Renovation Tips – 10 things you need to know

If you’re anything like me, you’ll enjoy watching all of those home and design programmes on TV, you’ll enjoy shows like Grand Designs and The Restoration Man and comment along as you watch other mad people renovating and building the homes of their dreams, saying things like “I wouldn’t do it like that” and “that’s a waste of money”.

Introducing the House Project – A House Renovation

We are about to embark on something that is probably one of the most exciting things we’ve done as a couple (other than getting married and starting a family, that is)…The House Project.

Introducing The House Project – by HollyGoesLightly from Holly Wood on Vimeo.

We adore our home, but we are quickly out-growing it and if I’m being honest, I’ve started to fall out of love with it. I don’t know if it’s because of being on maternity leave and spending so much time within the house, but it just doesn’t suit our lifestyle anymore. Continue reading
