The past 2 months have been hectic! Unfortunately, most of the action has related to work/family/study/moving into a half-renovated house, rather than on the actual renovation.
Oh well. We are getting there – slowly.
It is quite frustrating, yet exciting all at the same time. The time it takes, and the effort involved in doing it ourselves, make the results all the more exciting.
Recent conversations have been along the lines of;
“Wow babe, you really got that plaster smooth!”
“Thanks hun. How is that skirting board painting coming along?”
Really exciting stuff here people, let me tell you :)
OK, so some pics:
Miss I’s bedroom.
Walls stripped down to the studs. Lighting removed due to fire hazard wiring (eek!), plastic wall vents removed, insulation better fitted in ceiling cavity.
Looking towards bedroom door. Miss I’s bedroom shares a wall with Miss T’s bedroom (where hubs is standing). The rubbish came by the wheel barrow load.
Miss T’s bedroom:
Standing in the doorway or so.
Looking towards common wall with main bedroom (Master bedroom is a bit of a stretch given its’ size, lol).
Standing near the window, looking out the door. Across the small space in the smaller bathroom. Have faith people! We have plans for that area ;)
One aspect I have enjoyed in this reno has been unearthing some of the history of the home. This has included finding the use of newspapers underneath the old lino.
In Miss I’s room:
In Miss T’s room:
OK, enough pics for now.
I have some preliminary after pics to come. Wish me well as I am still vacuuming dust out of the couch and rugs, not to mention my poor computer. A drop-cloth would have been handy ;)
