Remaking an old house
To replace part of the basement, the house had toEntirely raised with jacks. Maxim, the head of the family, rediscovered and painted the roof, replaced some of the boards in the walls.

I was glad that as it is an old school,The rooms in it were very large and spacious. On the first floor there is a living room, a dining room, a kitchen, a bedroom for parents, a study, two bathrooms and a pantry. The living room was decorated with a fireplace, which was made from a disassembled stove. In addition, the living room has access to the terrace.
In the kitchen, they folded the stove - this is not one day of painstaking work.
Furniture cost inexpensively. Except homemade, they took it in a warehouse of defective furniture (a broken leg of the table, a lack of parts, scratches, etc.). It cost only 25% of the face value. A little work and imagination - no one would ever think that before the furniture was defective.
