Griet and Maarten met while studying in Ghent and like many others, after their graduation they chose to make it their home base. When they first viewed a house right by the Gent-Dampoort train station, they quickly decided they had to have it. After all, in a big city like Ghent you need to be quick to snap up the deal!
They signed the papers in a weekend. “We had already viewed many old houses that still needed a lot of work, and to be honest, we felt that was too much of a challenge. When we found our house, it had just been completely renovated and all we had to do was change the kitchen. That was the ideal scenario for us”, Griet explains.
With some help from DIY enthusiasts in the family, Griet and Maarten designed a custom kitchen that seamlessly blends in with the dining and living room. They kept the polished concrete floor on the entire ground floor. Upstairs, they have the bathroom, the master bedroom and the bedroom of their daughter Frida.
