So about those floors…

I didn’t as much change my mind as revise my budget, and I’ve landed on a low price light oak parquet floor that I really liked. I liked it even better when I ended up almost 150 NOK lower per m² than with the pine.

The walls are a bit beyond spackling and painting, my handyman reckons someone had a bit to drink during the construction of my living room and kitchen cause not much is straight or done very well. I’m using painted panel plates on the walls. They are 6 mm thick and looks like tongue and groove wood panel and I love how they look already. The walls in the kitchen will be ready tomorrow, and then the floor goes down and my kitchen comes up.

 

It has begun…

So have I told you how great my mom is? I’m feeling like crap these days, and had to throw in the towel on organising the renovation and she just runs with it.

We’we been amazingly lucky that the handyman that did the demo turned out to be a great guy and incredibly competent and has agreed to do the majority of the building work for us. They (my mom and JH) have apparently finished painting the ceilings and prepping the floors today, and are starting on panelling the walls tomorrow. The kitchen has arrived from IKEA. We need a few more things but I’m hopefully we’ll enough to do a little shopping next week. Fingers crossed we’ll be done early December!
