D-6 Our Home in Karachi

Our home in Karachi is almost ready. Its been almost about 4 months that my folks have been busy with the complete renovation of our Karachi house. The work was extensive and included slight structural changes and practically a 100% upgrade on everything else. That includes all electrical wiring, plumbing, sanitary fittings, windows, doors, marble flooring and then some more stuff.

The toughest part for them was to manage this work and make sure there’s a minimum exposure to being conned, since a lot of people in this business are out to make a quick buck (e.g. providing low quality materials, cheating and outright fraud). My father decided he would best address this by minimizing the scope of fraud by getting the materials himself and getting the work done and paid for in a phase by phase manner. This strategy added a lot of headache but greatly reduced the potential for heart-ache.

Finally, it is looking good and things seem to have fallen into place well, however, there are still some touch-ups and a final coat of paint that needs to be done. They plan to move in by the end of this month and Inshallah we’ll be checking it out when we go there mid-July this year. A few more pics here.

    Thanks! No, doesn’t look like the weather or the electricity situation is going to be too cool during that period in Karachi.

    Good post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I
    stumbleupon every day. It’s always interesting to read articles from other authors and practice a little something from other sites.
