Being in a new home
For the past the month or so I have been moving to another location. After a couple of months of renovations, some not so pleasant experience with all kind of building materials, paints, cables, internet and cable TV providers, etc. etc. I’m almost through all this.
In that light my blog roll morning reading has grown with one more section – all kinds of blogs that are related to a) organizing home space, b) home furniture, c) how to manage a home move and d) practical tips and hints for people in new homes.
Today I had a particularly notable experience that I want to share. Why? Because of the absurdity (engineering speaking). I moved the washing machine from the kitchen to the kitchen balcony. In that way I saved a lot of space in the kitchen, which by the way in now also a living room and a study (three-in-one multi functional room). However, by moving the washing machine, I caused myself a whole lots of problems on how to have the water run to the machine. Well, after spending nearly half a day bending hoses and cables, it finally works. But it was quite a bit of struggle though.
Also, this is also the reason why I’m opening up a new category of my blog called „DIY“ (do-it-yourself) where I’ll blog about home related issues and moving to a new home.
