Renovation in my house.....

Kolkata, India
October 29, 2015 9:53am CST
After 12 years of moving into the apartment, it is now being completely remodeled from the inside....The kitchen partitions is being removed to make a kitchen-dining hall. One of the bathrooms is broken down from inside. My room will now have a different entry door from the verandah instead of being from the living room. Finally there will be a fresh coat of paint in all the rooms, and mom is right now poring over the shade cards for selecting the paint color. There is an ongoing plan to make one entire section of the living room wall a patterned color wall. Like they show in advertisements. She is trying to buy a divan-bed which will go nicely with that wall, and it will increase the place to sleep when guests come over. So far so good. The work started today and went from 9 in the morning till 5 in the afternoon. They are trying to complete it in one and a half months maximum time. Keeping my fingers crossed and excited about the new look our apartment's going to get!

I think all of you better move to a motel for a while. It is very stressful to live in a place where the workers move in and out.

There isn't any motel in the vicinity, plus we have to discuss the renovation work with the contractor regularly.... There aren't too many workers actually. But 2 out of 3 rooms are in a mess.

To renovate a home can be a lot of work, though it is a fun time too, because everything will look new and fresh, good luck with it and enjoy. :-)

very true. Right now four of us are living in one room, but I heard all the plans and I'm super excited about it!

It sounds as if it will be lovely when it's finished.

I really hope so! It will be a nice change after what I've been seeing from childhood.
