So in this latest instalment of my house renovation we've had some exciting updates. Firstly the rubble, bricks and concrete between the two fireplaces (in the alcove) has been removed and cleared. The fireplace at the front has had the concrete slab taken out (which it was sitting on). The electrics have been stripped back in the kitchen. The Sky satellite dish from the back of the property was taken down. Tiles from the front step (which were dangerously slippery) have been removed and the cupboard under the stairs is gone!

Plumbing Work + Updates
Well hello there! It has been a little while since I did an update on the work happening at my new house. I posted a finance video as my last instalment on my YouTube channel and blog post which you can view by clicking here. I spoke about the costs involved in the entire purchasing process including legal fees, deposit, mortgage and additional costs. In this update I'll be walking you through the next stages of work that have happened at the house. This mainly consists of plumbing work, removing the fireplace and remaining kitchen sections as well as checking the heating system and pipes.
The Work Begins
I am so excited to share this next instalment and update with you. I've been working (with the help of my lovely family and friends) on my house over the past month and my latest renovation video is now live. The first video I featured in the series was a tour of my house without any work completed and there has been quite a lot going on around all of us working full-time. We've taken any opportunity to get working here from evenings during the week to stints on weekends.
My bedroom has been decorated and the larger furniture has been moved in. I have the bed, mattress, sofa-bed and television with units. I wanted to document the full move-in process including decorating and stylising my bedroom on my blog so I'll be posting again when there is more progress made. I have popped some images below of the decorated room from different angles with captions.
