There’s been a bit more work done since my last renovations post back in September.
The backyard was finished – topsoil and plants in the garden beds.
Adam and David built the shed, the garden beds were mulched and the lawn was laid
Clara approved of the new lawn
We bought some outdoor furniture
And moved the rabbits down from the back deck
Work began on the downstairs rebuilding with a doorway being cut between our bedroom and the old study.
Before the wall
Achievement unlocked: bedroom privacy!
We’d been working to a deadline to get the sofabed moved downstairs into what is now Tom and my study and the gym.
We needed to move the sofa bed because our new lounges were coming.
This brings us to the end of November, at which point I decreed that building stuff could now wait till after Christmas.
Christmas happened, apparently it’s mostly about food.
And then we were back to pulling bits of the house apart. The wall between our bedroom and Adam’s study now has double sliding doors installed in it, they’ll mostly stay open but can be closed over if Adam needs to work late or one of us needs to get up early and doesn’t want to disturb the other too much.
And, bringing us up to today’s activities, the wall for our walk-in wardrobe is also under construction.
It feels like we’re getting there, the house is certainly a lot more pleasant to live in now than it has been for many years, but there’ll be more updates to come over the next few months at least.
