empty house

We worked so hard the last week… had several night shifts scheduled to be ready for the floor fill we are waiting to get. First there will be a levelling layer for bringing all the different heights to one level and it also works as a thermal insulation layer. On top of that we are going to lay our floor heating system (I’m curious if we can manage to do this on our own… we will see in a few days! .. hahaha. always sticking to my naive construction-world-view!)
First we needed to cover all the wooden walls (at least on the floor to prevent the fill floor taking over in the wooden construction).

As well as we needed to make the basic electicity works: installing all the cable-pipes where they should lead to and pulling the cables through those channels. (I worked hard with my cousin Robert on the weekend! Thank you Robert for beeing extra patient with me as I’m not a electrician and for your great work!)… although this (photo below) looks much more like a fancy art object than a (almost) working electicity supply!

The wooden box is where our shower will be (installed so that the fill floor doesn’t go underneath the shower).

Today I want to share a very special little madame with you all.
Take a look at this cutie! It grew in my tree! hahaha…
I saw it right about a time when my motivation was somewhere below 0 and I was thinking that every energy I’m spending according to the treehouse is not worth it.  But sometimes little signs (yes I’m superstitious!) like this help you to keep your head out of the clouds and tell you to go on.. because a pull back is no solution (and not possible anymore)!

Have a great weekend! (and look out for some signs of encouragement along your way!)

Ladies and Gentleman, it’s about time for another beloved time flies post!
Take a look at this!
Roughly one year after I took the first photo… and eight month after we “really” started with the renovation… a lot has changed! don’t you think!?

(I know I sound like a broken record … but it’s so true… many hands make light work)
