So this is the daunting task I am faced with ....
Everytime I look at these photos I suffer from a mild panic attack at the big job ahead of us. But then on the other hand, I am dead excited, raring to go and looking forward to the challenge of restoring this 70 year old Grand Old Dame to her former glory.
Walls are going to replastered and painted, stumps replaced, all existing joinery will be demolished and replaced, bathrooms and laundry will be re-tiled, carpets are being pulled up and floorboards limewashed, the garden will be tamed and a driveway installed.
So from now on my peaceful, ordered existence will became a life of chaos, mess and plaster dust! I like to be hands on in a renovation because there's a greater sense of achievement at the end and it will save a few dollars along the way.
So let the fun begin!
~ I will keep you updated with some progress photos along the way.
Wish me luck!
