HOUSE RENOVATION

Renovations on our second floor began this week...

That place of ours was very cold last winter...

We are 'collapsing' the two tatami-mat Japanese styled rooms upstairs to just one single large room...

Out goes the tatami mat, and in comes the hardwood flooring...

Pinewood walls on the east and west sides, tile walls on the north and south sides...

The ceiling... washi paper (Japanese paper...)

Will insulate all the walls to keep the room cool in summer and warm in winter...

Plus, double glass windows on the north and south sides...

A new washbasin and toilet...

A mini-kitchen for use in winter...

And a large hardwood sundeck to view the magnificent hills and the sea...

In my eyes, I see us enjoying our meals on the deck... (when conditions are right, that is)

Wheeee....

Oh yes... am surely looking forward to the renovation completion in about two to three months...
