Our Seventies Bungalow: Before Pictures

We’ve taken on the job of updating this sad little seventies bungalow and making it into a home.  We picked it for its location – in a quiet little close, and for me, its generous sized garden which is south facing and not shaded – completely the opposite to my old shade garden.  I have massive plans for the garden, but that’s another blog post.

So, here we have it: the before photos.  We’ve actually already moved on from here, with a lick of white paint just to neutralise the yucky paint colours.  But brace yourselves!  It is not pretty!

I can assure you that the nets were the first thing to bite the dust!

We’ve already removed the gates and posts so that we can get the car on.

The bathroom had a few disability aids which have been removed – we’re planning to remove the airing cupboard and have a walk in shower.

The main bedroom is big so we’re having fitted wardrobes and getting rid of this flowery carpet.

This is the dining room with its peculiarly placed boiler – all this is coming out to make a kitchen diner.

The kitchen is in an extension at the back of the property and is OK to live with for a few months until we get the heating and bathroom done.  It will hopefully be replaced in the summer.

Structurally, the place is OK and it’s a reasonable size, so in 12 months time we could have ourselves a nice little home.

I’ll keep you posted on the refurb!
