#HIT-Home Improvement Thursday

#HIT-Home Improvement Thursday

Welcome to #HIT or Home Improvement Thursdays! You are joining The Plumbette and I on our very first one.
Anyone can join in, no matter the niche of your blog, just as long as your linked post follows the few simple rules.

But before we get into the linking I wanted to share a little of my home so far. We’ve been in our home for nearly 12 months, and while we are still very much a work in progress, we have come a long way from the day we were presented with our keys.

This is our home as it was the day we took-over.

A little snap shot of the front of our home, taken about 6 months ago.


Our lounge as it is today.

We have a second stage to our extension to begin sometime in the next 12 months, painting to be finished and two bathrooms to reno, so a great deal of work to share. I’m fortunate that my husband is a builder, and we would love to share the things we learn along the way.

Please stick around and either join us in our very first link up, or grab a coffee and show some love to those who have taken the time to share their posts with you.

Most of all, enjoy!
