Demolition and Building New Walls

Thought of I’d update you on why I am so busy lately…. These are the photos I took about a month ago, showing my new house renovation at the demolishing and re-building stage. The current stage has almost finished with tiling and plaster ceilings. Will update again soon if you would like to see the progress.

We bought this 2000+ square feet condominium early this year, with a combo living and dining space, 3 bed rooms and 2 small utility rooms, 4 bathrooms and 1 powder room, a wet kitchen and a dry kitchen (if you wonder why we have dry and wet kitchen, please read on), and a balcony overlooking a sport’s courtyard. 2000+ square feet for a family size of 4 and my kind of hobby, I wouldn’t say that it is “enough” space for us to live in. Having said that, I have to engage an interior designer to help me with a proper planning and design, hope that we can “create” more useful spaces to occupy.

After, 3 months of discussions, many meetings to finalize the design, we kicked-off the renovation work somewhere end of September. Basically, we have to tear down a few walls and convert the unit the way I like and hopefully will utilize all the spaces as much as possible. A proper cabinet system in order to store my huge quantity of craft tools and materials apart of the basic household items.

I really missed my usual routine between family, craft and work; I knew I am going to be super busy this time of the year, and it really occupied me more then I thought it would be. Hope that I can settle down in my new home early next year, with my new craft room and sewing room…. YAY! Will keep you all update about the progress!!!
