Before and after ...

At last I’m posting a couple of before and after shot of our renovations. I think I just became to fed up with the entire process to appreciate the end results. It’s only now that I look back at the pics that I really see what a big improvement it all is.

The garage and driveway:

The front:

The back:

The flat:

Look what we did with this old water tower. I love my “weather owl”! It still needs a new door and some racks – eventually it will serve as a little garden shed. The inside of the old part of the house is a bit of a mess at the moment as we are busy repainting it all, renovating the old bathrooms and replacing all the light fittings.

The end is in sight! :o)

Oh wow Michelle, now one can see to what extent your life has been disrupted ... but well worth all of it. I just love the stoep all around most of the house, it gives a house such a social aspect to it. And that new HUGE garage, lots of storage space for crafty supplies .... Enjoy your new beautiful home. Hugs from Desire
