I’m pleased to report there’s been more than a bit of progress on the interior fit-out of Odin over the last 2 months.
We now have a new kitchen with actual storage (hooray!), a bathroom with room to spread one’s arms out (incredible! – for a boat) and a new bedroom with an actual bed and storage (whoo hoo!). Oh yeah, and we’re expecting a baby in approximately a week and a bit (eeeeep!).
In February we realised that in order finish the major boat works, continue working full time and have ANY chance whatsoever of completing it in time for baby’s appearance, we’d need some help from the professionals.
A neighbour recently used a really impressive company called UK Floating Homes to complete her new boat fit-out. With a quick recommendation and a dash of scheduling serendipity, we had a team on the boat making the magic happen less than two weeks after making the enquiry. Bam.
We’re still finishing off those all important details, but I’d love to take you on a little picture-tour of progress. We couldn’t be happier with the new layout.
The never-ending list
Jobs still on the list: fitting-out the seating area on our rear deck (my wonderfully handy Dad is due to help with this when he visits in June); more filling and painting; wallpapering the new cavity sliding doors; adding curtains in the bedroom (my wonderfully handy Mum sewed and sent these over from Australia)… and a billion other details.
Also on the list: working out whether boat life suits newborn babies. Please cross everything for us!
The detail is amazing.
Well done to you both. Odin looks great. X
Looks amazing! 💥 I love how brutal you have to be with every single possession – everything must have to work so hard not to be binned..
Exactly Barry! It’s good to put some constraints on what you own… Putting some thought into what you need initially, then adopting a ‘1 in, 1 out’ system helps. But like I said, I think we can do WAY better. We still have a few things in storage we need to ditch too.
Wow. Looks amazing. And I love all the creative storage ideas. That bed is fabulous! Bubs will love it, too ❤
Thanks Charisse, I hope bubs will be happy here! Storage is sooooo important on boats, as is not filling it with too many things x
