The First of our New Bathroom Purchases

The plans for our new bathroom are all coming together and we are all set to, hopefully, have a shiny new bathroom in September. I know that after having our lounge, hall and Little Man’s room done in May that I said I wouldn’t do anything to the house until next year but I changed my mind – I love to have a plan! Today I’ve made the first purchases…

Our Dream Kitchen

We have been planning our dream kitchen for months. Well years actually, ever since we move into this house. Our kitchen is much bigger than our old kitchen but with a family there just isn’t enough storage space – and the whole house feels a lot smaller than when we bought it. With this in mind we have a grand plan to one day, in a couple of years, extend…

Our Lounge Update

I always knew our lounge would be one of the last rooms in our house to get decorated. I didn’t ever see a time when it would be possible to decorate it.

Well the work started last Monday and the building work was completed and new boiler fitted whilst we were in Wales. We’re basically having the lounge chimney breast removed and then the wall and ceiling made good for decorating and floor filled in. Then Little Man’s room is having the chimney breast and airing…

Organising our Loft

I love our loft – I go up in it literally two or three times a week. It has a pull down ladder, a skylight, lighting and electrics as well as carpet, wood clad ceiling and storage in the eaves. I love having a good amount of storage space and the loft stores everything I need it to. I have always been quite organised with the space in the loft…

New Boilers and Building Work

We had been planning an extension but weighing up the work involved as well as the cost we decided to do some of the work bit by bit before getting the actual extension built. This has led us to investigate getting a new boiler and the house rewired – although that is a job for another day. This year’s main job was always to get Little Man’s big boy bedroom…
