I thought it was about time I got to posting some piccies of the work we had done last year. Yeah I know it’s been months since I promised anything, but to be honest my heart wasn’t in the taking of the pics at the time. There was just too much stress and anxiety surrounding the last leg of the build.
I love what we have and I’m not complaining, but, as I’m sure with anyone else who’s hired contractors to do the work, there are still little niggles that bug the hell out of me! Luckily most people don’t notice the annoying little things and are just amazed at the transformation. SO, without further ado, let me introduce to you our newest room in the house…
So that’s the ‘Green Sofa Room?!’
This is the new kitchen…
And I couldn’t let the outside go without a mention…
It has to be said I’m the least pink girl my friends know, but I just love this colour on the outside walls. I wanted something that would be far away from terracotta or boring beige, but didn’t want green, or blue as there is plenty of that in nature within the garden.
I designed the garden in about 2 hours with the hubs help. I just looked at loads of garden pics and pieced together elements I liked. The garden has a a bit of a slope so had to work with levels. It actually works rather well and our son loves riding his bike on the ramps and jumps.
This whole space, inside and out, has totally transformed the house but it has mostly transformed our lives in the house. It was definitely worth it.
All I need to do now is shoot the neighbours ruddy dog. Only kidding, it’s a pup in training and barks at us whenever we’re in the garden. It’s actually very cute, but getting really annoying when we just want peace and quite. Don’t think training is going very well… give it me for a couple of hours and I’ll have it trained!
So, in a nutshell that’s our new gaff, or rather, old gaff with new use from an outhouse and outside bog. It’s by no means finished. We still have painting to do and tidying and staining and furniture to build and a sail to put up and the list goes on… but come on, it’s pretty damn nice eh?
