House Bossi A home in Cape Town
Categories: General

The last month has been a very intense period of decision and indecision.

Colour has been the topic on my brain and I have learnt one thing about colour – it’s easiest to not choose a colour – so I’ve gone with white.

I have also realised that it is best to go with your own opinion regardless of how much advice you get because at the end of the 2500 colour swatches the only colour you will ever be happy with is the one you choose yourself. Or maybe that’s just me.

The interior has its first coat of paint. All the glazing is in. The garage door is ordered. I have a new boundary fence. The joinery plans are almost complete thanks to Site-ID. The flooring quotes are in. The geyser dilemma is almost solved. And I am looking at a year of serious debt.

I now have a date that I HAVE to move in: June 1st 2011. I will be out of apartment and time. I should be 85% complete but I have accepted the fate of a build-your-first-house soloist and will have to live without some things completed.

I am however more excited than ever and even sitting in the empty space I get a sense of the home’s personality.
