Finally, the house is finished. And here are the photos to prove it. They were taken by Pernilla of House of Locations, who thinks it might earn a bit of a living posing behind actors and models. We’ll see. In the meantime, for those of you who have asked how the renovations are going, here is how they went.
This was the door to the kitchen on the first floor.
The original bathroom redefined the word “squalid”. It was so awful that there are no before images.
This first floor room was our sitting room when we moved in and needed only some heavy decoration to spruce it up a bit. It’s now the spare room and, when needed, a television and games room for the boys.
The master bedroom had a bright blue carpet and magnolia woodchip on the walls. We built that purple wall across the room and which is a walk-through cupboard and dressing area leading to the bathroom next door, which was a bedroom.
Downstairs, which was formerly a one bedroom flat, the sitting room was knocked into one large space but as the rooms are on different levels, it retains a certain amount of separateness.
And, finally, the kitchen, which has been written about previously, but this time with better pictures.
The before pictures were taken on my phone. The after shots were taken by www.houseoflocations.com
