These photos are a bit old now, they are from just before Christmas, but I haven't really taken any photos of the house since then and this was a major milestone moment - big changes! From dusty paint splattered floors to lovely soft clean carpet, and useable rooms!
The kids drew some pictures and wrote messages on their floors in the morning before the carpet man arrived. Liam wanted to leave some money under the carpet.
The carpet man made the mistake of engaging with the children so they followed him around the whole time talking his head off - he didn't seem to mind, and taught them a few tricks of the trade.
And then a few hours later.....
Our building site had been transformed into a home!
It didn't take the kids long to start moving things up into their bedrooms.
And the downstairs room which is going to be a relaxing/library room began to fulfil it's purpose immediately.
We are slowly bit by bit filling the rooms with furniture and curtains etc, I will make sure I post some updated photos soon.
