Hello,

I bought a house a few weeks ago and i have been talking pics as i go along so i thought i would put a thread up.

(Click on the images for bigger versions)

2007-04-14

After going to look at a house on Monday i put in an offer and it has been accepted, so i have now been and reserved the house. I now have to sort out the morguage, really really excited now!

2007-05-31

Today i went to collect the keys to MY House! Yes thats right i own a house. I have been saving very hard for the last year and it has all paid off. I have brought a 2 bedroom detatched coach house, it has a garden and a garage. I am going to do a few things to it before i move it, but i am sooo happy.



2007-06-05

Dad and I went and worked on the house last nite, we got the new downlighters fitted and wired up, they make the rooms look soo much better. There were 20 of them to fit in total. We fitted the curtain poles and also started the plumming and stud work in the downstairs toilet.



2007-06-07

Finally the grass has been fitted in my house, it looks good and makes the back garden look alot bigger, it needs to be watered alot so i need to sort that out very soon.



2007-06-08

I have got the 1st lot of components so that i can have Media Center running in all the rooms in the house. I have got 5 lots of 20m RCA cables for sound, a RCA 4way booster box, a Digital Tv card, Windows Vista with Media Center and a new graphics card. There should be more arriving soon.



2007-06-12

Today i recieved the 2nd lot of components for the multi room media center. I have got 4 lots of 20m VGA cables and 1 10m VGA Cable. I also have a 4 way VGA booster.



2007-06-13

Tonight Dad and I started to run the VGA and RCA cables to the TVs. We ran them all up into the loft where the booster boxes are going to be kept. We also fitted the toilet downstairs.



2007-06-16

Today Mark, My Dad and I worked on getting the back door cut out and plaster boarding the garage. The door was cut out and looks really good, we have the whole garage plasterboarded aswell as the cupboard and the toilet. I got the some more of the cables in and tidied them up in the loft.



2007-06-22

My new Samsung R88 Tvs turned up today. I got them at a great price after searching on the internet. I also have the two wall mount brackets for them. I have a 40inch one for the lounge and a 26inch one for my bedroom. I also cleaned out the garage.



2007-06-23

My Uncle came round to plaster my garage and downstaires toilet for me today. My dad got me a new washine machine so we fitted that aswell. We filled all the holes we had made in the walls for the cables.



2007-06-24

Dad and I went and painted my garage and toilet. We painted the walls magnolia and the ceiling white. We sanded and painted the holes we had filled yesterday aswell. We also fitted the LCDs to the wall in the lounge and the bedroom.



2007-06-28

I ordered my new floor tiles on Monday and they arrived today. My uncle picked them up in his van and took them to my house. They are thick slate tiles. I ordered 330 of them.



I will keep this thread updated, i am working on the house most nights.

Ashley

where did you source your slate tiles - I've found some but alternatives are always useful. I got my keys 2 weeks ago as of tomorrow and I've nearly finished the gutting stage; plumber, electrician and plasterer should all be starting in the next couple of weeks; then the building work starts!

I own the building and the garage next to the front door. The other 2 are on a 100 year lease to the 2 houses next door.

The house was 130,000 and in total to furnish and kit out i will have spent 6000.

There is a steal "L" shaped lintel above the garage door on both skins.

I am a software developer, lol. But the rest of my family are in the building trade so that helps.

Last night Dad, Mark and I layed the slate tiles in the Bathroom, Kitchen and Garage. The Garage looks really good, we were a bit worried as they were all different thickness, but once they were spread over a wide area it just looked right.

This weekend Dad, Mark and I sealed the slate floors, fitted the underlay and hung the mirror in the bathroom.



2007-07-02

Last nite Dad, Grandma, Mark and I went to get the house ready for the carpets getting fitted. We cleaned the whole of the upstairs aswell as putting the skirting board in the garage. We fitted a new light, new sink and a TV in the garage. We also tested the TV in the bathroom

Ahhh so it's additions to the house rather than you finishing it off which is what I thought you were doing!
