Vannitoa ehitamine teisele korrusele

Vannitoa ehitamine võttis meil jällegi plaanitust palju kauem aega, sest ma ei suutnud ära otsustada, millised plaadid me valima peaksime. Lisaks läks vannitoast nii palju torusid ja juhtmeid läbi, et kuidagi oli vaja välja mõelda, kuidas need sinna ära peita. Loe edasi… The post Vannitoa…

Kuidas ilmetust riiulist sai stiilne telekaalus

Mul on pidevalt kombeks jälgida kasutatud mööbli kuulutusi nii Facebook Marketplace-s kui vastavates gruppides. Siiani pole ma eriti midagi suurt ostnud, sest pole leidnud miskit, mis ideaalselt sobiks. Ükspäev hakkas aga silma ühe pika madala riiuli kuulutus – just miskit Loe edasi… The post Kuidas…

Sahvrikapi ehitamine vanasse ukseavasse

Majaehituse käigus jäi meil köögi kõrvale söögitoa osasse üks viimistlemata ukseava, millega me ei teadnud, mida teha. Kui see oli paar aastat puutumatuna seisnud, tekkis mul idee sinna sahvririiulid ehitada. Sahvrikapi ehitamine oli meil selline pisike kõrvaltöö, mida tegime mitu Loe edasi… The post Sahvrikapi…

Kodukontori seinakapi ehitamine

See seinakapi ehitamine on meil vist kõige enam veninud ja kodukontor on viimane tuba, kus meil seisid endiselt sorteerimata kastid ja paberid, mida me polnud suutnud läbi vaadata ja neile oma kohta leida. Kohe algusest peale oli meil plaan sellesse Loe edasi… The post Kodukontori…

9months of less / week 4-7

Eelmises kodu teemalises postituses juba puudutasin põgusalt teemat, et meie elus on toimunud mõned suuremad muudatused. Sealt edasi mõjutab see ka minu ostukeelu plaane. Vaja on mõtestada enda jaoks lahti uus lõppeesmärk, ning vaadata hoolikalt üle lubatu/keelude nimekiri. Nüüd on kindel, et suve alguseks me…

Pool blogist läheb puhkusele.

Pool blogist läheb puhkusele.

Põhjuseid, miks kogu oma kodu protsess meil nii aeglaselt kulgeb, on mitmeid erinevaid. Lugedes teiste blogisid tunnen, et me ei saagi kunagi valmis. Kõik teised ehitavad, remondivad ja kolivad ümberringi. Meie aga vaid mõtleme selle kõige tegemisele. Üks põhjustest on olnud muidugi, algusest peale, rahaline…

Tootsi maja: katuse tugevuse katsetus ja metalli kogumine

Üle pika aja sai taaskord kaks päeva tööd teha, või noh mõned tunnid siiski. Esimesel päeval läks L katusele, homemade korstnaplekke paigaldama, mitu tundi veetis üles-alla ronides. Maapinnal plekki lõigates ja üleval seda katuse külge kinnitades. Korstna külge kinnitamine peab ootama vajalike tööriistade kaasamist järgmisel…

Loobutud asjade kogus: 15% Säästudele lisatud: 10% sissetulekust Teise nädala lõpuks olen hakanud mõtlema nendele asjadele, mida ma tihti ja üleliia ostsin. Kui meie kasutataval pesugeelil oli soodus, ostsin kaks pakki. WC-paber sooduses, ostsime viis pakki korraga. Raamatud sooduses, ostan kolm. Kenad taldrikud poes, võtan…
