Our House


My partner and I bought a house in October 2012 and renovated it. We started by thinking we would do 'a bit of decorating', but this has turned in to ripping nearly everything out of the premises and starting from scratch. A couple of people have asked to see photos to see how we are doing so I thought I would share our journey...

The original state -



The lounge


The garden


Bathroom


The Kitchen

Now...

Keep thos pictures coming...I love to watch a reno project!!!

I think the lovely thing thing about purchasing a house that needs work (a they call it here, is that you end up with exactly what YOU want. Not what the previous owner wanted!
Have fun!!!

Oh goody, l love being nosey lol.

Such a great idea to track your progress Laura, you certainly will enjoy looking back once the house is finished. You've both taken on a mammoth task but it will be stunning by the time you've finished.

Our house needed gutting when we first bought it but it's lovely now. It's hard work and somedays you may fell totally fed up with all the mess, dust etc but it'll soon be forgotten once your enjoying your new home.

TFS, can't wait for the next instalment :)

This will be fabulous to look back on .. .. especially when it is all finished and how you want it to be.

I hope you like gardening!!!

Wishing you lot of happiness in your home.

Love Jules xx

OMG! You're a brave woman . . . I simply couldn't tackle a task like this. I just know it'll look wonderful once you've made it your own . . . but that looks like A LOT of HARD WORK in the meantime! I mean . . . ceilings TOO??????

What a great undertaking...have done this before myself...bought a duplex, gutted it and turned it into a single family dwelling. Love your plan for the new kitchen...it looks wonderful! The great thing about this kind of project is that everything is new and you get to pick it yourself! I can't wait to see updates!
