The pictures make the rooms look really small but there actually very spacious. Its a new build 2 bedroom semi detached with front drive for two cars, small front garden and quite a large rear garden. We have only go round to decorating the downstairs so far and is still work in progress. Spend all day today putting the TV on the wall.




Brand New/ Living room



Starting to put up the TV unit, some other furniture in.



Wallpaper on


Second night in


Ball Chair


Started putting TV on wall as not happy where it was


TV up as well as a couple of gloss white floating shelves




Kitchen







Ghost Chairs




Garden





Thats us after just over a week, we have the week off this week so hopefully we will be able to get a bit more done. I know exactly what i want and where everything will go its just finding the time.

Thanks. It is a striking but with the rest of the walls being so plain and bare it ok to live with. For example, here are the other walls, which will eventually have a big mirror.

modern

Holy 70's decor batman!

Quite funky though. Towel hook (hoover hook) is ace.

Whats the plans for the garden? Looks a bit of an awkward shape.

PS - please say the washing machine goes further back.

No plans for the garden untill next year but eventually a bit of decking and a pond.

Washer/Dryer was left out as the hose that came with it was not long enough, sorted now.
