Once upon a time we lived here.
We transformed an ugly duckling that no-one wanted, had been on the market
for a couple of years, the owners were desperate, you know the story.
There was so much room it was ridiculous and I could swap around furniture from floor to floor and you bet thats just what I did, any chance I got.
All three levels sometimes changing in a day.
Lounge became dining, TV room became bedroom, study became sewing room.
Just because we could. We always had outgrown our other homes and this was the first time the kids had ever had their very own rooms. But then we sold it, downsized and moved back to the city.
This is how we found it.
This is how we left it.
It was 3 years of hard work.
We will build next time, not renovate. For now we are renting and are happy in our little two-bedroom-plus-study cottage. We simply have outgrown it. We were almost empty nesters. Well....
the kids are moving back in!
Today I wanted to sew and update the shops but we went househunting instead.
