It's been a hellish week, very busy and very exhausting. Today, I was up at 4.45am in order to catch the shuttle to Glasgow. I got home at 7pm. Anyway, enough of me moaning. Here is what you really want - photos of the house!
Here are some before photos of the lounge taken when it was being used as a temporary resting place for stuff on the way to the storage locker. This is the view towards the front window. Note the cork tiles on the chimney breast and the suspended ceiling with the huge (useless) spot-lights.
And the view towards the kitchen:
The piano was the last piece of furniture to be moved. It's being stored by specialist piano movers.
On the left, you can just see the platform that was built over the floor where the original kitchen was until the '70's. And one of the brick feature walls. (Yes, that is the current kitchen through those doors.) Did I mention that we think the old owners used that space as a bar area? Seems logical when you look at it.
The only thing that is missing is the 1970's padded bar. This is what was behind all those bricks:
We've also kissed good-bye to the cork tiles on the chimney:
The last big change is to the lounge room door. On the left, is the doorway we're filling in. It dates from the '70's. On the right, is the original doorway, which we've opened up again. The plan is to put the sofa in front of this wall but we're now worried it'll be too long.
