This is a live note I’m taking to keep up with the progress of my home setup project. I’m trying to cover from the start to understand how my new home is going to take shape with new pieces I’m going to fill in. Why I’m doing this? Well, it’s my very first home. I feel the ownership of creating a space for my family. It’s a small, flat home for four people: myself, my wife, and my two kids, Tom and Sophie. So are you ready to through what I’ve documented so far?

I’m a fan of IKEA. I’ve got a side business trading IKEA items. Therefore, I’ve got most of the IKEA home stuff and furniture for my home own home. I love it.
