Kitchen decisions..

So! We have changed our minds numerous times when it comes to the kitchen and the utility..if you have seen our Instagram over the past year you will see the odd “decision made” post ha! From Wren to Howdens to diy kitchens…we couldn’t quite decide on something that was “us”. We began with copper, handlelessContinue reading “Kitchen decisions..”

Outdoor lights…

Something that we felt was a must when it came to the planning stages of the build, and the lighting design. And we have decided to go with up/down lights. The splay of light with these works so well in different spaces, and we will have them either side of the front door, as wellContinue reading “Outdoor lights…”

Spray painting…

Eeek now we have flooring upstairs we can start to visualise and put our planned layouts into practice! Yes we have been playing around with sketchup but it always helps to actually spray paint in the actual space…I was tempted to buy some inflatable furniture too ha ha! And first off, my ensuite. Definitely bathContinue reading “Spray painting…”

Week 44 – Site Progress plus more lights!

Not a whole lot going on this week, we were hopeful that the garage door would be fitted but that wasn’t to be….well not entirely anyway! The fitters set it up however the company had measured incorrectly by around 300mm and so either the whole door will need to be made again or another panelContinue reading “Week 44 – Site Progress plus more lights!”

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!”

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!”
