The Cottage Renovation – Getting The Keys

For anyone that knows me personally, they know the old cottage has been a long time coming. We’ve been shacked up in a mobile home for the last two years, waiting and waiting… and waiting to start the renovation. But the time has finally come and here it is!

So it looks like it’s seen better days but there’s plenty of life left in the old dog yet! Not him. Or him. I mean the house πŸ˜‰

 

As soon as we received the keys, we were straight in there. Do you have a weak stomach? You might want to scroll through the next bit pretty quickly!

The smell was unbearable. The house was dark, filthy and smoke-stained.

So far we’ve been getting stuck in to the cleaning.

We’ve filled the skip, taken out the fireplaces and ceilings, knocked the porch and the old lean-to kitchen.

Next stop the floors!
