So we have finally moved in and handed back the keys to our rental property. Things around here have been pretty pretty hectic, I should say crazy hectic. its been a two week journey of very mixed feelings. Ive literally had to climb my way over furniture and boxes, trying to find places to store stuff before I find it a home has not been an easy task. At one point we had only one seat to sit on and at one stage I couldn’t even get into my bedroom. Hubby still working away and only home at weekends so it hasn’t been easy at all. Ive found myself standing in the one spot just looking around the kaos wondering where oh where does one even begin.. But on a more delightful note the kaos has led us to start immediately on the renovations. Our fridge wouldn’t fit into the spot it needed to go .. So down came that wall which put a huge smile on my face.
So when we seen the difference that made we decided to take down another part of the wall so we could fit the dining room table in. I even got in on the action with taken down the wall one brick at a time, and of course I helped with the clean up too. Our good friend Steve just happened to arrive to see what we were upto and he couldn’t resist but lend a helping hand.
Well I must say that this little quick fix job has made life so much easier around here. With that wall gone I finally feel I can breath in this little nest and just makes such a difference.
When I first viewed this property I just seen the word potential scream out at me and I just had this dream of what I could turn this little gem into. So as you guys can see there is no waiting around in the O’Connor household we got to work on making our dream happen straight away 🙂
We have decided that the first room to work on will be our Laundry which should be finished by next week. We just don’t have anywhere to store all my kitchen items such as wok pressure cooker slow cooker etc etc. Our kitchen right now is just way too small , so its best to get shelves up and use it as storage at this time. Later on this little laundry room will become our walk in kitchen pantry. As for now we will just have to do with what we have and make the best of it. until all our planning approval is passed. Heres a quick look at the Laundry now. Hopefully by next week or so it will look completely different.
