It’s slowly becoming a home!!!

Last weekend Mum and Dad hired a van loaded up the bed frame Dad made from the old barn beams, a chair mum had recovered and some other bits and headed down to Wales!!!! We then loaded an absolute heap of furnishings at our current home, before heading on down to West Wales!!! The weekend was spent sorting, building unpacking loading cleaning and generally starting to build a home!!!

Saturday morning was a very frosty start!!

But Dad and James worked hard Friday night and got our new bed built!!! Dad has performed an amazing feat planing sanding polishing etc and making a wonderful bed frame from the old roofing beams from the barn!

Cheeky chops for scale!!!

We have clothes storage!!!


William enjoyed playing on the carpet and started off on the blue cushion!!!

Grandma and I got his mural done!!!! I love it but I’m fairly sure that I’ll find the wall stickers on the floor when we are next there so I’m going armed with extra sticky stuff!!

The chair mum rescued and had reupholstered!!!! It’s amazing the transformation and soooo comfy!! 

Williams room is taking shape with the sofa bed now a sofa again and a desk and drawers in there


Paint splats on the tiles were carefully removed before furniture put in the kitchen!!!! Te he!!!! Bottoms up!!!

We officially have a spare room!!! One chair bed and a double with some old tables as temporary sidetables!!


We are so fancy now even our bathrooms have doors!!!!

And our kitchen is finally becoming a kitchen!!!


With a kitchen door and all!! Still lots to do and clear up but…. It’s starting to resemble a home. We have come such a long way from the shell we started with!!!
