Happy Easter!

Floor update...

And... our first small disappointment. We used a floor called Pandomo, and we were expecting something a lot smoother and shinier. It turned out to have a rough "matte" finishing, looking like fine cement. It's not bad, it's just... different! And surely it will look great once the furniture is assembled! Otherwise we'll have to buy lots of carpets! :-)

Work in progress - the floor!

Floor clean and ready for the first pass - a self  leveling cement.

And this is after the first pass - the cement is covered in fine sand to dry

Any similarities to a tropical beach are a pure coincidence.

Oh, and we have our heaters. And they are HUGE!

Work in progress - furniture!

Our furniture is being done by the company where I'm working, Ejsmont (,
and they sent us some pictures from their workshop!

How the flat looks like (don't be scared!)

Still an early work in progress... but the pieces of the puzzle have started to arrive!

How (we hope) the flat will look like!

Sliding door hides the kitchen!

Corridor with a pinboard wall to stick photos

Bedroom with a blackboard paint wall

The plans for our flat

This is how it used to look like...

And this is how it looks after the changes. Just a couple of walls knocked down to make the rooms bigger, and the rest is left the same way!
