Well, it has been a while since I last blogged, mainly because I haven’t been doing much apart from growing a big baby in my belly which is soon to pop. However, we can now officially say that all structural work upstairs is complete! It actually has been done for months but I have been lazy, I have had a lot of requests to share the progress, so here we go.
We have a lot of styling stuff still to do it is a bit stark and sterile right now so things like artwork, rugs, cushions, finishing off the kitchen island and also some new furniture. Still I will stick with Scandinavian Minimalism but there is still much more character to add. But what you can see is that the build is complete. Including moving the kitchen, removing walls, new windows etc etc.
The house has been revalued and having just finished the top floor, we have significantly increased the value by 1 000 000SEK. This is around 5 times our renovation investment.
Right now, we have moved our bedroom upstairs and set up for the little one in the room that was formally the kitchen. Later on, this will be turned in to a guest bedroom/playroom and we will move into our master bedroom downstairs.
For now though, we have other focuses and Fredrik’s attention is turning to the Garden as Summer approaches. So there is still going to be progress!
Once the styling is done, I can make a before and after video and show some more detail shots. It is just a slight change….
Wall to the left knocked down and a few other improvements…
The door and window replaced… walls knocked down to make space for open plan living/dining:
These walls removed to make way for the kitchen…
The old kitchen in its previous location has now become a bedroom.
The landing at the top of the stairs is completely changed. Will share better photos once the stairs are done!
