Wall Plastering, Ceiling Paint, Some Electricity works

Updated: 23 March, 2022 seen 127

It has been a while since the latest update from the Vilgale apartment, in fact, it has been 3 months since I last visited it. Now, having a Spring break from QSI school in Tbilisi, we decided to visit Latvia for some 2 weeks and do some things - like continuing with the renovation works at the Vilgāle apt.

I bought some materials back in Riga at the Depo store and was the very happy and enthusiastic starting day today at Vilgāle.

This is where we were left before the New Year of 2022. Today I decided to plaster walls in the hallway.
