Photos from the house: day one

Following the news about our recent house purchase, I promised everyone some photos, so here they are. I’ve only got internet connection at work so I’m afraid I’ve just picked a few of the ones we took on Friday, with the house exactly as we found it.

our bedroom

the basement kitchen

the living room (yes, I straightened my hair, I know it looks different)

one of the top floor rooms … before we touched anything.

So we’ve had thirty bags of rubbish out of the house so far, and the front room looks like a bomb has hit it as we’ve got all our wordly posessions in there while we sort the house out.

The gas is on a card, which is fine but you have to get a new card when you move in and its been a bank holiday so it only arrived today … have you tried cleaning a four storey house with no hot water unless you put a pan on the stove? It felt very victorian! Fingers crossed we might have hot water later on today if Kevin can get the boiler lit.

  1. Simon: About three people have offered to take the table off our hands so far … its beautiful but its really too big for the room. We’re going to try it in the other room before we make any decisions :)

  2. Hi Lorna,

    First time on your blog, where I thought I might find a sneak look at that new house. Looks brilliant! I love the stripped wood doors and windows, and the kitchen looks fab. We shall come a coo over it soon!

    I can’t believe the last owner just leaving all that stuff in it. What a ********. Still Simon’s right the dining table and chairs look great – and that bench under the window in the same shot looks lovely too, though I imagine it’s back breaking to actually sit on ;-)

    See ya!

  3. Saj: Good plan – I may well do that! I’m a bit nervous about selling the things that won’t post though, as I don’t want strange people coming round to the house to collect.

    Sophie: thanks for dropping by :) I’ll have to take more photos soon as some of the furniture has moved since that first day. I hope you will pop in, see you soon!
