Marijke has helped us before during our move. She viewed the whole house and made a shopping list so that we did not miss out while doing odd jobs and could work very efficiently. She also thought along with the colour plan. This gave a lot of rest in the hectic pace of moving house.
Now it was the turn of the attic to insulate. A job that we dreaded very much. We couldn’t outsource it either on short notice, because all construction companies are so busy nowadays. So I checked with Marijke if she could think along with us. She has worked out the plan for us on how we can insulate the attic step by step, including an order list of which products we need. She thinks of the smallest details, very nice! That means that we have the overview again and are confident that we will succeed in getting this job done.
