The new shed Greg has been building is coming along nicely. Â It will be great to store away some of our
crap stuff. Â Jairah enjoyed a little tea party at the building site. Â He had a lovely time pouring imaginary tea and milk into all of his cups complete with great sound effects. Â He is getting really good at imitating Greg hammering nails. Ladders are of special interest too! Â I must say, Jairah is really into this reno’ caper, after all, he has the morning smoko all sorted for a start!
Now for our grand plans! Â When we bought this place 18 months ago, the previous owners had done very little. Â The garden was overgrown and nothing much had been done since the house was built, circa 1980’s. Â The apricot sheer curtains were the first thing to go! Â What a difference that made. Â Thankfully the style of the house is actually quite contemporary and hasn’t dated too much, it just needs some tweaking. Â We need to paint inside and out, update the bathrooms and kitchen (currently apricot in colour), re-seal slate, change door handles, a new entry door, build a deck, retaining walls, finish the laundry we have half renovated and general garden work. We have given ourselves till spring next year to complete our list. Â We find it helps to have a timeline to work to, otherwise time slips away, yet the jobs still remain. Â I am really quite excited and I’m looking forward to sharing our renovation journey with you.
