Nickel Beach (Lake Erie)

It was long, long way to the next place of life. I am not saying about distance, it is just about all the circumstances which make the move not easy. We have moved in our life many times and changed it dramatically. Some of the moves were over the ocean, some just around the corner, and who knows how many more times we’ll go to the other place. However, now we settled down in the lovely town of Welland, in Niagara region right in between Lakes Ontario and Erie. From here all of my future posts will have place.

Black Friday

Black Friday Sun

Eerie Niagara Falls this morning November 27, 2020 – Black Friday. There are a few reasons for this unusual situation here. First of all, it is an off-season time. Another thing is the second wave of COVID19 when all the places shut down. There is only emptiness and the Falls roaring one can see and hear around.
This place is always has been swarmed with people from all around the world. Looks like we are in a horror movie. However, it is a great time to be here and have the opportunity to enjoy this place with no crowd and any hassles.

The Weather Today

After beautiful day yesterday we have nasty weather today. It is snow full day long. Grey and boring Sunday. However it is good excuse to stay home and make the last preparation for moving.

June Evening

 

There are so many things going on around the World. I am tied. Is it possible to people live in peace and do not look for problems? Take care about people around you, do not be selfish, behave accordingly and you never have any problems of any kind. Never blame anybody in case of your problems. The reason of these problems is only you and nobody else.

Ceiling

The most fun job is to build the ceiling. The Embassy ceiling system is the best choice to make the basement ceiling looking nice and clean. Finally I came to the end of the project. Perhaps I will make few pictures of the final product to let you know how it looks like and why I decided to make this job. It was absolutely uninhabitable space and now it is nice and cozy place for work, relax and entertain.
Do not forget to open one of the pictures and follow by arrow to watch every single picture in bigger size.


Wall finishing

Boring pandemic time is still in progress and my boring posts still in progress too.

Framing is done and now the time to finish the walls. It is still too much work to do and some of it is not really pleasant. Let’s start from the drywall installation.

And now the dirtiest part of project has to be done – to put the mud to make the walls smooth and nice.

Making the clouds of dust. Sanding.

Painting is the artistic part of the project.

Partially finished project – laundry room.

 


Plumbing and Sewer

After framing is done the next step is to build the water and sewer piping to laundry and bathroom. The most time consuming job is plumbing. To trace all the pipes, to choose right connectors, to solder them, and to fit all that stuff to appliances is quite a project.

Compare with the plumbing the sewer is kind of relaxing and enjoying process. Just measure, cut, glue and vu à la you have it done.

It was necessary to relocate some existing pipes, such as furnace exhaust, to make then easer creation of the bulkheads.


Framing – Bulkheads

The most challenging and tricky part of framing is building the bulkheads. All of the home communications such as water, sewers, power cables, telephone lines, ducts, central vac pipes etc. are located under the basement celling, this is why to cover all that stuff the patience is the most desirable character trait. It is time consuming job. Most of the time it is not strait forward project. Pretty often it takes time to make a special design to solve the problem.

 


COVID19 in Toronto

Toronto. Saturday. Noon. Sunny day. Emptiness. Hard to imagine the city like that. Usually the life is boiling in downtown on Saturday. Now it looks like a dead city. Hopefully it is not going to last long and everything will come back to normal. I believe!

Easter Egg Hunt

This year Egg Hunt took place different way. Because of the circumstances kids cannot do it together and they’ve chosen very creative and smart way to do it. We found that decorating pebbles during our morning walk in the grass, under the trees and bushes, just aside of trail etc. It is really touching and promising! Children is our bright future! God bless them!

Snow…

On Remembrance Day, November 11 we had a huge snowstorm which last for 14 hours and in the morning we found the Winter Wonderland around. It is too early for the winter but we cannot complain. Mother Nature knows what is better for us. We just have to accept and enjoy!

Christian Dior

In celebration of the House of Dior’s 70th anniversary, Christian Dior explores the brilliance behind Dior’s dramatic creations that revived the entire Paris haute couture industry after the devastation of the Second World War. In 1947, the opening of the new couture house and the revolutionary “New Look” – with soft shoulders, padded hips and long, full skirts – swept away the wartime masculine silhouette making Christian Dior’s postwar fashions desired, worn and copied by women around the world.
