WOW

Sasha - September 3, 2008

The last week I’ve been in Ibiza trying to escape the craziness of this project but my contractor rang me with an 11th hour request for the dimensions of this, the bedroom wall. So there I sat on my summer holiday, trying to ‘draw’ in a Word document in a hot and sticky internet cafe….

Now that I’ve got that off my chest, the week since my last post has seen the most dramatic progress on the apartment. As always I walked upstairs with some trepidation (always worried that I’m going to walk in and something major has been built off-plan), but was struck by the amazing space:

The ceiling is now in, and I think that’s really contributing to the feeling of space somehow. My feeling on the bedroom wall is that it’s a little high, so I’m thinking about bringing it down a smidge. Any thoughts or comments please post a comment!

Here you can see the laundry and toilet (that’s a defininte WOW…[ahem…]):

The bathroom:

…and the Study:

Most of the wiring has been done, the plumbing is almost finished. I’m due to get the kitchen in a matter of weeks and I’m promised that the keys will be turned over by the end of the month.

Biggest worries right now:

- DETAIL!
- are the bathroom tiles the right colour?
- budget: yikes!
- where is that expensive shipment of bathroom materials?
- what height should the bedroom wall be?
- have I missed anything here?

Excuse the slightly neurotic tone of this post; those who have been through this will know exactly what I’m talking about…

If you have any ideas of things I need to think about, please give me a yell it would be most appreciated.

  1. Don’t lower the bedroom ceiling. High ceilings are almost always good. This is looking really great. Can’t wait to see more!
