our house renovation, week 2

We have been through a lot of renovations, but this is the first time we have rented a digger. 

To say it's a big project would be an understatement.

The front stairs had to go - because of the drainage work.

No plans for these rocks yet, but it will be pretty.

Our Friday date took us to new hights. In other words, we went stairs shopping. (I had no idea stairs are so expensive!) 

Saturday fika by the plum tree. Hopefully it will look even more idyllic in some months when the heaps of gravel, rocks and soil are gone.

My weekend task: separate rocks from soil (på norsk kalt solling).

Not much happening down here yet; need to finish the drainage around the house first. But at least the holes for the new big windows are finished.

Storage room

Big, big heaps of rock and soil everywhere!

Part of the weekend work: moved several small bushes and plants plus started building a small stone fence.


  1. Bøyer meg i støvet - er dypt imponert over folk som rekker/orker å gjøre noe annet enn å ta igjen det tapte av klesvask og gressklipping når helgen kommer. Jeg skjønner ikke hvor tiden og energien kommer fra.. Masse lykke til videre og god helg!

  2. Wow!
    That I call huge project!

  3. Oh my god! That's a lot of work. Do you guys ever sleep???
    You are very brave!
