Sorry .. just had to ;)


Anyhow, we're on the move from our small 24m² condoe to one little more than three times as big. So, in order to get as much as posible out of the sale of this one, we decided to sharpen up the place.
This kind of (understatement) explains my lack of posting the past month+

1st thing to do: The Kitchen... ^^

*** EDIT ***
Found a perfect pic of the disastrous kitchen pre 'smash-it-all-and-rebuild-'.... ^^´

Did I mention our house was built in 1884?


Lookie here, cupboard no more!
And that gas meter will soon be history!

Look, it's gone!
Scraping, scraping .. and some filling of the gaps I caused ..

While attacking that corner by the pipes, I *accidentally* scraped through to the old brick work.. and decided to do something with it instead of filling it up ;)

And some color...

I decided black tiles (5x10cm) would look classy enough:

Some cut up pieces to add to the cut away places by the old bricks:

Starting to get a grip on what's coming:

Some more filler for the mosaic places:

And finally the top filler coat inbetween the tiles. Go me!:

The new gas stove arrived earlier this week and was installed yesterday.
Next on my to do list is to fix the cupboards under the sink which I had to trash in order to have the gas pipes redrawn:

In an hour, I'm taking our cats to live with one of my collegues for the remainder of the 3 weeks we still live here. It's going to get messy as h3ll, so... ^^

More to come... :cool:



***Edited / updated a few hours later ...

Leaving the cats went as could have been expected. Sparks (Tussen) have already settled in and is racing the vast spaces in his 'new home' and Camilla will from what I could tell be quite busy petting him.
Furrball (Lurvas) .. well, he spent the better part of the evening under the sofa, but at least he let me pet him and take him out of there twice.
When I left, he had escaped to the (covered) litter box. Not yet used I might add. Luckily ... ^_^; Ah, well... Sparks'll lure him out when the time comes.

Right, the new stove...

Here it is, not yet cleaned up and not installed electricity wise:

Tonight I exchanged the too short black cord with a new poseable white one:

Tomorrow I'll begin to tackle the "chassis/cupboard" under the sink...:

So .. what's Catta doing during all this?
Well, she's playing Guild Wars, of course... :wub:

I'm hungry ...

Got home at 7:45 pm, had 2 sandwiches and begun measuring and sawing at about 8:45. Finished the *noisy* stuff by 9:45 (outside; loud as hell that machine saw... ^^) so I bet I'm popular with the neighbours ... :dry:

Well, anyhow .. here's the result of today's work:

http://www.gkjapan.com/gallery/files/1/3/DSC03196_.JPG

I'm counting on being done with the sink part by sunday, so stay tuned.

Did I mention I forgot to have dinner?

hungry ... *mumbles to myself* ..

Ceiling masked off and painted white:

Started working of the wall cabinet .. turned out the back wall is leaning backwards about 2-2,5° which makes things .. well, interesting.

http://www.gkjapan.com/gallery/files/1/3/DSC03239_.JPG Comparison to what it looked like b4: http://www.gkjapan.com/gallery/files/1/3/DSC00762__thumb.jpg (http://www.gkjapan.com/gallery/files/1/3/DSC00762_.JPG)
You may notice the increasing gap at the left side by the back against the wall...


I'm counting on being able to finish the kitchen by saturday night with the exception of the wooden trim by the floor.

Cabinet done, pipes covered and gas pipe painted gloss black.

http://www.gkjapan.com/gallery/files/1/3/DSC03242_.JPG


Left to do: touch ups paint wise, trim along the sink/floor, trim along the walls/floor.
I'm also waiting for some handles for the cabinet door + the sliding cabinet door under the sink.
They ended up being OOP and only one IKEA had'em left in stock. Luckily for me I have a pal living in that city, so he's buying a pair for me this weekend.

Now I'm off to see my kitties for the first time in 2 weeks... :cry: How I long for them...
