Darryl blog thing!

by

Time for an update of stuff I have been doing which was not mentioned in detail on the blog, be warned, there might be some time travelling backwards a few months!

Most importantly, our local supermarket is selling another brand of English tea! I actually hated this brand while I lived on that stupid little island but I am very homesick these days, so any English foods and drinks are great for me ๐Ÿ˜€

Okay, onto real stuff. The electricians noticed that our kitchen worktop was too large and that it would stick out beyond the doorway! So I had to create a new wall inside the doorway to make the wall long enough to contain our kitchen ambitions, it was tricky, but I am getting quite confident at making walls now ๐Ÿ˜€

I had to make some fancy wall section as the wall stuck out more before the doorway compared to after the doorway, turned out ok!

By the way: I did 2 more things that I did not take any pics of for some reason. 1 Was that I put wood planks on the ceiling at 40cm distances so we could put ceiling panels up there. 2 was that I then put insulation up there. AND 3 is that I dug up the floor in the kitchen AND removed all the wood-chip insulation to reveal the sewage pipes, then the plumbers did some shit, then I covered it all up again, IT WAS HARD AND TOOK AGES. Plumbers are lazy bastards and I will never forgive them. Yeah, I am salty as fuck about that. Plumbers have literally wasted weeks or months of this project, no other type of workmen has wasted so much of our time. I’ll take a lot of pleasure next time Mario gets eaten by a turtle next time I have a nostalgia session and play an old Mario game! Plumbers succkkkkkkkkkkkk.

Next thing to do was to make the arch between the green room and the kitchen. We noticed the walls I had made months ago were not the same width, so I made new wall sections to make it symetrical.

I think I had not made them symetrical for a reason at the time, but I don’t remember why!

After some precision chopping, I made an archway! Not too bad for a first try.

Here is the other side, with the wood exposed.

Jesper did not help, but he was very tired anyway!

He woke up though once we filled the food bucket! (This is just where we store food, he is not supposed to eat from here!)

We also went to some hippy festival thing, it was pretty cool and there was an oldschool arcade in there! We learned that M is freaking badass at street fighter! …and most other fighting games we tried. OR maybe I am terrible at them, who knows!

Then Summer suddenly happened! We have a nice yellow meadow garden, I should really cut it but I am too busy doing house stuff and our lawn mower is totally seriously crap ๐Ÿ˜€

We discovered a stash of cocaine under the floor, M especialy enjoyed it:

After a week or so of plastering between the plasterboards, (WHICH IS HARD AND STRESSFULL) it was time to start painting the undercoat (stupid white paint):

Eventually after 2 layers, it was done, at it looked pretty good! Most of my silly n00b plastering mistakes were covered up by the paint, phew!

Of course, the next step was to make everything green!

After making it green, the next step was to put up the ceiling panels, some super strong tattoo’ed girl turned up to do the sawing!

It went pretty smoothly, we had an expert chopping the panels, and the they slotted together really easily:

Before long, it was done!

This weekend, M is on some weird choir trip, so rather than wasting time on the jungle (garden) I decided to put the kitchen floor in.

It went pretty smoothly, but after a while there were some uneven parts of the floor, so I added more underlay foam stuff to those sections so the floor would (wood) har har not wobble.

The original floor in the kitchen is really messy as I had to take a large part of it out to reveal the sewage pipes for the stupid plumber as it was obviously a too big job for them. I then had to re-make the floor out of whatever wood I could find, so it is not totally flat and even.

I had to make a cute square hole thing for the sink sewage pipes:

After 5 hours, a few bucket of sweat, and a fantastic Sherlock Holmes audiobook later, it was done!

That is all for now! I expect next week I will start making the IKEA kitchen stuff, exciting!
