The Ugly Truth

Well here it is folks.

The pic's of the old scungy cupboards in the kitchen and bedroom and then the filth behind them. Guess who got the job of cleaning it up. Lucky me!

Look away now if you are at all squeamish.





Ahhhhh! Disgusting!!!!



Andy's brother lent a much needed hand in the demolition.


I'm smiling now, then I see yet more filth to clean up.


Now you see it.

Now you don't.


Hopefully that's the worst of it over.


We had an engineer over yesterday and he suggested, fix any water/sewerage leaking issues under the house before we consider underpinning in the future.

So now it's up to the plumbers, electricians, and plasterers, to make it a bit more comfortable and safe before we move in.

This w'ends projects are to fix spouting, fit new doors into shed and my job will be scraping off the rest of the wallpaper. Thank goodness it is only in one bedroom and the hall.

I can't wait to paint and rip out the carpet but first things first.
