We bought our house in November 2012, 3 months before our wedding! And we have decided to do as much of the DIY work ourselves as possible. Being a small holding that needed/needs lots of work makes it that much more time consuming than a regular city house. 1.9 hectare land and no mower certainly makes things interesting. I'll be sharing some pictures of it when we moved in, during the process of working on it and as it is now.
Our Enterance way and passage.
Most of the house started out with peach tiles through out and matching peach walls.The passage being the only area painted white. I now have an aversion to the colour peach!

A few months later we started the seemingly impossible task of installing laminate flooring by ourselves! Once you get into the 'groove' it gets easier. We used Aged Hickory from Builders Warehouse. It took us 2 full weekends and a few hours during the week in between.

The new flooring has made such a diffence.And best of all no peach!
