The Cottage – The Kitchen

When choosing a kitchen for the cottage, we already had a style in mind. It needed to warm, welcoming and comfortable. We wanted something timeless, easy to keep and units that would suit the cottage.ย We went for a classic shaker … Continue reading

The Cottage – We’ve moved in!

We’re in! ๐Ÿ™‚ It took us a year and half, numerous ‘discussions’, most of our moola and probably our sanity. But it was worth it! We’re by no means finished. I know everyone says “you’ll never be finished”. But we’re … Continue reading

The Cottage – What A Difference A Year Makes

What a difference a year makes,8760 little hours. I can’t believe we’ve been working on the cottage a year today! A lot has happened since. A lot has happened even since the last update. Bare with me, this could be … Continue reading

The Cottage – It’ll Be All White On The Night!

Oh how I love a cheesy pun! Especially when I’m feeling this smug ๐Ÿ˜‰ The walls have been plastered and primed. The walls beforehand were pretty rough to say the least. Afterย the plasterers worked their magic, we had to leave … Continue reading

The Cottage – Ready To Get Plastered! The Walls, Not Me ;)

I know it’s only small steps but once the roof is on we can start installing the windows and doors. Then we can get to work on the interior, with plaster boards, electrics and plumbing. Then onto the good stuff ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s safe to say I don’t have a head for heights. I feel nauseous descending a stairs! So I was pretty proud of myself for climbing the scaffolding to get these snaps. The dismount was slightly less graceful ๐Ÿ˜•

We may have been waiting a while for the work to start but I think that’s some serious progress in two days!

Hopefully I’ll be updating you with more progress really soon ๐Ÿ™‚
