Our new home, under construction!

Dearest Nikoline,

A few days ago I moved into our new home, and with a little help from my friends, it’s finally starting to look like something. There is still a lot of work to be done, but I will do my best to finish it all before you move in. I’ll use this post to show you a bit of the work that has been done already. Take in mind that none of this is in it’s final state yet, everything is still in a ‘work in progress’ state.

The first thing i did was replace the dirty, fuzzy floor in the bedroom by a wooden one. Here’s a before (left) and after (right) photo. The bedroom wall had some minor cracks in it, and quite a few bad spots, so i completely redid one of the walls, and got rid of the smaller spots with a quick brush.

Next, I took care of the bathroom and kitchen. None of the lights were working, the shower doors couldn’t close, the toilet kept flushing and there were some minor problems with the ventilation system and electrical equipment in the kitchen. All of that, combined with a much needed cleaning of both places, resulted in the following:

The livingroom still needs the most work done, also due to the fact that the couch and curtains didn’t even arrive yet, the tv closet is far from finished and many of the pictures aren’t hanging yet. But a little sneak peak won’t hurt. Also notice my Tusenfryd skycoaster diploma in the background 😉

As you can see there is a lot of work to be done, and i will show you as soon as i get to it. Unfortunately days at work can be long and stressful, so housework won’t go as fast as I’d like it to. I can’t wait to give you a tour, and throw you a big welcome party here. Looking forward to seeing you again in 20 days. It’s really close now, but sometimes still feels like an eternity 😉

Miss you,

Love,

Rob

P.s. to conclude the post, our view of the sunset isn’t bad either 🙂
