Taylor Renovation

We have almost no budget and very little to work. Not the best combination but my wife and I are getting stuck into the ‘Taylor Renovation’ so our home reflects us a bit more. It is a very fluid exercise and constantly morphing as we develop each area within the budget. This is our third renovation project and I think it’s a bit like having a baby – when you’ve had one you swear you’ll never do it yourself again, but when the sleep deprivation fades and you move back in to (what feels like) your brand new home you think ‘that wasn’t so bad, I could definitely do that again’!

 

Seriously though renovating a house yourself requires a lot of hard work and patience and certainly gives you insight as to what really goes into creating a home you want to live in.

 

Here are a few shots to give you a sneak peak:
