Further dispatches from the building site

Hello! After publishing my last post about our current living situation I thought it might be nice to make a little series out of it to document the progress that’s being made. Given that tomorrow is a holiday and the builders will therefore not be coming, tonight seemed like a good time for another report as the state right now is what we’ll be living with on our day off work.

First I want to show you the sink I mentioned in my previous post:


Washing dishes is a pain, which is why we’ve been eating out a lot.

That pipe in the kitchen has now been enclosed, and today some cupboards appeared. Yay!

I mean, so far they have no door handles and don’t seem to be attached, but you’ve got to take what you can get.

Here are the bathrooms. Apparently they just aren’t going to bother removing the tiles in the second one. Whatever. As long as I don’t have to see them any more in all their 80s glory πŸ˜‰

The corridor is absolutely full of stuff, which I’m hoping means even more progress will be made on Thursday. (It also has no electricity so excuse the terrible lighting).

So, something has definitely happened since my last post but we still have a way to go. Here’s to the next few weeks going fast!

      1. Still. When they were doing plumbing stuff on our place in December I was on the β€˜if I don’t have a bathroom for the night, you can pay for my hotel room’ train.

      2. I wanted to get an apartment, at least for the first two weeks i.e. right now (which according to the building firm is the “worst part” and they advised us to go to relatives or on holiday) but Jan said nope, not unless they pay for it, which they won’t so I am stuck here! The shower part is actually okay… it’s more the dust EVERYWHERE and my corridor being an actual obstacle course that’s annoying me.

  1. It’s a good excuse to eat out πŸ™‚
    It’s an exciting time though, despite the inconvenience and the dust! I really enjoy getting stuck into diy and home improvements.
