Adding Accents to our Home with Posterlounge

We finished our extension a few months ago now and are slowly making it feel like home. At first it was a pretty bare room but we’ve been adding accessories and furniture to make it into a usable, homely space.

Our Pre-Extension Home

Well today marks the start of the work to extend our home. All being well it should be mostly finished in time for Christmas – and I cannot wait to see our home at the end of the work. But for now I thought I’d share a before of our home so you can see our current home before the extension starts. The downstairs of our home is just two rooms,…

Our Extension – Another Step Forward!

Well last month I wrote about how planning had been approved for our extension and now we are in the position where we have all our ducks in a row to actually start building our extension. If all goes well we should be getting started by the end of September! Although we knew that walls would be coming down and a big chunk of our garden would be dug up…
