Stripy room


After - all we have done so far is take off the stuff that was on the windows. 

Bathroom, laundry, office, hall

The hall before with heaps of stuff

And a blank canvas for work in progress. Plan is to bring forward the door to it's original spot and replace the window with lead light

 The fish toilet seat went on the first day we moved in...

Walls are the same colour but just look darker.  Thinking of making this smaller to make the bathroom bigger.

Bathroom before with lots of shelves and stuff.

With all the tiles off the wall showing the six colours of paint!

There doesn't seem to be a "before" of the office but this is the "during".  This was the kitchen until a couple of years ago.

Our room


During - these pics almost look worse but it is just the light!

Blue room

Blue room during



After - in progress - the fireplace is going to go and behind my makeshift curtain is a window Andrew cut out which needs the framing fixed.



A work in progress - the ugly tiles are going to go and the kitchen and dining may get bigger

Front yard


After - in progress so more to come!

Back yard

The back yard is pretty much all Andrew's amazing work.

Before - was very overgrown.

Taking everything out

Much bigger looking!

We discovered rose bushes and a little lemon tree we didn't even know we had!
