House Renovation 2016 - Part 4

Time for a little update on the house renovation front. You'd never have guessed, but there's more wallpaper stripping in this one...

Slightly more interesting than just that though, as I try and bring you up to date on where we are with the planning situation. Feeling slightly more positive about it this week than we were last, but it's not over until..... well, let's just wait and see what happens next. Amended plans have gone back in, and we're happy with them as much as we can be.

One thing we have learnt is that there's always compromises to be made. On a certain plot width, and working with an original house, your hands are always going to be a little bit tied. Knocking down and starting again seems a) to cost an extortionate amount of money and b) such a shame when you like the original house. So we're not doing that. We will of course end up with a gorgeous house anyway, so much to still be excited about.

I'll leave you with some pics of the gorgeous garden we have inherited... plenty of work to be done there too of course but it sadly can't be top of our list right now..
