Subi project is finished

6 months later and the flat is done.  A tenant moves in tomorrow. It was rented out in a day!  I feel a real sense of achievement - I'm quite chuffed with myself. Lots of people do this every day I know, and on a much much bigger scale than mine.  I could do it again.  It is so totally totally different than living through a renovation (which I've been doing for 8+ years).  It makes all the difference to go home and leave the mess and dust and clutter.  Perhaps I feel really chuffed because this has FINISHED, whereas there is no finishing line at home?  I have no control over the home front due to my partner being a carpenter and in charge of all building that why there is no satisfaction?  The lack of control?  Am I a control freak? He is so so slow on the home front.  And this is funny...I asked him to help with a couple of things at the flat...and he is the only tradesman/contractor I've had trouble with!! He was desperate to do the entire reno, but I said no way.  It was my flat and my project. Perhaps I feel vindicated that I can contribute to a renovation efficiently, practically and cost-effectively. Anyhoo, whatever... it has been a fantastic project for me.

Here are a few photos....
