In December the light was poor, the days were dark and short, but the weeks long. The work was focused on the top floor and we got some of the so-called surface layers in place such as wall paint, skirting boards, window sills, and electricity. In between the landing and snug area and the office we got a wall and preparations for the double sliding doors. The floors were polished and oiled and then redone once more because our floor guy, so to speak, did not think the first time turned out good enough. This made the other work in the house slow down because the floor has to dry in between coats of oil. Nevertheless, we got a new staircase connecting the two floors. And then the holidays arrived.
In this house there were many weird choices. For example the staircase was made in oak meanwhile all the floors were pine. We decided to unite the house and so had to redo the staircase.
