We started this blog at the time we bought our second home Auchenard. When we bought our first property in mid 2012 it was also in need of major renovations. That project is where we caught the renovation bug. Why pay over the odds for someone else’s bathroom/kitchen/flooring choices when you can make your own?
Here is a brief before and after tour. The before pictures came from the estate agent’s photos i.e. we bought it knowing it needed some work. However the full property survey we had carried out let us know that the property was in good structural condition and any changes required were mostly cosmetic.

The original bathroom only had space for a bath. We knocked down the internal wall and extended it into the third bedroom to make way for an extra large shower and moved the sink to the left side of the bathroom. We went from here:
