I’m a big believer in the idea that when you have an organised home – your life feels less chaotic. Having finished rooms has definitely made a difference to our quality of life, and although we’ve still got a lot of work to do, there is light at the end of the tunnel. You suddenly remember again why you love renovating!
So downstairs we go… and demolition is first on the cards. When we bought the home, there was a secondary dwelling ‘kitchenette’ set-up – ie no oven or cooktop. This was then half stripped out by the previous tenants before we bought the house – so half the demolition on this was done! The previous tenant had also built a wall across the existing sliding doors which led to the backyard! The electrical work was also not to code, so this all had to be redone.
