Looks Almost Liveable

Sasha - August 3, 2008

Well, I survived the demolition, but note that there is still a lot of rubbish around the place and I guess more to come as things are refined.
I have wires hanging from the ceiling and a contractor on my back to provide lighting and final lighting plans.
The stress of it all!

I’ve finished planning the bathroom now - the most stressful space to plan after the kitchen. What I’m realising here is that the level of detail is astonishing. You don’t just buy a new bath - you pick colour, size, style, think about placement to the nearest millimetre, order all associated parts, concealed parts (what size do I need?!).

Step and repeat for each and every feature of your apartment. Get the idea? (wouldn’t give it up for the world though :))

As far as the work goes, the biggest surprise has been knocking down the study wall, which really opens up the whole apartment space. I stood there in awe for about 5 minutes when I first saw it:

The walls have been concreted for extra stability now, and in a matter of weeks the walls and ceiling will be ‘closed up’ (ie plaster, etc.):

Here you can see the view of the soon-to-be bedroom with entrance to the bathroom:
