Presenting...Our New Home

Removing some bushes that blocked  our precious sun
It has been  a couple of weeks now since we moved in. As keen as we have been to get right into tidying the place up, the weather has has other ideas - Snow, flooding, sub-zero temperatures, howling winds. So we jumped at the prospect of a sunny Saturday to put up a (massive) kitset shed - but that is a post for another day.

I managed to take a few photos of the empty house when we moved in. I thought I would compare them to how we have the place looking now and I must say it feels like HOME. Bliss.

 Thia is part of our 'U-shaped open plan Kitchen/Living'. The kitchen is to the right and the exposed brick is the back of the fireplace which is in the lounge. 

 This is the back of the fireplace close up. The wooden cabinet came as a chattel and it makes for handy storage! The bricks in the ceiling fell down in the quake and have been removed and replaced with a  modern flue, so the brick is there for decoration and awesomeness.

 Our sunny lounge! Fireplace on the right. Once we get EQC through the place we will be changing the wall colour yay! It is growing on me slightly though. 

The Multi-Coloured Hallway! Bleugh!!!
Not quite sure what was going on here but once again, hanging out for EQC to paint this monstrosity. My vintage bike and suitcases slightly make things better.

The mantlepiece/sewing corner/unorganized chaos
Loving the mirrors and the old printing frame.

So there you have a wee sneak peek into our tiny new home. The outside is a story for another day.
