And so the construction started. The ground was dug and we start to realize what was happening. Size wise though it is really confusing. When you have no walls the dimensions are messed up. You can’t really see it. So we were freaking out that we made it too small. For days and days. And yes we passed 2 times per day sometimes because the action has started and today we do have a house!
All this below happened in a day! It was madness. By lunch they had put two rows of bricks and when I visited in the evening there were walls higher than me! That’s the moment I really realized what was going on. It is a house and it might not be too small after all…
So I’ve never built anything, though I know it takes time. Then of course it depends who’s doing what and if it is a professional or not. And also in which country! I need to say, without knowing a whole lot of how to construct anything (well before this house I had not many clues) I must say the that our house is built fast, profesisonal and neat. Yes neat. Every time someone is done with their job they clean up around themselves.
My parents came to visit and they got to see the above, the following day we closed the house. Doors and windows are set.
Two first photos are from the front.
Below it is the living room and the bathroom window from the terass and the next picture is the garage from the side.
So now it is holidays and no more work. Also we had a small (actually big) problem with the window frames and so they will all be changed (no extra payment from our side of course).
The extra garage/ atelier
Meanwhile we have been building our extra garage. G and his dad have been, not we as in me 🙂 I did some digging though 😉
These views is from the south, the future terasse.
This is from the front. We are in the end of a small parc.
Tadaa! Soonish we will close up the openings here too.
Also some pictures from the parc. Or…our front yard if you wanna 😉 tehehe
Sooner than you think you can come and occupy one of our bedrooms!! 😀
