Thanks for all the kind and positive comments, it is much appreciated. Makes a change from both parents and parents in law, who are all keen to know when we are getting the carpets in...
I must admit I've been luxuriating in unaccustomed home comforts a bit recently, and the house has always been too knee deep in scooters and In the Night Garden soft toys to take any photos. Also the architect said she was going to organise some professional photos so I thought I'd wait for those and be all swanky. However I have a few not very good ones taken on my mobile phone so they will have to do for now!
Outside - a specialist company arrives this week ( fingers crossed) to recreate the original black and white tiled path.
the 'family' sitting room. We miscalculated on bookshelves so we'll be saving up for a few more once we've recovered from the financial ruin we've already inflicted on ourselves...
the dining room through the new knocked-through opening. The dresser is original to the house and I had to defend it from the builders and from my husband, who all thought it should reside in the skip.
the sitting room fireplace - it still works! Despite spending most of the last six months hanging four feet above ground level while the builders excavated round it and used it as a giant ash tray
from the dining room into the kitchen - (that poor old ikea bookshelf has spent most of the last 8 months in the garden but has cleaned up fairly well considering!)
