We moved out of one apartment a week ago, and put the boxes and furniture in a warehouse while we are waiting for the bathroom to be renovated in our new place. Last week we were told it was probably almost done and would should be able to move in soon. So, we went by last Tuesday to see what the new bathroom looked like and figure out when we could move in.

This photo was taken from one of the rooms adjacent to the bathroom. Yep. There was a wall missing from the bathroom, the one where the shower had been. Everything had been stripped down to what appears to be the original brick and wood, which must be about a hundred years old. The entire apartment is dusty/dirty because of the work.

We went back again last night. Here's the status:

This is in the living room:

So we wait.*

*And we are hoping that the apartment will be ready by July 1st, which is when our lease begins and when we are supposed to move out of where we are staying now. Everyone moves on July 1st, we were hoping to move into the new place before the moving madness. This does not look too promising.


  1. Yeah, I wouldn't be moving ANYTHING into that place just yet! Yikes!

  2. yeesh.

    our apt complex refused to fix the crappy bathroom.

    and then decided to sneak in and do it while we were out one night.

    THAT went well.

  3. omg...move in dates are never real dates right?

    looks like a lot of work!

    btw, thanks so much for stopping by and commenting on my blog!

  4. Oh dear! Hope it gets sorted soon

  5. There is progress on the apartment renovations, and we should be able to move in next week. Our apt is now one room smaller now though (!!!), but we will have a huge, nice, new bathroom.

  6. Yikes, crazy!! You're taking it in stride a lot better than I would.
