The houses in our road all have titchy gardens ( a massive 36 feet by 20 so I'm told..) but ours looks even titchier than most now it is bald. I don't think dustbowl chic is going to catch on. We have just come back from lunch at Petersham Nurseries*, which is sort of how I want our garden to be, although in miniature, naturally.
*broke the eating out embargo!
A bit tricky to negotiate with the kids' bikes. We are hoping the tile men come back soon...
I'm 39 and married with two children aged seven and four. I'm fatally attracted to house renovation projects, and this is our third in the last seven years, my personal fifth since I bought my first flat in 1996. I think we might have bitten off more than we can chew with the Worst House.
Our architect recently commissioned photographer Joel Knight to take some photos of the Worst House in its finished state. Have a look on his website at joelknightphotography (The Worst House is in a couple of pictures on his Architectural page under 'extensions'.)
You can also see some very scary photos of the Worst House under construction on our architect's site -architecture wk. (The Worst House is under selected projects/residential/Morley Road.)
And photographer Carl Pendle took some pictures of the Worst House in January for Real Homes Magazine - watch this space...
