Well, we got the keys to our new house today! Adam took my camera with him this morning to get some photos of how it looked to start. Since then my Dad, Adam and his brother have been working all day ripping the place out. There aren’t many carpets left, the horrid polystyrene ceiling tiles have gone from most rooms, a random fire has been taken out of the kitchen (along with half of the cabinets) and the master bedroom has had this giant inbuilt wardrobe monstrosity taken out. All in all a damn good days work from the guys! I went over after work and ripped a few chunks of wallpaper off the walls in the kitchen :)
My Dad’s heading to the tip with a tonne of the stuff tomorrow, too, but hopefully the rest of the kitchen should be out and maybe even the old skirting boards off. Adam and I will be headed to ikea tomorrow to make final arrangments for our kitchen and (fingers crossed!) get a completed design and perhaps buy it :O Madness, it’s gunna be the best kitchen ever, orange walls eeee!
