Well, will tredipation I looked back, almost a year ago to discover it was the time when we started on our first major project, our lounge room. As you will see from the post, the room was uninhabitable thanks to the putrid state of it (which doesn't come up in pics). If you had a sniffing capability on you computer right now - you'd turn it off! It had been used as a toilet by a couple of small dogs prior to our purchase. Ugghhh!! The carpet was still wet and we ripped it up within half an hour of getting the keys on settlement day.
You can read the post here.
Here is the room now...
As you can see Lyn jack hammered out the concrete, fitted new floorboards in the gaps, built in a new fireplace, installed the heater, removed old lights and power points and installed new ones. We had the floors polished and fancy cornice installed.We restored the windows, installed new skirting and picture rail that I sketched off the original and had made up. Finally we painted ( I fell off the ladder and knocked myself out!) and moved on in!
We both really love the room and it reminds us of what we will hopefully be able to do to the rest of Molly's Maison over time.
PS, here's a pic of our little furry helper. She discovered old bones under the floor which she ate and then vomited during the middle of the night! Yuck!
