The renovation budget wasn’t very high. We’ve decided to put all new sanitary installations and electricity network and then renovate kitchen, bathroom, toilet and one room (southern bedroom) so that we could move in.
For a brief moment I was considering renovating old windows from the north, street side, but they were in terrible shape, totally untight.
So first comes first, we replaced windows form the south side, facing the big, communal yard.
It was the first time when I had to awake a bad cop in me, because in my windows order I stated “white windowsills” but they brought me fake white marble. I hate when plastic looks like stone. It is untrue. So I made a few angry calls and crisp white windowsill came home the next day.
