The in­te­rior walls that di­vided the house in two were de­mol­ished. A bath­room was added and new win­dows in­stalled: two large win­dows in the bed­room and one large and two small win­dows in the bath­room.

The plumb­ing and elec­tri­cal wiring was re­done. A gas geyser was in­stalled that to­gether with the ex­ist­ing so­lar geyser pro­vides more than enough hot wa­ter.

The kitchen got a new scullery, coun­ter­tops and shelv­ing. A ceil­ing was in­stalled and the house was re­painted in­side and out. The al­cove hous­ing the fire­place was con­verted into stor­age space for the kitchen and a free­stand­ing fire­place was in­stalled.

Brown pa­per was glued to the floors which were then sealed with yacht var­nish – an in­ex­pen­sive so­lu­tion for an un­sightly ce­ment floor. A stoep was added on – but this project is still a work in progress.
