It’s taken us a while to do any work inside the Old House as we’ve waiting for planning permission to make some changes. However, the rooms I wanted to be decorated and finished were our bedrooms.

Modernising an Old Home to Keep it Yours.

The beauty of having an old house is that it is filled with history. Generations of your family or another have lived here before, and families will continue to live here well into the future. You can hear the creaks of the floorboards stepped on a million times before; you can smell the brick and coal that has stood and burned for hundreds of years. It is these factors that make it a home. It is cosy. It has character.
But everything needs updating at some point; our shower broke this morning! Utilities will fail, wear and tear will undoubtedly have an influence on the well-lived areas, and at some point what has laid there for years will just not cut it anymore.
