House Renovation - Part 8

Funny, I just noticed all my previous House Renovation posts had 2016 in the title, but of course I can no longer put that! Happy 2017 everyone! Wonder if that year in the title was a bit of over-optimistic wishful thinking from me back when we started this project...

Anyhow, if you have no idea what I'm talking about, you can pop over to House Renovation 2016 - Part 1 where I show you our lovely new house that we bought back then (offer made in September 2015, finally ours in December 2015!).

Here's the little video update I made on January 2nd (please remember, I'm definitely no professional vlogger!) to bring the renovation diaries up to date:
The two girls walking back into the new house after a couple of months 'off' while it was a serious building site... 
Except the house wasn't all that lovely in terms of modernisation (am sure it held many happy memories for previous owners though), and definitely only 'new' to us, so we embarked on a fairly extensive renovation project which I decided to share with everyone here on the blog. Part 6 of the project gives a video start-to-finish update which covers most of what happened before building started. 
Being the kind of girl who never really desperately wanted to undergo a huge building project, I do tend to feel guilty that this kind of fell into our laps as I feel like someone else would have totally relished this opportunity. However, we couldn't find another property in the area we were hoping for and so began a bit of a story....

The new staircase leading up to our loft room - the most exciting part of the build so far!

Last time I updated my blog about the house was back in September, so there's been a fair amount of work since then of course. It's still very much a building site, but we are getting flashes of what our home may look like. We are now in full on 'deciding' mode as we speak to first kitchen and then bathroom experts, with a good dash of electricity and plumbing decisions being rashly made alongside those chats.

If anyone fancies leaving me comments with style ideas, sources of inspiration or what they love/hate about their own kitchen/bathroom etc, I'd love to read them all this week!

Hope you've enjoyed this update; if you'd like to go back to the beginning, here's my other related posts:
