The next home improvement project on the agenda (after finishing the project Stairway and Storage Renewal) was the reorganization the other storage facilities in the basement. The starting point of this area looked like this: Picture to the left: overview of storage area, looking towards storage room III; Picture to the right: looking the opposite direction towards the laundry room with a glimpse of storage room I to the right … Continue reading

Stairway and Storage Renewal (part 2)

Storage area 1 026

Practically finished and ready to reveal I started this project in April 2010 with a declaration of war on procrastination. Well, the race was a bit closer than I had hoped, but at least I got the area from looking like the picture on the left to the picture on the right, so who cares that it took 6 months instead of 3 weeks?

Now our house has five bedrooms, two home offices, a den in … Continue reading

When we were househunting, in Norway back in 1997, I knew it the moment we walked into the house; that we had found our new home. I suspected our friends and family thought we had lost our marbles, buying a house labeled “a renovator’s dream” with a baby on the way and no handyman tendencies to speak of, and perhaps they were right. Fortunately for us I am an architect … Continue reading
