Our project this week has been to work on this old abandoned timber house in the middle of nowhere, beautifully located at the end of the world. We have acquired all furniture second hand, so not one single piece has been bought new, as we are hoping for this house to be as ecological as possible. Anyhow, the job if cleaning it out is quite tedious as it has not been used at all for 2 generations so you can just imagine the amount of dust and shit it contains -yuck!

However I am very pleased to announce that today we completed cleaning out the master bedroom! so now we just need to bring some bedlinen and you can start to sleep there. Will share the rest as we make more progress, for now I just wish you could smell the soapy clean smell but as you can’t just try to imagine it…
