House Bossi A home in Cape Town

The garage door is in, sewerage line is installed, the driveway is drying & interior plans are just about ready.

It’s been a long month since the last update. Many more decisions and not enough time to make them.

I spent a good portion of the last month deciding on tap fittings and after many hours and days and weeks trying to find the right fittings, a quick conversation and a mail with a work colleague led me to Vola. Designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1968 this range fits the form/function balance perfectly and seems to belong in my home.

You can also head on over to artsy.net to find out more and even get your hands on some of Arne’s pieces.

With the help of Martina at Still Bathrooms I have managed to sort most of my sanitary ware requirements out which is a huge relief.

Vola is not cheap but I think is well worth it – it comes in different colours and has water saving adjustments.

There is also a 360 degree view of the interior to stare at.

The engineer has been to site to check it all out. We now wait for a DCP test as the soil wasn’t looking great for us to build the foundations on – this means two things: more time and more money.

But I have been assured that this is one of the few variables in the construction process that we cannot plan for entirely.
