Vilgāle apt update: Drywall for Bathroom, Kitchen and Hallway, Building Sauna

| Home Remodeling | 3 seen

It has been a while since I posted the latest updates from our Vilgāle apartment renovation, the active construction works have been paused since March, except some minor plastering was done by mid-June.

In the Summer months in Latvia, it is hard to find contractors. I was left with no other option than to wait for the fall/ winter season. 

Without further ado, works have resumed with lightning speed and there is a hope we will finish this apt by the end of this year (2021), at least the major construction works.

Construction for drywall at the hallway

Rock wool, wiring. In the hallway there is going to be installed a wood pellet central heating stove.

Drywall construction for kitchen wall

We already started to look on Ikea store for some cabinets to install here

Kitchen area

The more I look, the more I like this place

Drywall construction for bathroom/hallway

Looks very decent already


I hope to build here a little sauna with electric stove
