The ups and downs of renovating a house

…or two

It’s beginning to look ‘real’

We can now see how a lot of things are going to look later on once they are completely finished…we have a bathtub installed, the walls are all done & our new french window is completely in.  It’s gonna be great!

Here are a few of my latest pictures:


The boiler which is will be in the downstairs cloakroom…you won’t see it because it will be boxed in.

This used to be a door and will now be the window to the back garden.  Our sink will be there.  Of course, it’s the wrong window as the glass is not clear, so it’s going to be changed…but still look similar (but with clear versus security glass).  I like that it looks a lot like our new French doors.

Our tub has been partially installed…yay!  And tiling is meant to begin near the end of next week.

Isn’t it lovely?

Here are a couple of views of the kitchen (the new wall is now in place)…

This is the view from the back of the kitchen…you can see the French doors & the new kitchen window.  The cabinets on the bottom will go almost to the doors (but not quite)…they will continue along the right side wall.

This is the side and back of the kitchen…the cabinets go to the end of the kitchen & at the back is the fridge.

And here is our master bedroom beginning to look ‘normal’.


A little update in words:  3 weeks until it is done according to our contractor.  Yes, you heard me…3 weeks!  Woo hoo…we might be able to move in before we head to the States!

  1. Three weeks!!! That´s so exciting. I´ll be crossing my fingers that everything keeps going as scheduled. Moving into a new house is always exciting, and even more so when it´s your own! Congrats.
