My biggest apologies, for taking such a loooong blog break, but the days and weeks have just not been long enough. Also, I had to go to Florida. Life is tough :).
Just because I stepped away from the blog, does not mean the builders did. They have carried on in there and have done a ton. Thankful they are not as lazy as I am :). Perhaps not the most exciting or inspiring building phase to show (in comparison to getting that awesome outside all done). But I suppose its key with good prep before all the fun stuff like paint, kitchen, stairs all comes in place…
So, bare with me today and the “gray” construction pictures. Please don´t “un-subscribe” right away 😉
One detail we (well, I should say my husband) added is chip-boards (not sure if thats the right name in English/OSB in Swedish). We added on all walls behind the drywall/ sheet-rock. Creates stable walls and makes it super easy to hang up stuff and heavy things without problem (no need to look for studs anymore).
I might have mentioned it earlier, but I noticed that a wall was not straight (there is a build-out of some sort). Seems to be a miscommunication but at the end not something we had agreed on so Fiskarhedenvillan made sure it was corrected. Good we detected it early and great when incidents like this are solved smoothly.
Here is an updated pic from the wall corrected. I do prefer it like this.
Once the Sheetrock came up, you can really start imagining the finish product. The rooms look more spacious and lighter (that is what I have been told…:=) since I am not there in person to experience and follow it (sadly). The space above is also waiting for the stairs to arrive.
The guys are preparing and getting things ready for painting! And as you might remember, we are going for a very white white color on wall, trims and ceiling (code: NCS 0300N). Hope to show you it next week!
Another detail we added is the wood paneling ceiling upstairs. Hoping it will ad a “beachy” relaxed look and be more exciting to look at up there.
The bathrooms are also getting their necessary layers and attention. Tile are on there way. I decided on a very clean and simple bathroom, not going overboard here. Instead focusing on nice accessories & details to make it just right. This is the floor tile will chose,
That´s all from me today! Hope to see the house entirely painted in my “hospital” white sometime next week! Can´t wait. Now only 8 weeks before inspection, and I have to say – everything has run so smoothly up to this point so we are hoping it will continue like like this all the way to December!
Have a wonderful Friday & weekend!
