Renovation progress after 30 days

Like many others flat in Oslo former owner had been decided to build a wall for making extra bedroom in this Apartment which was already one time divided before to 2 smaller apartments in this building! It was not such a smart idea to make a small unpractical bedroom when this apartment plan was ruined enough due to dividing in some smaller property before. This tiny bedroom (which barely could has a single bed inside) was just blocking the sunlight from entry and unusual tight dark closed kitchen (clearly this dark corner was not kitchen before apartment get divided)

Now we will have some natural light back + nice dining space!

Old house, left without any renovation and good take care of it till now which it caused leaking in bathroom .

We decided to make bathroom from scratch and more truth about this flat history revealed. From what we can see on first layer on wall which was hidden behind tile – here was old kitchen or laundry room some years ago.

 

& here is some photos of bathroom progressing

My signature on Frogner

Today I’m working in Frogner area. one of most interesting region in Oslo with¬†significant old buildings. Old buildings may look fascinating from out but also they may look sometimes tired inside, that’s why people who love to live in old buildings come to me and asking to give new spirit and freshness to their tired home while keeping character and history of it! our story starting by: An old flat in bad condition with lot of potential which need to rebuild from scratch. An owner with limit budget and high exceptions (Up to 500k for refurbishing – renovating, furnishing and designing). I smell some challenges! And all this lucky owner needed was a smart and affordable designer like me. here we go, this is pictures of how I got the key of this flat. follow me step by step and see where we end up! Enjoy your free and exciting journey.
