A few piccies

I'm very happy to announce settlement has gone through and we are the proud owners of a rundown piece of local history.

Thanks to everyone for your kind words, advice and encouragement through what has been a stressful couple of weeks.

 Soon, the hard work will really begin -- here's a few more photos taken recently, which I think show not only the incredible amount of work needed here but also a hint of what she might be at the end of the process.

  2. Congratulations to you both. Such lovely fretwork and french doors. Such not so lovely lino which I imagine is layers thick and an interesting assortment of wall colours! We expect a room by room walk through you know. mel x

  3. Yeah congratulations it must be a huge relief now that everything has gone through and it's your home. It's good to have lots of before photos too even if they make you cringe at all the work ahead of you because when it's done you'll be able to look back and see how much work you've done. We took lots all except for the bathroom room,I wish we had of before it was demolished by my hubby and brother. Your front door is exactly like ours:) I look forward to seeing your progress. Enjoy setting up and being in your home in time for Christmas.

  5. Phew and Happy move in day - Yeah!

    The potential is incredible and lots of scope for putting your own mark on it too. It will be a labour of love and I wish you well and look forward to the updates. In time for Christmas too - that house knew it wanted you right from the word go.

    Take care

  14. Lol, I had that exact same lino through my living room! It is all gone now. Make sure to wear masks when ripping up any old places, all sorts of gross stuff is in the air when you start clearing, and maybe asbestos around (just be careful).. good luck, I am glad the settlement is finished and take your time with the work and enjoy it!

  19. Congratulations, she looks nice and solid and soooo full of potential.
    Wait a year, to see what the weather does to various rooms, before you decide on any major changes, I once lived in a farm house that had NO SHADE and the kitchen and toddlers bedroom were on the West side.....just crazy.
    Hope you will have fun working on getting her beautiful and family friendly.

  22. Congratulations! I dropped by originally from DTE and have just caught up. "Interesting" house purchases are not good the first time around but now you own the house you can make your dreams become reality. Hoping you are all over the nasty bug and enjoy your first Christmas in your new home :D!
