So today is kind of the official start date of a really important part of my life, my boyfriend and I just got the keys to my first house and officially became homeowners!
The house was built in 1971 and has had the same elderly owner(s) since then, and has literally had no work done to it save for the windows which have been replaced. We’ve got fairly big plans for it and I wanted to document the progress.
First steps start tomorrow: the skip is hired and arriving in the morning; the plasterer is coming to give a quote; we’ve called in the troops to start stripping the carpets, bathroom fixtures, and kitchen units and we’ll begin chasing out the walls for pipes and alarm wires.
Below are the before images as a frame of reference for just what we’re dealing with:
