If you’re a regular reader you will know that we have a buy to let house. There’s been a lot of house repairs going on since we bought it but by now there are people living in it. It’s still not quite finished but it’s been repaired. So let me take you through the works…
We took out the old kitchen and put a new one in. Hubby and I tiled the walls. For amateurs we did a pretty good job!
The old suite was removed (it had seen its day!) and replaced with a new one. Nothing fancy but it does the job.
The whole room was re-tiled so it’s now a pristine white. There is a hint of grey in there with the slate look tiles I put in behind the shower. I wish I had money to put in real slate but for now it’s going to have to be slate look tiles.
Stairs and Landing
The walls replastered to repair the holes and dents. Before that I found this drawing I made of Taid on the original wall! It’s still there under the wallpaper!
The original house was a two bedroom house but when I came along in the 80s the larger room upstairs was divided in two by way of a partition wall.
This was removed to make it a large bedroom again. The skirting boards didn’t match so we replaced them with something similar to these skirting boards. We painted them white but then the tenants stripped them back and waxed them instead.
No matter how long it’ll have been since he was there, this room will always be Taid’s bedroom. At the back was an old wardrobe which has now been blocked up.
So that’s the latest happenings in the house! What do you reckon to our house repairs?
