Renovating.....

We have recently been renovating our house...I would say that after a few months of various trades people in and out I am really over it. But out of all the trades people we have had into the house the hardest one to get hold of is a plumber...Why are they so darn elusive? Anyone else had the same problem?

At the end of the year near Xmas, it's hard to get trades-person as everybody wants things done .. yesterday ....... crazy

Great time to do it now as you get all the spare time off work over xmas as opposed to using up the weekends.

Not for me no DIY skills here!

DIY is off my bucket list

DIY is a new concept that I am about to explore over the next few months on a massive level as now we have brought our first home - we are lucky that the house is only 5years old so nothing needs doing to live in it at all but there is still plenty we would love to do to make it our own! :)

We dream of the things we could do around the house, oh to win lotto!!!

Good fun though! On our list for this summer is to get our deck strated and our house cleaned and painted. Then next year its the bathroom!

renovating can be a stressful time. taking time to plan makes sense, but in my experience their is always some glitch along the way. kitchens and bathrooms are always expensive. so make sure you have deep pockets. but after it is all complete you can sit back and admire your new creation. and start to think about the next thing on the list.
