So, my new place is coming along nicely ! Prayerfully we will be able to get the key by end of this year. Than it will be renovation , renovation.....
So, this is the outside. For the bold and daring, the purple will make it a landmark in itself. The conservative will cringe at the colour!
Pic on the left : This is about the length of my dry kitchen. Made sure the picture's bottom border was at the edge of where the kitchen tiles started! Having some grand thoughts about the sink being at the window, cabinets on the left and thinking of a bar table to split the kitchen and the dining!
Pic on the right is the living room and the stairs (note the miniture store room under the stairs!).
The little part of the wall next to the stairs makes a cool corner for something! Hmm...
And above left is the wet kitchen!
Also tried to take the picture so that I can remember the number of tiles that make up the length of the place! I reckon it will fit a L shape cement top! But it does look like the washing machine has been predestined to be there!
Now...wonder how I am going to squeeze the cooking and the washing machine here! Unless I get a front door washing machine.
But the cooker will have to be where the windows are. Else reckon my kids will never get fried food from mummy's kitchen!
And at the other end of the wet kitchen is the downstairs bathroom (pic above right). Originally was thinking of putting my washing machine in here! But doesn't look like there will be space!
Why do I keep thinking of my washing machine!
This is the downstairs bedroom.
While I was pregnant, I was thinking that this room will belong to my son if I get a daughter the next time round! But now when I think about it....I don't think I want Christopher to be 'banished' downstairs! Wonder what I can do about this! The downstairs room is quite large actually!
The landing and the 2nd room! Originally (master planner me) I wanted to make a wall high bookcase on the wall facing the staircase....but didn't expect the floor space to be so tiny! They shouldn't have called it s 'family room' !!! Don't think any of the family wants to gather there!!!
The 2nd bedroom is also very long actually. I am taking the picture from the entrance of the room! But it does seem rather dark at the entrance of the room!
If I have 2 boys, there will both share this room until one of them makes some 'noise'!
So, fellow bloggers....do you know any good and not so expensive contractors?
What is your experience in furniture shopping?
What about kitchen cabinets and kitchen tabletops?
And especially.....where do you think I should put that damn washing machine?
