Front door decided..

Another decision! We have really been going round the houses…so to speak! when it comes to the front door colour, more so than style. We are pretty clear on that! The “tenby solid” is the way to go for us as we feel it is in keeping with the style of the house We wereContinue reading “Front door decided..”

Plants…trees! No we’re not avid gardeners..

Not quite there just yet with the landscaping obviously! But definitely something to think about. The front and side of the house will need to be tackled first given that there will be a house to demolish at the back! And I don’t think we had envisioned we would have this much space at theContinue reading “Plants…trees! No we’re not avid gardeners..”

Double height hallway…Good decision!

Many moons ago…well it feels like that now…we made the decision to have a partial glass ceiling in the hallway, so that when walking into the house, the rooflight could be seen and really let the light in. Plus who doesn’t love a quirky glass ceiling! It was always going to be a compromise though,Continue reading “Double height hallway…Good decision!”

Week 26 and 27 – Site Progress!

Again they kept giving us a date and then not turning up. Obviously we know that all the trades are busy but seriously, whyContinue reading “Week 26 and 27 – Site Progress!”

Glass decided…finally!

About time! We were so undecided for awhile as you may have noticed on instagram. Simply because, originally, before we’d given it a lot of thought, we were sold on aluminium. I really liked the slim lines and athestics. And we had decided that if they weren’t crazy expensive they would be our go toContinue reading “Glass decided…finally!”

Roof decisions…

Can not believe we are almost ready for the roof! Where has this six months gone…so exciting! The tiles are being ordered this week and we have gone for the below. Definitely will look good against the anthracite grey windows and the stone heads and cills Also, how many decisions are there?! We suddenly realisedContinue reading “Roof decisions…”

Next up will be the internal block work, I am so excited for that. Need to build myself up toContinue reading “Week 22 – Site Progress!”

Kitchen plans…

Very excited to have a kitchen design on paper,and it looks fabulous! Always a bonus! Originally we were going to go with something super modern, with an industrial twist. Handleless, with Copper and Slate cupboard doors but after lots of consideration we felt that we probably would want to change it in a few years,Continue reading “Kitchen plans…”
