Before and after renovation glimpse ,work is on



Hey  Dear  Friends!


Hope    and   pray   that   all   of  you   are   enjoying   the   healthy   happy  life   with  your  loved   ones .

Hope   temps  are  bearable   and  moods  are   pleasant :)


Right  now  i  am  suffering  with   fever  and   motions  which   started   from  yesterday  evening.  

Though  self  medicine  has  bettered  my  condition   still   i  am  not  out  of  it  completely .Visiting  doctor  during  renovation   work   is  quite   hard   so  i  am  relying  on  medicines  which   i   always  keep  in  house  for   such   not  so   serious   diseases .


Winter   is  in  her  extreme   mood   specially  where  minus  20  is  recorded  .Here  in  our   city   temps  are  mild  low  7  and  high  20.


Our   renovation  work   is  about  to  finish   now  ,may  be  2  days  more .Since  almost   two   weeks   we   are  hearing  the  horrible   voice   of   polishing  machine   which   seem   to   polish   floors  marble   and   grind   our   senses  for  almost   10   hours   a  day .

But   this   is  nature  of  human  that   after   a  certain  time   he   learn   to   survive   in   all   kinds   of   situations   and  proves   himself   a  most   clever   survivor  among  all   species   .



So   no   doubt   we   gonna  miss  her   voice   for  while  .Sharing  some  before  after  pics  with  you  hope  you   will  like   them 


    Our   front   yard   looked   like   this  before  renovation

          during  the  polish  it  was  looking  like  this  

Today  it's  little  clear,after  2  days  hope  will  look  even  fine  

       Corridor  between  two  rooms  front  of  each  other 

the  iron  closet  we  placed  here  beside  the  ironing  table  as  we  have  decided  to  decorate   the  room  on  right  with  new  set  of  furniture , on  left  is  our  bedroom

in  both  rooms  which  face  each  other  have  new  floor  of  tiles  instead  of  marble  which  is  installed  in  one  of  our  living   room ,lounge   and   front  yard

we  have  not  placed  stuff  back  to  it's  place  yet  as  work  is  on  and  everything  is  misplace. this  is  lounge  front  of  living  room 

i took  pic  of  polish machine  today   when  man  took  lunch  break 

two days  before  when  polish  man  left  to  pick   up  some  tools  ,hubby  called  me  out  in  yard  to  take  a  breath   in  fresh  air  as  i  was  confined  since  the  work  is  on ,you  can  see  our  grain  container  placed  in  my  garden ,worst  thing  is  that  all  my  tiny   plants  of  sunflower  have  runned  under   stuff ,but  hubby  says  he  will  bring  new  shoots  and  plant again.

this pic  is  from  2016  april 
hope  my  garden  will  take  this  shape  again  soon  to   glorify  my  house :)

Thats  all   for  now   dear   people  ,saying  goodbye  with   heartiest  best  wishes  for  all  of  you  ,stay   strong  ,positive  and  smiling:)

God  bless you  all!!

  4. Nice tile! I would rather have tile than the wood laminate we have. I really like your bedroom set. Nice garden area, it will be that way again soon, I hope. The temperatures - are you talking Fahrenheit or Celsius? We have 18F this morning.

  5. In Canada, we see beautiful marble floors like that only in public buildings and shopping centres -- too expensive for private homes! Tile, on the other hand, is more usually found in our homes!

    1. Thank you fpr kind words dear Debra!

      here it is opposite

      tiles are more expensive than marbles and more short living than marbles this is why we choose tiles only for two rooms where we don't rush much and marble for living room ,lounge and front yard where we stay most

  6. Gosh, amazing before and after pictures...makes me look around my house and consider all the improvements I should be doing here too! 😉

    I do so hope you are feeling better now...it must have been very trying, all the noise from the polishers, especially when you were feeling under the weather.
    Still, it was worth it...your home looks fabulous!!

    Much Love and hugs xoxo

      my smart phone camera is not smart enough to capture the whole glow of floors ,they do look shining .yes they are marbles in the lounge ,in living room and in the front yard.

      In two rooms which face each other have floors of tiles though .
      wow your weather is nice while all over snow and rains are ruling Toni!

      yet i am enjoying the cold as after medicines my joints can bear the low temps too :)

      it is not out of possibility to visit you my friend ,but remember i take teak very hot and with light milk

  16. I am sore to hear that you are not feeling well. I hope that you feel better ASAP. Having renovations going on in your home can be so vexing and disturbing. The floors do look fantastic.

      yes it is disturbing though but sound of machine feel like music as it make us realize that we are gradually moving towards end of all this mess lol

  17. Feel better soon, Baili! I, too, keep a stock of over-the-counter medicines at home to take care of the things I can for my husband and me. It's no fun to have the fever and chills.

    Your floors look gorgeous! I can imagine the noise because that polisher is grinding stone. Your garden will grow back and be the way you love it again. I love the decretive ~ I'm not sure what to call them ~ stone carved with patterns ~ you can see them in the first and last photos ~ especially in the last photo under the tree branch. They add such a lovely touch to you home. The photo of you and your husband is lovely.

    We have sun again here today, and it's much warmer. Terry got up around 5 am, and it was -17º C outside; now it's 1º C. Terry is off having his post cataract surgery check up, and I'm about to go to the grocery store. We have 3 coffee beans left in the house ~ almost a crisis ~ LOL. We can't be without coffee in this house! At least I don't have to drive on black ice!

    Take care, Balii. Thanks for sharing the photos of your lovely home. It will feel so good when everything is complete! Hugs to you!

    1. Thank you so much for your warm sweet words dear Louise!

      Today inspite of all work going on hubby is taking me to visit the doctor for throat 's further check up which seems better now though.

      i really hope that my garden take it's shape back as without it;s greenery and blooms all seems just waste(don't tell my husband lol)

      my garden is way to my breathing.
      looking at it refresh my soul all the time and gives me sense of being close to God which is precious!!!i can imagine the value of coffee at place where cold is at it's peak ,meanwhile drinking coffee or tea or other fav drinks keep warm.

      i hope your hubby's check up go well .glad you have sun hope will stay for while at least.
      thank you for your kind best wishes my friend

      yes as you know i am bundle of diseases lol ,but guess what self medicines did well for fever and loose motions within a day and today i am quite relived by the grace of God!

      i adore your concern about people who drive these grinding machines for living .
      Me and my husband talk LOT about this and appreciate such hardworking people who choose RIGHT PATH FOR LIVING INSTEAD OF ROBBING OTHERS LIKE POLITICIANS (most of them) and many other who strive for easy money

  28. Such craftsmanship on the floors! I hope you enjoy them for many many years. How do you clean them? With a broom and mop?

    Your husband is very good to look out for you and promise some new flowers. I know once everything is away and your plants are growing and your garden peaceful that you will feel much better. I am glad you are going back to the doctor and being looked after properly.

  29. Hello, Dear Baili, I do hope that you are starting to feel better but I'm sure the noise is not helping your poor head! Your floors are so beautiful, all polished so nicely, and it is a lovely and cozy home that you have. I do love your beautiful courtyard and wonderful carved furniture! So nice to see your sweet faces, too <3 It is very nice of your dear husband to promise you new flowers. Take care of yourself and try to rest. Sending you blessings xo Karen

  34. The marble floors are BEAUTIFUL! They will be nice and cool in the hot weather, will they not? I hope you had some earplugs or at least some bits of cotton fluff to put in your ears while the workers were polishing!

    I hope you are feeling recovered from the fever today, baili. I hope you had a promising check-up at the doctor for your throat as well. You have had a rough time the last few weeks. Soon all will be back to normal for you, I hope. Hugs, my friend.

  36. Great photo of you and your husband! Renovations are a lot of work and most of us get very impatient. I don't like the dust everywhere but in the end when everything looks so beautiful one can see that it was all worth it. Thanks for sharing and may you have a lovely week.
