It's always a great thought isn't it......buying a house that you need to do up. One word of advice.....DON'T!!!! ;o) we've only just started the renovations and its already annoying us. Baring in mind I think the most annoying thing is getting the right, reliable tradesmen in. Hopefully we're now on a winner and things will progress more smoothly.
Our lovely lounge room is the current focus, we got a wood burner out in just before Christmas, then went into a 'seasonal lull'. It took until April to finally get the motivation to strip down the rest if the lounge.....and what a mess!! The worse thing was our chosen plasterer went away on hols so we've had to have this mess of a lounge for 2 weeks.
Poor Kenny and Nyota, they are both missing their afternoon kips on the lounge and quite frankly that was the only time they were out of my hair so I'm missing it too!!
The plastering starts today......
