It’s been almost two months since I last wrote about the progress of my Barcelona apartment renovation, as I’ve been uncomfortably busy trying to get my Property Corner section of this website off the ground, whilst at the same time trying not to lose control of the renovation work. Feeling a bit like a hamster on a wheel, I just haven’t found the time to write about it.
With too much on my plate I took my eye off the ball and all of a sudden found myself horribly over budget (a familiar story, I’m told). Anyway, it’s now back under control, as amongst other things I’m sacrificing bespoke fitted cupboards for IKEA. Lots of other cool things have also been abandoned.
Soon it will be finished so rather than miss the opportunity to update those who are interested I thought I would try and different approach and shoot a quick video update, which took me three minutes, and might even be more interesting than the written updates.
So here it is. Please forgive the shaky camera work at the start – it’s a learning process and it gets better after a few seconds. If the regulars who have been following the progress of my renovation like it I might do a few more, though I also plan to write more articles on questions like hydraulic tiles, the wow factor, bed height, windows, LED lighting, Telco, managing renovation from afar, to name but a few.
