our house renovation, week 24

The stairway has been installed and we are super happy with it.

Kitchen progress

Hallway wardrobe doors have been installed

We have a sink in the hallway wardrobe - for cleaning dirty boots and hanging wet rain gear above.

Basement bathroom and laundry room progress. It is much darker than I expected it to be, but I like it.

Ground floor bathroom progress

General state of the basement living room (bathroom/laundry room to the right, stairway to the left). Assembling some IKEA Bestå shelves for the home cinema system.

Due to a construction fail, we are plastering and painting the dining table. Sølve is rather bummed about this, because he spent so much time sanding and oiling the table. But in the end, he decided to be fine with it. A white table works better with the white oiled oak floors.

The weekend weather was gorgeous, so we slowly started the process of getting the garden ready for a lawn. First task: remove rocks


  1. Oh Astrid, how everything is transforming...! I have a feeling, that this is going to be soooooo beautiful. I'm really looking forward to your pictures, when everything is "ready" The stairs and the kitchen look really great. I hope that you can move in soon with your family. Many warm greetings from Salzburg, Austria

  2. About the new table: why dont you consider the "kintsugi" japanese technique to restore it?
    see the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kintsugi
    it has such an interesting philosophy behind...
