I’ve had a large number of enquiries as to the status of our house renovations – and many times I’ll reply with monosyllabic neanderthal-like tones. In reality, the house is actually progressing with surprising speed – and also, with an astonishingly large amount of money being funnelled into the whole thing. Yes, we did budget quite a bit of cash to the whole affair – but still that amount of money was no compromise for the “little surprises”. Yes, those little surprises – like the cost of windows. Or the cost of replacing the architraves when the window guy then bashes them out while he’s putting your windows in with ham-fisted accuracy.
Anyway, since I’m currently being blasted away with the power of an on-going headache and a cup of overwhelmingly strong black tea, I’m going to allow the below miniature gallery of shots to talk for themselves. Just a little heads-up, these shots are not very recent. In fact, these shots were taken BEFORE our Reno Guy (Sam) had even started heaving the ceilings out – these images give you an idea of the tragedy that we had to work with. Yes, hark! Wooden wall panelling!
