new years resolution: keeping it tidy

cleaning4
We started the new year and the new site season with some cleaning and reorganization at the house. Martin (aka Adrian Monk) is a true beliver of organization and tidiness. And I think its contagious. I really fell for this idea as well. A tidy and organized workspace is so much more fun to work in/with. So my new resolution for 2014 will be: try to keep everything clean and organized (at least as clean as a site can be).

We reorganized our wooden panels and tools to finish our walls in the extension.

And finally removed all the plastic cover sheets and tapes which protected the wooden window frames during construction and wall rendering for the last few month. We used a TESA masking tape, which I can highly recommend. It didnt left stains on the wooden frames and was easy to remove.
Unfortunately I found a small but deep dent in the wood! oh noooooooo!
It’s directly at (my)eye level on the most used door (I assume thats why it’s there! all of the construction pieces and tools were brought into the house through this door) But I think I’ll try to repair it with wood filler. (hope it will turn out fine and I’m not making it worse!)

He’s keeping the spirits up! ♥
Take a look at our “naked” attic walls; now they are already plastered, I’ll share the photos in my next post.

I was proud as punch and happy as a lark to release the window from it’s covering sheets!
It felt really good to start the year with a white and tidy canvas!

  1. You’ve inspired me! Procrastination and not picking up after myself (and my home reno projects) are bad habits of mine… I need to do this more! Starting the new year with a white crisp canvas must be lovely! Your house is going to be AMAZING. I am obsessed with the tree window, is that on the upper floor or ground floor?

    • Hi Maya, thanks for your kind words!
      From your lips to god’s ears! I keep my fingers crossed and hope it will be as fantastic as I imagine it to be! (maybe it could work in a few month years as a housenerd home envy! would be a honor for us!

      I know I’m also in love with this amazing window! It’s in our upper floor (we are using the ground floor for all the technical stuff we need and as a storage for all the garden things; the upper floor will be our living room, kitchen, treeroom and bathroom; our bedroom will be in the attic). I’m planing to post some foorlayouts and blueprints of the house sometime soon!
      keep in touch! xo K
