Update on the Dream Loft: We've come a long way...

It's been a while since my last post regarding our dream loft project.

Finally, it's beginning to feel as if we're really past the worst "rubble-dirt-and-chaos" state!

Here's a reminder of what we started with and what's been going on over the last couple of months  (mainly... tearing down walls, erecting new ones, stripping off wallpapers, ripping out floor boards, installing the insulation, electric wiring and sanitary piping, plastering the walls...) :

Ready to take a virtual tour of where we stand today? (see after the jump)

Step inside... 
(the new staircase hasn't been fitted in yet, hence the hallway 
has no entrance door so far). 

The guest bathroom ahead.
To the right is the dining room/living room,
to the left the open kitchen.

Well, that's how far we've come. Next will be installing the floor screed and then adding the 
fine plaster to the walls. Hopefully, by end of April we can start with the
"fun part" (adding the "nice" things, like the oak floor and the stone tiles.)


  1. Wow, that looks all very impressive and huge. No wonder you call it your dream loft project. I'm sure it's gonna be amazing once everything is done. Good to see you are past the worst, I hope. I feel like living in a whole compared to your beautiful house and it's not even done yet HAHA.

  2. looking like its coming along well! cant wait for the final product.
