Phase One Complete

Believe it or not, I think I’m done with the first part of the renovation! It only took how long? Three months? Not that I’m griping, it’s done and it’s done nicely. No fear of blowing out all my fuses, no ugly wires hanging out all over the place, no game of twister to be played with plugs and outlets. And I have a brand new, shiny floor!

It didn’t occur to me that I’d have to make a decision on grout for the newly tiled floor. Luckily, my architect did in a split second. Black grout – it will minimize any flaws in the placement of the tiles, as opposed to white or grey. It made all the difference in the world. The tiles look perfectly symmetrical and even, and it tamps down the excess shine of the glazed ceramic. I love it.

Phase two – cabinet installation – should be much more expedient. It’s supposed to take a week, but where have I heard that before? At least my apartment will be returning to a somewhat normal state with more space to move and my possessions back to their normal places. As a friend said when he came by this weekend, “How can you live like this?”
