I left this post in draft for a few days, before deciding to post it anyway. It is what it is and this blog is not supposed to portray a perfectly idyllic life with the picture perfect house and frou-frou cottage garden. Even if I strive, in my dreams, for our life and all it entails to be just that, it is the process to get there that brings you more satisfaction in the end. So bear in mind, this is not the finished stage of this project. It is just one step closer to what I envisage for this house.
I wasn't expecting our new build addition to our house, to be painted any time soon. But Bert made arrangements with a local decorator to do just that.
They started on Monday and finished Tuesday afternoon.
That is our garage and garage door. It used to be the kitchen door. Not in that spot, but around the back of the house.
We like to save some pennies and reuse and
hoard save what we can.
Come spring that door will be painted white !
The colour we have chosen is a strange one. Sometimes it looks grey, other times a little brown, but mostly, what I like to call, in a posh accent, 'a muted purple'
The front door (that is the one on the right) will be painted soon in the same colour as the newly painted rendering.
By the way, have you noticed we added a solar panel on the roof of the addition? It is not a photo voltaic one for generating leccy, but for hot water, especially convenient during the summer months. And of course, some days in winter.
Among the 'several' things I disliked about the house when we bought it were the brown Upvc windows with the window pane divisions in between the double glazing. Also the brown fascia and soffit.
If all goes according to plan that will be changed come springtime. I want white window frames, fascias and soffits. It will make the house smile instead of frown. The window panes will be replaced and the frames will be painted with the appropriate products.
Now, about the tidying up around the house. "Mum !"
The question still on my mind : "should I have posted this ?"
I would appreciate your thoughts on this here project, so comments are welcomed.
Have a lovely weekend.
