So it began 2 years ago...
Getting sick of watching other peoples houses so close by, I started to look around for a free standing house!
I'm a sucker for English cottages, but I live in The Netherlands...
When I came across this little farm house, I immediately fell in love.
And so did my boyfriend. =)
Alright! Do come in... ;)
WHAT??? Well, I didn't like the floor, I didn't like the walls, so the only thing you can do is strip the place...
And that is exactly what we did..
We stripped some more..
Then all of a sudden I found a small potato cellar:
With the tiles still in it!
The stuff on the table is what I found in the clay...really old stuff, tiles from 1670...
Now the house was build around 1900 so this came from the house that stood before this one..
I had to close everything up and pour concrete over it... =O
Then a builder put in these oak thingies, and I just love it... <3
I made the little blocks underneath them:
And the floor man got started on the oak floor:
Whehehe, we had to cover it, because "the boss" wanted to see television from his own couch! =D
I had to have some form of closet for the kitchen...
Because I had removed all the closets in order to get the oak beams.
Excuse the Christmas decorations.. ;)
Now, we waited and waited for the guys to do the walls...
They never showed, got me so pissed, did it myself:
The ceiling was dark brown...Ugh...
Boyfriend made it nice and white:
And I closed the big openings from ceiling to oak beam.
Now over to the window seats! <3
I had to do it twice! Because it was not to my taste...
But it came out good... <3
With the help of my little friend:
At this moment I'm working on two things, the fire place and our bedroom.
The fireplace is turning out great, the bedroom, I need some help with that...
I just can't see it anymore..
Trying to figure out how and when... =)
And I'm up to this point...
There still has to be a huge oak beam, that is waiting outside to get on it and I have to finish it.
Oh, meet our new neigbours:
In front of the house:
In the back:
That's all for now.
Next time I will show you the bedroom of my little boy!
(if you want me to)
Greetings from a crazy girl, who loves to remodel her house...
And last but sure not least, nails and building don't really mix...hahahaa!
Thank god for acrylic and tips!
