Reno Diaries: We have a house!

Still pinching myself in disbelief, this will be a little short post. We picked up the keys to our very first ‘own’ home 4 days ago. We’ve been saving for ages but didn’t think we’d be ready to start looking until spring this year.

Someone out there had other ideas though and we were able to put in a cheeky offer on a house just before Christmas which was accepted. The previous owners had already moved out so were keen for a very quick sale and as we were renting, ideal buyers in a chain free position.

There’s so much that needs doing but it’s liveable for now and we’ll just have to learn how to become DIY experts because we certainly can’t afford everything we want to change but even with the mould on the walls (!!), the locks on the outside of internal doors (!!) I am totally in love. Oh, and for now, we have a sauna in a garage/outbuilding at the bottom of the garden…
