Finally getting the floorplan documented for all eternity on here! This is our little place. As you can see, the 'bathroom' was huge when we moved in, and we've been able to add in a little 3rd bedroom in that space, while also keeping a reasonable sized bathroom. We loved the separate hallway which was one of our 5 non negotiables and we're so impressed with the 'living' now dining room space. Happy with the kitchen too, I've just added an island onto the 'next house' list. #floorplan#firsthome#derbyshirerenovation#derbyshirehome#victorianrenovation#victorianterrace
Day 20 - Flowers in the ... kitchen. I always collect bits and pieces from the yard to put in the kitchen, snapped stems, herbs and seed heads. This week they’ve found their way into one of my favourite jugs. It always reminds me of Tunbridge Wells where I spent 10 very happy years bringing up my lovely daughter as I bought it in the ‘pretty shop’ as she called it! I can’t actually remember what it was really called but I obviously spent too much time in there! I’m going down that way tomorrow to catch up with some friends and also celebrate my mums 80th Birthday so it feels very apt (hence plant watering!). Nowadays we are up in Liverpool of course which I love in a different way and which confirms to me I am naturally a city person ... but I do have very fond memories of our time in Tunbridge Wells! . . . @myhousethismonth @littlehouseinlondon @__itslucy__ @light_up_north @storyofmyhome #myhousethismonth#victorianterrace#victorianhouse#periodfeatures#periodhomesofinsta#dailyposts#homedecor#home#interiordetails#realhomesofinstagram#colourmyhome#greathomestaketime#storyofmyhome#letterboxhome#august
We haven't really showed any pictures of the living room in a while and this is why !! We have an old gravity fed heating system (something I hadn't even heard of until I moved to this house !) And an old timer (that turns the heating system on/off) which needs to be changed. We knew that in order to upgrade the system we would have to pull up the flooring for a new larger gas pipe and so hadn't decided put on any skirting yet ! Well after almost two years we finally saved the money (££ it's very pricey) to upgrade to a combi boiler ! We have also purchased #thenest learning thermostat! We are very excited to have a thermostat instead of a timer. More pictures on this to come next week !!
The perfectionist hard at work! Painting has officially taken us about 9 days thanks to this one's quest for a totally blemish free finish. 😂 I bowed out from proceedings about 6 days ago, leaving this one to power on alone. TBF he's done a fab job but I'm just eager to get the cardboard off our kitchen to start cooking 😋
So today is survey day. Our vendors still haven’t found anywhere but it’s making me nervous that a massive flaw will come up on the survey and we have wasted too long looking not for other places. So we’re going to cross our fingers for the survey and that their dream home comes to market 🖤
