So, this is our new home. There's a lot of work to do, perhaps more than we thought when we'd first looked round, but we plan on being here for a long time so we'll get it done!
Would you like a guided tour?
This is the hallway, we're going to paint it yellow.
The first room you come to is the living room. Complete with ladders and all the carpet that we ripped up. The previous owners had dogs/cats/cigarettes/an aversion to cleaning, so the carpets were gross and pretty stinky.
Next is the kitchen/dining room. I have a feeling this is where all our money will go! There is a lot of interesting pipe work and electric work going on!
The dining room leads to the conservatory. It's so gorgeous! I'm going to put a day bed in there for luxurious lounging!
The garden, so far I've seen a great tit and a squirrel!
The first room upstairs is the bathroom. If anyone knows how long you have to not clean your bathroom, for it to be completely black behind the toilet, please let me know. Sadly we can't afford a new bathroom for a while, but I spent 3 hours cleaning it so we'll live with it for now.
This will be our bedroom. Hopefully there's room for us to build in a wardrobe.
This will be Joe's computer room. He's painting it gray.
This is the view from our lounge window. I think it's lovely!
We've spent all weekend cleaning, so it's feeling a bit more like 'ours' now. Joe bought a steam cleaner, which has been powering through the years of dog hair and dirt. Seriously, it's so so dirty in there. And the boiler broke today! And we opened the dishwasher to find a George Forman gill, on a pile of newspapers and a curly wurly!
We'll get there! Any home renovation tips?
