Just over 3 years ago, we moved into a house where nothing had been decorated or changed since around 1980. We knew there would be a lot of work to do and that it would take time as we would be doing it all ourselves working around full time jobs. The front room, 2 bedrooms & my sewing room were completed within the first 15 months but then work came to a halt as our plans for the bathroom and kitchen which involved knocking down walls and adding an extension was going to need a fair amount of money thrown at it which we just didn't have at the time as we were also saving for a 'big birthday' holiday. A year on from that birthday, work has resumed and it finally feels that we're getting somewhere again. We've taken down the wall between the bathroom and toilet to give us room to add a separate shower, the old metal bathroom window with its rotten wood frame has been replaced with a new UPVC window, and the old toilet window has been removed and bricked up. It's good to finally be able to visualize the new space we have and can start planning the bathroom properly. Now the fun really begins, I think it's going to be a busy year!!
