THE BEGINNING - OUR RENOVATION STORY

Our new home - it's a 70's style house, almost a queenslander with the living all up on the first level and a large covered deck.  We have fallen in love with the leafy neighbourhood, the cockatoo birds that visit everyday and the peace and quiet enjoyed on our aforementioned deck!

It needs a bit of love though - something I'm very excited to get stuck into! The kitchen is dated, and the living space adjacent has a funny layout. The bathroom has a large spa bath and not much space for anything else! The garden could do with a great makeover - I'm thinking stepped terraced gardens at the front, courtyard vibes at the back.

So far we have painted the walls (no more textured feature walls) and sanded back the floors in the bedroom wing. We will do the remainder of the floors when we update the kitchen/living space.

I will be sharing our journey from design concept through construction and to completion here. I hope you find this useful in planning your own renovations.
