All four maple chairs now safely delivered and the walnut one on its way to its rightful home. I am so pleased with them - they make the dining room feel lighter and bigger somehow. The kids love them too. So - Swiveluk, and James in particular, heartily recommended - will put their link on to this page when I remember how to do it! (Maraka - I am so impressed that you have a dining table big enough for eight of them! Also have my eye on the rocking chair...I like the furry sheepskin thingy you can get for it too.)
Now, on to the next thing ( rubs hands with glee!) Shelves for the small sitting room are being started tomorrow. Am going to post a few before pictures as I've been a bit evasive about that room - the main reason being that there's nothing much in it at the moment apart from a heap of books we haven't got shelves for!
Definitely more comfortable than when it was a garage
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...
