As you may have read in my previous post, we were moving home. I thought I’d give you a little update on what’s happening.
Well we’re now in and have been for a week and a half.
We moved in to an almost shell. It has a bathroom and kitchen but no flooring, all the walls needed decorating and it smelt of smoke. Nice!
There is still lots to be done obviously but I think we’ve done so much in that week and a half. We have flooring downstairs and our bedroom. We’ve gone for laminate downstairs and carpet in our room.
Our bedroom has been stripped, teen daughters room has been painted (by herself), downstairs has been painted, we’ve half painted our room, front room is being stripped and will be wallpapered in the next couple of days.
Everywhere had a massive clean before we moved in and windows were left open and candles burnt which got rid of the smell a little but since we’ve started stripping wallpaper and painting, the smell has completely gone.
It was a big job when we moved in and it still is a big job but honestly, I love it. I love that we’re putting our own stamp on it and it’s exactly how we want it.
I’m waiting for some new furniture to be delivered and then I will start doing some blog posts of our rooms as they’re finished. First will be living room and our bedroom.
It’s feeling very much like home now and we’re so happy.
