QUICK UPDATE – NEW HOME EDITION

I am back, just reaching the surface for a quick breather before bed… I have the best of intentions these days, but all is hanging loose – new home, new business, old home, work… Who would have known fixing everything is a pain? The good part in it all is that we are finally seeing some sort of progress, I’ve spent 3 days at work, and not being able to be in the new apartment working my ass off has been grueling. I am heading back to work on thursday, this time for a four-day shift… And I am fearing this trip will be even worse, cos we have gotten to the fun part now – the painting! Or to be honest, the painting of the bedroom – we still have the livingroom and the diningroom to paint, then there are the floors in the entire upper floor of the place…

Then there is the endless list of things we need, to make it livable – we have been living two nomadic lives – moving from place to place for a lot of years, and this whole settle down thing is making us realize our main possessions (besides my photo equipment, his architecture books and our creature of fluff) is down to clothes, books and some candle sticks… Oh not to forget the things we like to hang on our walls…

Besides that we do not have a lot of physical value to bring with us to a new home. This does make the moving process quite simple, but the grocery list a whole lot longer and more pricey. So we have decided that our goal is to have a fully equipped home by new years – and by fully equipped we mean a place to sit at night, a place to sleep, a place to eat and a place to work. And we haven’t even spent a moment contemplating how much work we have to put in downstairs, we know what to do with the space we have to work with – we have a hallway for storage, a guest bedroom and a separate space outside the apartment that will be our joint office space…

Here are some images of what has been going down since the last time I posted, I do hope I’ll get a chance to surface long enough to splurge on an inspiration post soon – I need it right now! To get the creative juices flowing whilst all I want to do is lie down in fetus position and do the shrimp dance!

A part of me is going to miss these windows, a part of me is going to enjoy not having hotel guests looking into my bedroom…

We’ve had a lot of this weather when we’ve been moving cardboard boxes, then it turns into sun and heat wave when we need to stay inside working…

There has been a lot of back and forth, so with it follows a lot of city in movement imagery…

Minimalist kitchen!

We bought a lovely bed on saturday, it will be arriving at key sometime next week… Then we will move in finally – with the fluff and all – the fluff here being our dog. Can’t wait, I am quite tired of the whole back and forth thing… I’m off to my nirvana now, shower and sleep!
