April to June -A mini renovation

Powder Room
Main Entrance
Study
Guest Bathroom

I renovated a house recently.

I recommended an overall face lift for the whole house and a mini extension to the helper's room.
We also revamped all the bathrooms and added extra storage.


The owner's Brief: Out with the 'old tropical dark wood 'and bring in fresh' Scandinivian' with colors.
We started work In mid april.While Hacking and tearing apart the house ,we found colonies of termites. It was a major set back with our woodwork.I was seriously stressed out by it as my deadline was early June.On top of that,our housekeeper fell in the bathroom and had to be admitted in the hospital. I was silently praying no more surprises please and that no matter what house was to be delivered on time!

But when I tested the showers after completion, and found that water was running everywhere, it happened bcoz the floor was slanted towards the door .I knew there and then, they have to be redone.No point killing the contractor .. . We all overlooked while we were addressing the termites and the tiles installer didin't think I supposed. I re ordered tiles from Italy(an order that takes 2 months so i can start redoing soon.Sigh I was so embarrased and offered to hang someone.(maybe me).

I delivered the house and lucky for me the owner was easy and not too fussed over it.I m doing the bathrooms when she leaves next.Anyway some pics for you of before the completion.

Surah 78 An Naba"(The News)

Have we not made the earth as a bed.
And the mountains as pegs?
And we have created you in pairs male female,tall short,good and bad
And we have made your sleep as a thing for rest.
And we have made the night as a covering(through its darkness)
And we have made the day for livelihood.
And we have built above you seven strong heavens.
And we have made (therein)a shining lamp(sun)
And we have sent down from the rainy clouds abundant water...

Then in what statement after this (Quran)will they believe.
