Ремонт (Remont)

Case in point-
This can go on for hours. You'd think that 15 minutes of drilling would solve whatever problem you have, or at least you'd remodel once and get it over with (aka finish!), but this has been going on for the whole time I've been here. It's so loud that whenever it starts, it's a cue for us to find something to do outside. Inclement weather be damned. Occasionally, just for variety, we'll get some hammering. Again, what earthly item needs to be hammered for two hours? Weekly? For 8 months??

Items like this pop up in the hallway landings randomly and then vanish after a couple of days...

...but the drilling continues!!! As best as I can figure, they must be constructing a spaceship up there.

I'm ready for the launch date.


  1. I think it sounds like a generator, not a drill. And, the apartment is looking much better than when I lived there. Kathi

  2. Looks like your neighbors just removing a thin wall between toilet and bathroom.
    And the roaring sound is the opposite side of living in reinforced concrete buildings designed to withstand -40C in winter, not in plywood summer cottages ;)

    1. Haha, I like how you say that they are "just" removing a thin wall, like it's as casual as sweeping the floor :p

      The thing is- this sound has been going on for months. Wouldn't they just remove the whole wall in a couple of days or week and then be done with it? From all of their constant commotion it sounds like one week they destroy the wall and the next week they rebuild it!
