The build has been so much lately. Suddenly there is a wave of decisions to make. For the floorplan and windows, for example, we got help from an architect. We changed some of his plans but it was still a safety to have his drawings. 🙂 Now a few aspects of the build are soon done and we are on our own with these final decisions.
In almost every room there need to be fixed furniture and all have to be drawn. I draw in the evening to prepare for the following morning and during the weekends to prepare for Monday. All measurements have to be exact because I cannot tell a builder “about 150 millimeters”. They need to know exactly what and where. I learn a lot and it is exciting to draw what is applied the following day. It is special to see it materialize, but it is stressful as well.
Many times I get very insecure and indecisive. I have trouble accepting this side of me, especially since she is not very helpful. In most cases, there is not an apparent answer and I do not know the best choices since I am a beginner and moreover not a carpenter. So I learn on the job. The builders show me how they construct a wardrobe and then with the new insights I can make slightly better and better drawings and decisions. At times work has to be redone or adjusted, and other times it turns out better than expected. We just have to keep on trying until we get there. 😉
