Darling, I’ve gone shopping!

April 15, 2012

What do you do when you don’t build? Correct, you buy stuff to build with later on!

It’s been an expensive week. First I ordered the floor boards for the second floor. One hundred pieces of UPM WISA PRO floorboards in vanilla color 145mm wide. At 9.70 Euro per piece plus 100 Euro delivery charge to get it to the local K-Rauta I’m not too worried about the price as you pay 4.50/m at Puukeskus for the untreated version (reminder: each piece I ordered is about 2m long).

The next order was placed at Pukkila for floor tiles that will come into the hallway. I assumed it to be rather challenging to find tiles in the right size and matching color pattern to fit our compass mosaic.

But with help of the very nice staff from Pukkila in Tammisto (and after some carrying about of the compass mosaic) we found a tile that matches nicely the color tone of the mosaic tiles with the letters i.e. the darkest part of the mosaic. The tiles from Pukkila are called Dolmen and come in size of 604/300mm i.e. nicely work with the mosaic sized 600. Perfect!

Next up on the shopping list were the lamps for the kitchen and dining area. After some research in some various web shops, Bauhaus, and K-Rauta I found some lamps that at least hypothetically please the other half. Both of them come with an white antique-wanna-be finnish which could look rather nice.N

Last but not least, a little 390 Euro shopping trip to sähkö buying more ABB Jussi power sockets, light switches, and thermostats for the second floor completes this week of procurement.
