Work stops to celebrate Christmas

When we bought our house in October 2012 we thought it would be a brilliant idea to invite my family down from Essex to spend Christmas 2013 with us. As the months of renovation went by the house was getting more and more like a home and ready for my family but it was hard work. We were grouting the bathroom the night before they arrived and working right until they knocked on the door. But once they arrived they downstairs was looking good but the upstairs still needed work but this had to be ignored and we were to ignore the plasterboard bedroom walls and lack of carpet and hope that some nice curtains and bedding would make it comfortable for my family until we were 100% finished on the house.

For our first Christmas in our new home and the first Christmas in Cornwall for my family the whole festive period was a success and we will definitely host Christmas again when the house is completely finished.
