House renovation: before and during photos

January 13, 2011

It’s been a while. There was all that snow, and then that Christmas business. And things at the house ground to a halt during all of that.

But now the builders have got the kettle back on, picked up The Sun and opened their lunchboxes…OK, that’s very unfair. These builders are the nicest, most efficient bunch you could want to meet. Really. And they’re cracking on.

The back of the house was looking like this:

Then just before Christmas it looked like this:

And here it is just yesterday:

Here was the view of the kitchen in December:

And here’s the kitchen as of yesterday:

Heading on upstairs, here’s where we’re at now:

And here’s the staircase waiting to go up and be installed in the top floor. Finally we’ll be able to see what the bedroom at the top looks like.

More soon…

    Hello – Just found your blog and your photos are great! My problem is that the folks who owned our house before us spoiled the way the stair landing at the top looks in order to make room for a proper bathroom. We’re about to have the bathroom renovated so we have a chance to make it better. Have you found anywhere where else with good photos in your travels on the web? I think maybe U.K. sites would be more useful than North American ones, as many houses are old by our standards.
    Cheers, S
