Happy first birthday to our little Cornish home

It's hard to believe that we have been in our little Cornish home for 12 months already. It's been an amazing journey for two first time buyers and myself a first time DIY and renovator. But we have worked so hard and the downstairs of the house is so very nearly completed and we have a week off work planned in for November where we are going to attack the upstairs and make a big push to get the house done enough for a Christmas with the family.

With two new roofs, all internal walls removed downstairs, one new kitchen, a new wooden floor and half a bathroom in one year for two first time buyers I think this is a really good effort. Plus holding down two full time jobs and a busy social life we are celebrating our first year in our wonderful little home with a glass of bubbly a slice of cake and a screwdriver in hand to carry on with a few more jobs!
