Welcome To Granny Ville

"Have you seen the house they've bought, aw god its so old and minging." No hun. You're minging. This place is an investment so save ya negativity for someone else. *hair flip*

In order for this to work, you're going to need vision, you're going to need to be able to see past the green carpet and the salmon pink bathroom. But most of all, your going to have to come running when I ring you crying cos I can't strip another wall of wood chip. Luckily, I have my dad for that. Cuddles and DIY help. The dream. 

I thought i'd show you some progress pictures at long last! Ok so we've decided to tackle this house room by room. Meaning so far we've only really started renovating two rooms. For us this is a lot more manageable. We both work full time and so its weekends and evenings we have spare. By choosing to renovate in this way, we can also stay at the house as one of the bedrooms is liveable and functional, ok its old but who cares. I spend a considerable amount of time watching the back of my eyelids so the decor for the time being is somewhat irrelevant.  

Next I stripped the wall paper, oh and blew a load of plaster, queue the skimmer.... he's arriving first week of nov. pics to follow. 

Also took the fire out and sold it on gumtree, who the hell wants this? SOLD within an hour. 

Then the fire people came to open her up.... and.....

We've chosen a Burley Log Burner and she's so beaut!!!!

We're still awaiting skimming, decorating, carpets and the fitting of the oak beam. 


stay tuned for tuesday and watch us light dis baby up
