I figured since I'm show you the remodeling going on at the Little White House, I should start at the beginning... The ground floor.
Three different floors for three tiny rooms: living-room in white, dining-room in red and kitchen in orange.
Digging the previous floor to get a proper draining sysytem...
It doesn't even look like a home anymore.
New concrete foundation slab.
Same floor in the three rooms...
Sorry, the door just arrived so it's not painted and I can't decide on the handle, so it's handle free right now!
A close up, just because it makes my heart do somersaults:
It's irregular so hopefully dirt won't show that much.
The two best compliments I had so far about it:
1) My dad said "it doesn't look new"... He didn't intend it as a compliment, but it was what I was going for!
2) My neighbour said it suited the old house so that she didn't remember how the floor looked like before.
So one more time, view from the stairs. Before:
There's still so much to do, but it's a start, isn't it? I'm looking for a buffet of some kind to put next to the entrance door, where the awful non-sliding sliding door cupboard was. I put a bookcase there, just to have a place to put keys and my handbag for now...
It feels it's cosier than before and it links the rooms together. What do you think?
Square of sunshine (a rare moment this summer!) on the floor of the dining-room... that still needs decorating... badly!

Now I think it's time to join some "floor warming parties"!
