Cornice mouldings & garage door

Dear Reader,

hope you had a cosy and lovely start into the new Season, here any sign of Summer is gone and we are now enjoying the first Autumn mist, colder evenings, and a few still tentative sparkles of yellow and braunish... :-) I love all Seasons, what we all the variety of characters, atmospheres, and colours you have, and I always appreciate Autumn for its introspective and longing character, its colder temperatures and warmer colours...This is the time - after the extrovert Summer nights - when you appreciate again the safe warmth and cosiness of your home at the end of each day.

For us this year this is a time of change and new beginnings, our already beloved Schwedenhaus has now entered the final building stage and it will soon be ready to welcome us!!

Four weeks to go till moving, and we're all on edge to see if we'll make it on time ;-) and if everything will work smoothly in this last, hectic phase. I've started to sort out my gardrobe yesterday, today we'll start with the boxes in the cellar, the electrical installation is almost completed, and the Rörvikshus team is working on high gear to complete the plaster work.

Here how the house looked yesterday evening, Lange has begun to install our cornice mouldings (Orac CB501)...I find them beautiful, they really change the character of a room...

As you see almost all walls are whitish by now: has they explained to us, the plaster work is done in more stages, to achieve an always finer and smoother result. In the last stage they mix a tiny bit of white paint with the primer, so that it is then easier to find out all the tiny spots that are not yet 100% perfect. These are then highlighted (with a pencil!) and improved. This is really a huge work and it requires highly developed handcraft and's fascinating to see the boys at work, how with seemingly effortless moves they create a perfectly smooth - almost velvety surface!! :-)

Since this week we also have a garage door!!! Unfortunately I only managed to get a late evening picture.. ;-) the door really looks beautiful, is crafted in solid wood and painted with the same white as the outer house facade (NCS 0502-Y).

Here a last picture of the evening atmosphere at the house...I so much can't wait to see the final result and be able to move there!!! It would be great to celebrate my birthday (Nov 3rd) this year in the new house...let's see if we can make it happen! ;-) After a few more days of break, next week it will be time for painting and flooring!!

All for today dear Reader, wish you a cosy Sunday. 
Take care,
