On Friday the 27th of February we finally picked up the keys to our very first home!
Since then we have been hard at it turning it into a home we will love. The house was well cared for but very old & dated and desperate for a complete make-over.
So far it has been mainly wallpaper scraping as whoever lived in the house before us absolutely loved the stuff it was in every room of the house including the ceiling and some rooms had a lovely surprise second layer of wallpaper waiting for us. It’s fair to say wallpaper is my nemesis and I am now a fully paid up member of the I hate wallpaper club. Today we made our biggest change and knocked down the wall separating the Kitchen and dining room to make a big dining kitchen it has made a massive difference as the kitchen was rather cramped but now it big and bright.
Anyway first things first I’ll give you a tour of the house before any work was started on it.
So far all of the rooms apart from the hallway, 2nd bedroom & 3rd bedroom have been stripped and carpets removed. Every room is having a complete revamp and I will be showing you the plans & ideas room by room as we go by now that the walls gone we’re just waiting for the boiler to be moved into the loft as it’s currently in the bathroom once that’s done we can start plastering and really seeing everything come together. We hope to have everything done and be moved in before the wedding which gives us 4 months so keep your fingers crossed for us!
I hope you’ll follow us for the ride 2015 is turning out to be a very very busy year!
