Where did you get your ideas? Home and Pin­ter­est. Any other hints or tips? Al­ways keep a stash of emer­gency plumb­ing parts in case you work af­ter hours and things go wrong. We tried to de­ter­mine where the plumb­ing lay by look­ing at where the plas­ter­work was un­even – but it didn’t work. The first hole we drilled per­fectly, but we for­got that there was both a hot and cold wa­ter line and hit the wa­ter! The plumber was ex­pen­sive... What do you en­joy most about the com­pleted project? We spend most of our time in the kitchen and love that it’s cosy, easy to live in and prac­ti­cal. We also ap­pre­ci­ate it more be­cause we know all the work that has gone into it – it gives us courage to tackle more projects.

What’s next? We’d like to build a flat next to our house for ex­tra in­come.

A striped wall, an in­ex­pen­sive DIY project, cre­ates an in­ter­est­ing fo­cal fea­ture. Dé­cor ac­ces­sories from Beach Sand; hang­ing plants from Wool­worths and Green­study

The stair­case (left) to the liv­ing room lo­cated op­po­site the kitchen also un­der­went a mini makeover with a beau­ti­ful new wood and tile fin­ish.

Prop­pie the res­cue dog loves to help!
