Our old apartment was really small, 19 meters squared. That's
205 feet squared. It was a pain in the butt and we've
just outgrown the space. Finland was supposed to be
temporary 14 years ago lol :).
This was how we'd sleep at night.
Spenser had to move the furniture around every night
and put down mattresses. It stunk. :/ So here and there...I
won't go into details who what where and why...we knocked
down a wall and now have double the space! :) Thanks for
ALL the prayers everyone, it made it happen! :)
Getting around to knock down the wall. We had
put the fridge and freezer on in the room. We
slept downstairs for a day until the construction stopped.
Improvement already! :) Spenser and his
brother knocked down the wall!
We had to move Spenser's mom's furniture and
unload the stuff inside...that took Wednesday
and Thursday. It was lots of hard work.
Yesterday we had some guys come and
fill up the arch. They boarded it and put sound
insulation up too. At a later date we'll have some
sound insulating covering or at least paint.
Today Spenser and I finished moving in
and am pleased to show the new apartment layout/stuff! :)
(We live in the same house, just doubled our space!)
Our living room! You can see the arch filled in. Spenser's
music making station and my computer against the wall.
We used our anniversary gift from my parents to
buy a used tv stand, a used couch, and a used coffee table.
Thanks Mom and Dad! :)
LOVE this coffee table!
Now you can see the kitchen set up! :) At some point we'll
actually install cabinets, an oven, and a sink. It requires
work to run drains and water though, so it's a later date.
I'm pretty happy though with this set up! :)
Our dining area/work area. I don't have
a counter but this table will work just fine!
Our cabinet in the hallway. It holds
the misc. stuff that shows up.
You can see the hall and bathroom. There
was a wall separating these rooms and it's
a blessing it's gone now!
Our bedroom is actually a bedroom now! :)
Barren and just the way we like it! :)
Now we have 40 square meters or 430 square feet :D.
Spenser and I are REALLY happy :).
