The renovations in pictures.

Here are a few picture of the house, before and after the renovations. We are by no means finished either inside or out so take note when you see bare walls and patchy paint. We have so much more to do. The list is like a huge weight. But, weekend after weekend we manage to get something done and this slow progress makes us blissfully happy.

We havent actually started renovating the back of the house (kitchen, bathroom, laundry) as this will be expensive. However, we managed to make some small changes to the existing kitchen to make it a tad more livable.

Wow! Nice work. That is a massive reno project you've got yourself there. It is such a rewarding experience though. I was gutted when we sold our little house a few years back that we'd put some much blood, sweat and tears into. Keep up the brilliant work, it's paying off!!!!

Wow - what a transformation! Gorgeous. Well done you two. I know when you're renovating it's hard because all you see is what is still to be done - but keep looking at these photos to see how far you've come! x

You & Ben have done a beautiful job on the renos, I love the simplicity.
