30.6 My Home Renovation Update: Details - Starting to Become a Home by Ilsa Melchiori

img_9551.jpg

When this renovation started I thought it would be, if not easy at least fine, to stay living in the building throughout. However after over a year of living in two small rooms and a shanty kitchen/bathroom hybrid (yes our toilet and stove were in the same space) I'm over the freaking moon to finally have a bit more usable (traditional) space! As per my previous posts, here, here and here, below I share a range of photos showing the progress of the build. Enjoy!

If you want to see some hard truths about the building process I also did a post called What It's Really Like Living on a Construction Sitethat shows the less exciting site of things.

11.12 What have I been doing...? by Ilsa Melchiori

Mainly?

Failing to blog... sorry internet people. I really am off to another great start.

But let me explain what has been taking up all my time.
  1. End of year assessments for University. I'm currently 2 years into a 4 year interior design degree. This is my second degree.
  2. House renovations. I've had to commit any extra time to working on the house renovation. We now have windows! House update post coming soon.
  3. Work. Unfortunately I've still got to make those $$$ in order to live.

So I do apologise and I hope you will all forgive me. I will be aiming to post every Tuesday from now on.

What has been consuming your time recently?

15.9 My Home Renovations Update: Demolition, Second Floor & more by Ilsa Melchiori

I moved into my house back in 2012. I loved my little terrace house, however, over time it started to crumble and was in desperate need of some structural and cosmetic attention. So with quite a few delays involving Council planning, 2016 finally became the year we could start works!

Quick disclaimer: I do not own this property, my family does. My boyfriend and I rent it off my parents.

So this is where we are right now. As I am writing this post, I can hear workmen out back banging away, I believe they are putting on the roof! I've never been more excited about a roof.

Have you ever undergone major home renovations? I'd love to hear about your experience.
