LOOK: Rufa Mae Quinto shows parts of nearly-finished home
Rufa Mae Quinto proudly gave a glimpse of her home that continues to undergo renovation amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Ito yung bahay namin sa Pilipinas na uuwian namin kapag pwede ng umuwi,” she said in her Instagram post yesterday, Sept. 2.
(This is our house in the Philippines which we will come home to once we can return home.)
Quinto is currently staying in the United States with her husband Trevor Magallanes and their daughter Alexandria.

Ito yung bahay namin sa Pilipinas na uuwian namin kapag pwede ng umuwi. Imagine habang pandemic , nag papagawa ako ng bahay , habang Andito ako sa malayong lugar, sa America, andyan yang lock down , ✋ stop 🛑 close ,open , ecq, mcq, gcq , etc…. pero sa awa ng Diyos , Pa tapos na ang bahay, naitawid ang Lahat . Kaka miss … pero wait wait Lang… Todo na to! Go go goals 🏡 god will provide amen 🙏 ito din yung katas ng labor of love ❤️ Ito din ang isa sa dahilan Bakit miss na miss ko ang Pilipinas Salamat sa kuya ko @chi_q for doing everything and for planing , he is my contractor o diba ? Family business din kasi namin constructions 🚧 🔨 ! We can do this together yahoo!
Quinto’s post featured a balcony and what appears to be a bathroom designed with marble and white tiles. She also expressed her gratitude to God for being able to work on the house despite the quarantine measures in the Philippines.
“[P]ero sa awa ng Diyos, [patapos] na ang bahay, naitawid ang [l]ahat,” Quinto said.
(But thanks to God’s mercy, the house is almost finished, everything was accomplished.)
Though Quinto misses her home here in the country, she stated that she has to wait for now and focus on her “go go goals.” The actress added that the house is a labor of love and is one of the many reasons why she really misses the Philippines.
Along with the said home, Quinto revealed last October that she and Magallanes are also working on a house in America, where Magallanes is based.

Quinto met Magallanes during one of her trips to the U.S. After becoming a couple, they flew back to the Philippines in January 2016.
Months after, they tied the knot in November of the same year at a posh events place in Ortigas City. They welcomed Alexandria back in February 2017. JB
