Anyway, is your man the walking dictionary? That is what my wife calls me! Too funny. I am lucky to only have to remember words in a couple of languages. I recall you are up to 4 or 5 or something? Does Finnish really count though, it is mostly all the letter i and a bunch of extra dots strewn above them, no?

I'm going to let you translate my response to the rest.

Sitä hän on. Todella ärsyttyvää sillä hän ei edes tiedä, onko kyseessä lehti- vai kuusipuu. Hän kyllä pystyy kääntämään sanat paremmin kuin minä, mutta erittäin insinöörimäisesti.

Englanti on kolmas tahi neljäs kieleni. Olen kohtuullisen hyvä tässä mutta myönnän että dysleksiani aiheuttaa varsin huvittavia mokia usein.

Suomenkieli on kaikkea muuta kuin pari i- kirjainta, saati yläpilkkuja. Hakukone yhteinen jota käytät tämän kääntämiseen ei tule saamaan merkityksiä lainkaan oikein. Suomi on sille liian monimutkainen.

Good luck with it.

I have taken your advice and translated it - hehe - using the common search engine you referenced! The part about the newspaper and the spruce log is my favorite.

Here it is:

That's what he is. Really annoying because he does not even know whether it is a newspaper or spruce logs. He certainly is able to translate the words better than I do, but very engineery.
English is the third Tahi fourth tongue. I'm reasonably good at this but I admit that dyslexia causes quite amusing bugs often.
Finnish language is anything but a couple of letters i, let alone an apostrophe. Common search engine that you will use this translation is not going to get meanings at all correct. Finland has it too complicated.

This is why finns have no friends!

I laughed more than you. I still have an essay written in german I describe how beautiful I find spring and the newspapers growing in trees.

My teacher wrote to the bottom that she is happy to see I'm being more creative but "Dali wasn't creative. He was high. Pick your words or your role models better."

That was very simple Finnish. The google did good.

I still have zero clue what I will do with the flat when done, but it will look pretty damn good.

Love the way that backsplash looks. Super classy. Wood grained tile I assume?

That is brilliant. I need to learn to do more things like that.

I'm currently working on my modernist kitchen with White Zeus Extreme Silestone quartz counter-tops with a 6cm build-up and waterfall sides, Zenit Rimoniot faucet, slide-in range with induction cook-top and double oven, carrerra marble slab back-splash, and immersion circulator machines ready to go in the pantry.

However, that may never be completed because I'm about to go f*ucking insane thanks to my counter-top contractor. I have a huge kitchen island that they have literally, with no exagerration, have had to start from scratch with a fresh new slab 5 times. Yes friends, 5 muther f*ucking times. That's assuming they get it right the next time of course. They were just by today to install the 4th iteration and shocker, it was not the right size. 3 times they didn't cut the right size and once the island and over sections of the counter-top fell off the truck when they took a sharp turn without it being properly secured.

About to lose my mind.

Thanks for listening to me vent and if it ever gets finished I'll post a pic!

Wow! I am jealous of all of this resourcefulness.

I dread this coming weekend because I need to have curtains for a few windows and blinds in a few more.

I always wish I had the confidence to do a huge reno project.

Yup. I spent a lot of time finding the right tile since I wanted one with a pattern but also a texture.

I drive myself nuts with my projects. I spent weeks looking for the right lights and now that the project is almost done (the whole flat), I am going nuts because I need to make a rug out of cheep skins.

Why you ask?

Because I'm a detail freak and my tiny mind has decided I need a cheep skin rug. Now I can't accept anything else to it's place and I'm too cheap to buy one.

Of course the cheeps can only be produced in certain countries and naturally the quality of fur is an issue too. (and this is why nobody likes me when I get myself into this mode)... :cry:

Are Cheeps the same thing as those things I count when I can't sleep at night, white furry buggers kinda like goats but with more hair?

Sheeps?

Very tastefully done. Are those lamps above the countertop 900 lumens or so? They look like 3500K. Really like the back wall/splash. Thanks for sharing.

Yes. They mixed the reddish color in when they mixed the concrete, then sprayed the darker accent color over the top. When I added my pergola over the seating area I had to buy a hammer drill and drill into the concrete a few inches to anchor it. I was SO nervous that I would crack it!

Lol sheep! Apparently it is now a cheep.

No clue how I've managed to do this but yes, your sleep buddies if raised and taken ard for according to the standards I agree to, are at risk.

Cheep. No clue.

No, the ones above are 3k or so. They are just stretching their cords there, they are not at their future hight yet.



Dispite help... I got the flooring done today.
