We have our home back!!

Global views


I cannot even begin to describe the amazing pleasure it is to FINALLY have our home back! No lingering construction work, no workers crap cluttering our balcony, no walls waiting for plastering, no unfinished painting to be done. Nada!!

The work only began on our building in March 2015. And was only supposed to take 2-3 months. Hmmm….

We aren’t yet truly ‘home free’ as work continues on other flats so we still contend daily with the whir and whine, pound and bang, however our home is blissfully worker free. And back to normal!!

And bonus? We also put pigeon netting around all our balconies to keep the birds out and our kitten in. She is delighted with her new jungle and window on the world outside our flat.

As for the exterior of the building? Who knows!

For now, we are just going to celebrate getting our home back!!!

  2. Aw, how lovely for Zoe to have access to the “outside”. Is she still looking for… erm… adult entertainment…?

  3. Oh congratulations that you have your home back. I hope that there won’t be any surprises and suddenly the workers are back again :p

    Lucky girl! I wish our renovations were finished. Sigh.

  5. YAY and congrats! construction and reconstruction is often frustrating, but the one which takes almost a year…

    • The short answer to that is our building is fundamentally structurally unsound. Which means if we lived in a part of the world with strict standards, it would likely torn down and rebuilt.

      But here in India it means every so often the building is repaired externally and internally to keep it standing. If we stick around long enough, will go through another round too!

  6. It is always nice to get some work done, but it is better when it is finished and you can sit back and enjoy it. Enjoy your newly renovated place!!
