A few days before moving in, it was time to get rid of the protective paper on the floor and and clean the apartment. With the kind help of relatives, the whole place was vacuumed and washed from floor to ceiling. At this point, we wanted to take you on a small tour around the staircase (please refer to the floor plan in Welcome!, if you need to refresh your memory on the location of the stairs).
In the first photo, there is the bathroom door opening located on the entrance side of the staircase. At the moment, the big question is whether the door frame should be black or white. Any preferences?

On the same side of the staircase is the entrance and the hallway leading to the two bedrooms. Related to the previous photo you can see where the color problem comes from: the two door openings in this hallway have been painted black.

Next comes the kitchen side of the staircase. The kitchen wall has now been primed and protected, and is ready for the arrival and assembly of cabinets and household appliances. We left some floor protection on the right side of the hallway so the construction guys have an easy access to downstairs, where they are working with the bathroom. For a while, we have been slowly moving stuff in to make the actual moving day as painless as possible. The downstairs storage room is full already, and now the boxes start piling up in front of the kitchen wall.
