So it’s time to share the ‘moving in’ pictures of the new house! This time, I was patient enough to get some photos whilst it was still empty.
The house is very old (nobody quite knows when it dates back to) which manifests itself in lots of ‘character’ – there are wonky walls and floors galore! It’s definitely a project and we were lucky enough to buy it for an absolute steal at just the right time. Hopefully it will last us for a long time.
The side door leads you straight into the kitchen, complete with amazing extra-long butler sink, wooden beams and vintage cooker.
Off to the left are a very handy utility room and the main bathroom, complete with very lovely macerator sticker on the bathroom door… nice
Stairs lead down from the kitchen to the basement. I’d love to create a little gym down here and am keeping my eyes peeled on Freegle/Gumtree for equipment (I need to get there first before it becomes a man cave!)
The living room is my favourite room in the house with its big windows and beautiful floor
Upstairs are the big and little offices (mine is the dinky one!) for our new working-from-home adventures
And two bedrooms, with a strange assortment of windows and some lovely stained walls
Finally on the top floor, there’s an amazing attic room with lots of potential. I have grand visions of an amazing master suite … a girl can dream!
There’s also a little bit of outside space with an asbestos-ridden garage to contend with, but that’s a story for another day!
Watch this space, as we begin this thrifty renovation in 2015… Why not follow along on Instagram?
