Ever since I was a child, I have always loved houses. I appreciate each house I visit, and at a very young age, I became aware that some houses are nice, whilst some would need some ‘TLC’ and maintenance work. Since then, I have decided that the time will come when I would be designing houses that people will get to call as their homes. Fast forward to so many years later and I am living my dream. I am designing houses for a living and I can never be happier.
Some people might think that house designing is an easy task, but I actually have to consider a lot of things before I can start designing.
- The design that the owner wants should always be taken into consideration. I may choose to give suggestions on how to make the design better, but it would still depend on the owner and how he or she would like the house to look like.
- The size of the lot will also matter in designing houses because some house designs are better for big houses while others will fit well in small lots.
- The budget of the owner would also have to be considered to know the proper materials that can be used to still make the house look its best even with a limited budget.
These things are just some of the things that I have to think about every time I meet with a client. I also make sure that I am able to answer all of the questions pertaining to how the house would be made. Over the past years, I have integrated a lot of eco -riendly houses that will help the environment better. Technology has made it possible for those items to be available. Admittedly, there was a time when I became too busy with the things that I had to do, that I forgot how to live healthily.
There was even a time when I did not care how I looked. A friend pointed out though that I was too focused on making houses that are good for the environment, but I exposed my body to food items that are not good for my body. His point made me think and realize that I should start taking care of my body and I did that through the Paleo Diet.
The Paleo Diet is also known as the caveman diet. This probably pertains to the type of food that will be eaten. One way to know if the food product can be eaten is to think if that type of food was available to cavemen in the past. If it was not available, it should not be eaten. Through this diet, I was able to sort out the food products that I should and should not eat. I started going with my wife to the grocery store just to pick the right food products. Not only did I start seeing some changes easily, I realized that I was able to move more. I can go to clients easier and I know that I am never going back to the type of lifestyle that I had before.
The thing with the Paleo diet is that it is not similar to the other diets that we can find right now wherein we can just stop with the diet and go back to our old lifestyle. This diet is something that can be done for life. It is like a choice. Given the chance to be healthier, why not choose this, right? I honestly think that I am living the life I have always dreamed of living thanks to my job and the lifestyle I have right now.
