Feeling Blue ...



As you can see we take the new color hype of 2009 very serious and have started to paint everything blue ...

Anyway, just a heads up we will be publishing a major review of where we are soon as we do understand it looks a little bit fragmented for the once in a while bypasser ...

Getting Ready

A bad day ...

Yesterday was surely a bad day as everything related to bath tubs seemed to go wrong ...

We spent a large part of the day picking up our new bathtub only to realize when it was blocking the hallway the wrong model was delivered. Frustration Level A and our everlasting PM was on the phone with Bauhaus in minutes ... an agreement is in the making.

Bad part 2. The Hot Tub (also a bad) is now officially connected to the wires and declared safe by the electrician. However, now the damn thing is throwing one error after the error since it was switched from 1 phase to a 2 phase system. Rest assured our PM will tackle this one too, but would be great to officially take a dip on my birthday :-)

So bad bath day ... lets hope painting and co is going nicer today ....

Snowstorm ...



We had to buckle up our new Master Bedroom to protect against the wind ...
Good old Dylan had a point when he said the answer was blowing in the snowstorm.

Flash !

Quick Status Update.

We are making good progress, and the works are going ahead.
The blocking factor is just me and getting picz online :-)

And maybe worth to do a working glog one of the weekends so some of you can have a real sneakpeak on the building progress.

Let us know your thoughts !

X10



Guess what arrived today ... :-)

Still didn't find a local X10 shop in Sweden, so we do trust the Belgians to ship to the outskirts of Sweden the Marmitek stuff :-)

A Box of Chocolates ...

Rebuilding is like a box of chocolates, you never know which one to take :-)

Anyway, today we had one of those days were we ran from shop to shop, trying to decide on small things like the light in the hallway, the light above the mirror in the bathroom, the inner doors or even the shower doors ...

Nothing is easy, and choosing between all the chocolates is surely a tempting endevaour. We even took a sidewalk into Mio and had a look at Coffee and Co

If you ask me Ikea will win the bathroom race, but loose Klippan against Mio ...

Anyway, for you dear visitor, we will start a new category or call it labels, where we will focus on brands and where to get them (did we tell you the Bauhaus Experience already ?)

Ohhh, and last but not least, we kind of agreed on a knee high chocolate carpet in the walk in closet ...

The Bathroom Wallz



Did I mention we got lovely tiles aka kakel ?

Connected !



Yes, this is not some optical illusion, we are now connected and our front door has officially moved :-)

The last two, three weeks have indeed been a gigantic leap forward, and just today we spent all day with cleaning outside and allthough we should have taken some picz (wonderfull autumn feeling today) we actually concentrated on cleaning, cleaning, cleaning .... and so hopefully we have the same nice weather tomorrow and we get you some great picz !!!

Bubbles Inside

Yesterday we bought our bathtub .... things are moving ahead :-)
Now we still need to decide on surf ...

Rosa, Rosae, Rosarum ...



Today we bought 3 outer doors and they all listen to the wonderfull name of Rosa
Delivery time should be just before Xmas ... keeping fingers crossed.

And cheeezzzz .... outer doors are expensive, even in white ;-)

Two Weeks Later ...



Lots has been happening in RL both on our XHM workplace and in our Second Life which makes it took us a while to get our XHM blog updated ... but this weekend we will give you a full update :-)

Two weeks ago we went from the Stone Age into the Wooden Era and started to build the house ...
Right now we even have one side of the roof with new "tegel" or "dakpannen" and they are black.

We ordered the doors, we ordered the ceramics and tiles for the bathroom, we decided on the tub (no bubbles) and lots more ... so stay tuned.
