Some times in November we decided to start looking for another apartment to purchase in Ronda. The main goal what we described among us it has to be very different style than Calle Sevilla. Other words we keen to do a very modern style, very fresh, like minimalist apartment.
The other goal what we appointed and emphases that new apartment has to be very close to city center but not too close, hence parking with car shouldn’t be such a big issue than in the downtown. ( even we offer a free garage but really tight )
Overall 4-5 weeks we spent to looking for, and we have seen a lot of options were really bed conditions. However we have had a limited budget, we skipped any apartment should have been 100 % destroy inside and there after rebuild.
Right after we found the best of our knowledge target we split the project. Heni has had the interior design and I have had the construction and project management.
We established a detailed BOQ ( block of quote ) and invite a few construction company / guys to place offer for us. Because of Christmas was coming in a month we didn’t have too much time for planing, as from 15th December until 7th January nothing happened in Andalusia.
As soon as we selected the construction resources the first things was remove the doors, the frames, and dig some channels in the floor for additional electric cables.
It had to be luxury but minimalist style, Heni decide 2 shade of grey as wall paint, white doors, and white grey Saboya laminated floor.
As in Ronda any construction ( and design ) materials are 50 % higher price than for example in Leroy Merlin in Marbella, we tried to avoid any purchase here and used to go down to Leroy. The guys as well talked down about how shit the quality of products from Leroy …
– Ne pasa nada, es barato 🙂 – I said.
All construction works ( with Sergio ) kept about 2.5 months. We changed the doors, setup new electric networks for a/c and heatings, change all lights, all plugs and switches, setup 4 cool and heat a/c units, setup cornices, and paint the walls in two different colors. Finally we place a new floor. In the bedrooms set up new town heater radiators, small things why the apartment looks like luxury.
Finally arrived the new furnitures, setting up curtains, flat TV, high speed internet, and featured the kitchen with a large dining table with 6 chairs, and all necessary equipments for cooking, including microwave, cafe machine, toaster, fridge, dish washer.
Heni ( always ) took her attention to be luxury the bedrooms, two have large beds, led lights with music streaming options. The saloon got a really big L shape sofa, with additional two other seatings, especially fitted for 6 persons.
Today we have finished the project. I would say we ( Heni and me ) are happy even the construction guy Sergio was really proud the result.
The apartment is ready to book, we have already couple of new booking…
Muchas gracias para Sergio y su equipo, obras calidad son muy muy alto.
