[hr]It has been on the list for a long time to make some better accommodations on the second floor of our Tirana guest apartment. Now with Cydil and Nathan making plans to live there we have decided to get some work done. Today we had the floor cut out to make way for a spiral stairway to go back and forth from the second to the first floor. Also, we cut out a doorway to make the kitchen accessible from the living room. When it is all completed it will make hosting guests much easier. In the photos we didn’t capture the dust that flew when the jack hammer was working. I’ll just say that the workman was grateful when I handed him a mask to wear.
