So We Did a Thing...
Vi köpte en längenhet
It’s been a while since we wrote. We’ve been busy. We have had a small project going on for the last 10 months or so. We bought an apartment! I guess we will be staying in Stockholm for a bit longer. This is us after signing:
We bought a lovely apartment last April. The previous owners were older and asked for some time to look for a new place to live so we gave them an extended closing. Which was fine because we love our current rental, and it allowed us to host many visitors over the summer. Our new apartment is lovely. It’s right around the block from where we live now, so the Cinnamon Sticks stay close to their friends and a neighborhood we all love. Here are some pictures:
It was a lovely apartment, but since we had all this time before moving in, we thought, “We should see if we could do some renovations!” Having seen copious amounts of HGTV renovation shows, we felt well qualified. We quickly found designers whose work we loved. So we went for it!
The process was equal parts terrifying and exciting. Like everything associated with our Swedish adventure, it was much harder than we imagined. Take a normal renovation, add a really, really old apartment, a foreign language, rules and regulations that you have no idea how they work, and, well, you get the idea.
Our lovely apartment went from the above pictures to this:
Let’s just say it got a lot worse before it got better…
