So today I figured out it was about time to update my blog as so much has happened in Tjodheim. I blogged in May the last time I did. It took five months to get things more organized as it was just a NIGHTMARE! Though I had thought about doing the drainage last, the lack of customer service and lack of interest from local plumbers and big bathroom making companies pushed me to the hasty decision of leaving the bathroom/toilet for next year. - Despite the fact that it urgently needs refurbishing!
I like the way I can see the house during the different seasons. Here is the terrible winter and then the summer:
Here we go, this is what the balcony and garden looked like before the drainage job:
During the job...
It was quite a shock to see the foundations of the house on a bunch of stones put together with some sort of mortar, but then the guy in charge of the job explained to me that because it is a house from 1917, it is a very old house and that is the technique they used! Anyhow, I am glad this is done and that the basement will not be as wet as it was before, thus helping the house to be warmer!
I'm waiting for the grass to grow a bit more before I can post pictures of the finished job, which turned out to be fantastic!
