Hose tap

There it is. Sticking out since this wall still needs a layer of insulation covered by thin bricks. Sometime.

This wall is the driveway / court side of the farthest building, what will be the kitchen and dining room.

Clothes bar

Between cabinet and wall we installed a curtain rod to serve as clothes hanger, to air clothes. Later I'll hang another bar for a curtain in front of it.

We also did errands (ordering some marble, swatches for curtains), garden work, and started installing a hose tap outside. Cement curing so images tomorrow.

Rubble &

Today we had a 12 m3 container brought. About half of the rubble and crap we found in the kitchen double ceiling fitted in it. So we'll have to get another one soon.

Pim and his dad had 7h to fill it up, tidily so that most would fit.

I haven't been posting much. Three main reasons:

1. Most importantly, since the move our productivity has decreased, due to being a bit saturated, sense of urgency gone, it being winter (I think last winter the same happened, I thought it was the cold, but the house is now cozy, so perhaps the darkness), and it's actually difficult to do things when it's already full of furniture and stuff.

2. Even what we do, I don't take many pictures (re: darkness).

3. Lamest of all, blogger app stopped working so there wasn't a straightforward way for me to post pictures from my phone. I just installed Blogaway, let's see how that goes. Edit: great!

It took us a long time to decide which wall  lamps to get for the bedroom and bathroom.

We finally decided, ordered them, received them and installed them today.

The bedroom lamps are dimmable and the led light bulbs are awesome, particularly when dim. They have this crown of prisms thing going on.

The first floor is getting closer and closer to completion!

An intermezzo

Because everyone loves before and after pictures, right? I didn't get the angle exactly right, both sets were taken with different phones. The old pictures were taken on our first visit to the house (with the real estate agent).

I forgot a cleaning rag in the washbasin, let's say it looks lived-in ;)

Some things are in store. More soon.

PS: the bathroom is not finished, but it is indeed the most finished room in the house.
