Undergoing Home Improvements

There are still a lot of home improvements that we need to do in our house. Our bathroom needs a total repair plus we need to install a new tilt and turn window . We are planning to replace our old kitchen set hopefully next year. In five years maybe, our roof needs a replacement also. We are just doing all these home improvements from time to time when finances are available.

we had a hard time during winter season especially when it is snowing hard. hopefully next winter, snow cleaning is not that hard anymore. we are currently building a garage for our cars. This was taken last December 2010.

We are currently building a garden terrace and a carport or I would say a garage. Actually these two are adjacent to each other. We found this project a priority especially during winter time. Since we don't have a garage it is very difficult for our two cars to stay outside in open air. Sometimes when you wake-up early in the morning during winter time, everything is already covered with snow. It needs more time and energy to clean it.

all the plants and flowers were gone now. This garden will be the garage. All the plants and flowers were transferred to the former parking lot. It is our new garden now.

The highlight for this year's home improvement is the terrace. I can't wait to sit on a coffee table that I am planning to buy. Since the garden terrace is huge enough, probably around 30 square meters, I am also planning to put rustic garden furniture in there.

I was asking hubby if everything will be finished before my birthday comes in August. If not, it is still fine for me. Thanks to hubby for all the patience and diligence in working on it.


Old Bathroom

Where is sunshine? Autumn time is slowly coming now. The weather last week was not so friendly again except for Sunday. Yesterday was a better one because we had a bit sunshine. Last Monday, me and hubby went to the nearest hardware and furniture store to look for something and bought some stuffs for finishing our new energy-saving windows. We also tried to look for bathroom furniture. Hubby said that for sure next year, we will renovate our bathroom and kitchen. It would be a total renovation for both because they are quite old already and some furniture are already dilapidated.

I am also looking online for bathroom and kitchen ideas. I would love to have some modern styles when we can afford it. It might be expensive if we hire someone to do all the renovation but hubby said that he will do it himself. As usual, I will be again his assistant. In this way, we can save some bucks of money. It is like the same with our new windows. We did all the dismantling and installation and we save thousands of Euros from it. Lastly, thanks to Better Bathrooms for sharing some ideas about bathroom stuffs. They have a lot of nice bathroom furniture and accessories. I love especially their whirlpool baths and Roll Top & Freestanding Baths. We will see which one will fit our budget next year. I am happy that at least we are starting to renovate our old house now especially when financial matters are available.

Sunshine is finally here! I want to go outside to breath some fresh air in our garden! Have a great day everyone!
