Sorry I have been slacking off in the blog-posting department. I have been very busy packing up some of my home prior to home improvements.
We have just recently commenced the renovation; a new kitchen / dining area, and freshening up the family room and outside deck area will be (hopefully) completed over a 2-3 month time frame.
I can't believe I packed 71 boxes from this (relatively) small area! 62 went to storage along with furniture etc.
We are using the laundry as a make-shift kitchen. The new outdoor (bar-b-que) fridge is in the laundry and we are using that for the moment. The electric frypan is our main cooking appliance as well as the microwave oven and a toaster. So, all in all, it works pretty efficiently.
Old kitchen - now 23 years' old. The wall on the left has now gone - making way for an updated open plan kitchen and dining area.
The empty family space. Carpet will be replaced with beautiful floorboards. New curtains/shutters will be installed and a new paint job will be carried out, too!
The wall is down! Most of the kitchen has gone. Windows will become doors opening to the outside deck which will be extended a little.
New kitchen will be placed in this area, previously the dining area.
Still so much to do....it has only just begun!
I will keep you posted and try and not bore you to death with TOO many house photos!
Bead making has come to a standstill...although I did spend some time during the recent cold and rainy weekend tidying and labelling glass rods.....feeling quite virtuous really!!
Until next time,
