice, you don't have to ask, there must be lots of them, so my house smells of cockroaches and mice.
My child is often fussy at night, maybe because of the smell. I do not dare to put food carelessly for fear of being eaten by cockroaches and mice.
Thank God I now have a new house that is also equipped with a bathroom and toilet, so I don't have to worry anymore if it rains it will leak and no longer defecate to my in-laws. My son is also happy because his new house, he said, is now cooler and no longer smells.
Thank you Falcon Light Brick and habitat for helping my desire to have a livable house.
