A stainway nightmare

I det jeg starter drømmen om å ordne trappegangen en gang i fremtiden, oppdager vi at trappen vi har i dag holder på å falle ned! Overtagelsen av huset har mildt sagt vært et lite mareritt. Ikke var det skikkelig vaska, ikke hadde de fjerne hunde bæsjen i hagen, og ikke tok de med seg katten sin. Trappa var rett og slett prikken over i-en. Så i stedet for å nyte de første dagene i vårt nye hus, styrer vi nå med forsikringsselskap, takstmenn og det som verre er. Jeg trøster meg med at vi har planer om å bo her resten av livet, og at man må blø litt for villa-luksusen.

Ennå surere er det når J-man helt av egen fri vilje uttalte at nytt kjøkken måtte komme først på lista. Men med vårt forestående trappeprosjekt frykter jeg at det kommer til å ta en stund før det blir prioritert igjen.

Oppsiden er at trappedrømmen, nå ikke kommer til å forbli en drøm.

The second I start dreaming about a new, grand stairwell sometime in the future, we discover that the stair we have today are falling down! The acquisition of the house has been a small nightmare. It was not properly washed, they had not remove the dog poop in the yard, and not they did not take their cat with them. The stairs were just icing on the cake. So instead of enjoying the first days in our new house, we are dealing with insurance companies, appraisers and such. I keep telling myself that since we plan to live here for the rest of our lifes, we can endure to bleed a little for our newfound villa luxury.

Yet more bitter is it when J-man actually decided all on his own that a new kitchen should be on top of our to-do list. But with our upcoming stair project, I fear that it’s going to take a while before it gets priority again.

The upside is that now we can hopefully get a grand staircase!
