picture shows a young man's room, moved out for college. Assembling his first ALEX - a turquoise small filing cabinet. This is how it starts, and this is how it must be - the Youth must be given opportunity to be YOUNG, regardless of the costs to the investors.
Swedish Socialism is the way forward, I promise - Stability and Ingenuity is the 1 step.
*This is the space* that I had a vested personal interest that it be done properly - my son's 1st place. Check out my YouTube, Insta and Reddit for valuable information - we did a lot in this space. From un-warrantable sub-floors and how to deal with them, all the way to 'hey, going with a budget Luxury Vinyl Plank, what is a good one, do you know..?'.
What is REDDIT...? It's the best place - if you are looking for useful information on a particular subject, it could even be a very niche information, then you are likely to find it on REDDIT, get the app. Seniority on REDDIT matters and there are mechanisms in place to deal with influx of manipulation or disinformation - Subject Matter Experts in whatever, answer and contribute to discussions, it's a fun place to be and your influence can be great.

Housing Crisis is real and Swedish Socialism is the best cure for it - no way around it. Do you want to pay higher prices..? Do you want to introduce instability to your necessary renovation..? Do you want to rely on uncreative, unreliable, and inexperienced labour for success of your project..?
Then I say go to Swedish Socialism dot com, and join. I promise you that you will find a community of individuals who are just like you, looking for fun times. Let's dream together.
Chapter 1 - Budgets TOUGH - how to get thru this Tough Time
Many of us will find our budgets tightened over the next 12-16 months. It may be challenging emotionally as we delay our projects yet again, or wait for 'better opportunity'. These things happen, it's part of life and you will pull through.
My advice is this: REMAIN Creative - use cheap accessible methods to quickly contextualize your ideas in your own space. One of the best pieces of feedback I received from a client [sadly an unrealized project] - was this 'We even like the fake books you put it.' -----> I will find the picture and upload it! I ~always~ add those 'imaginary details'; I let your mind fill in the blanks. By the way, I know exactly why I 'put those books' there - it was to create the size of the book so I could properly gauge the rhythm of the space. Clearly the client had a great response to it - it was totally Stealth Design; I am consciously testing my ideas on the client, 'Do they like it? Do they not like it..?'.
----> 'Let me tell you, people know exactly what they don't
like because they refuse to pay, hahahaha.
So make sure you LIKE, ok..?'
Alright, back to Design!
I scavenge for design elements alone, as they retain value and are made in traditional historic ways. Doors are always doors.

I ended up creating a Parsons Table as part of a school project - I am furniture designer by education. I found that exercise quite intriguing and challenging. My own version of Parsons Table in solid wood was a failure - my bossman's version tho is a successes.
