But more floor laid, much more to go #1930ssemirenovation #1930ssemirenovation
New windows are slowly going through the house. The big one tomorrow in the extension and then we have to wait for a couple of weeks for the bifolds as they were discoloured #1930ssemirenovation #1930shouserenovation #bathroom
It doesn’t get much better from the other angle, to be honest 😂 Full house tour coming very soon x #theturnerhouseproject #1930ssemirenovation
Welcome to our crib 😬 If you’ve made your way over from @theunmumsymum you’ll already know we have recently moved in to ‘a bit of a project.’ I have since become house renovation OBSESSED and after much deliberation I have set up this new space purely to document what will be a long-term home renovation adventure. There will be dust. There will be tears. There might be a near-divorce in the tile shop. If those things are your bag then stick around. Exciting times ahead. #betyourejelofmycarpets #1930ssemirenovation
Just need a light fitting above the light. #1930ssemirenovation #1930shouserenovation
Our plans... with the extension build fast approaching im becoming so nervous about how the extension will turn out, although I have every faith in our builder to make it look great! • The kitchen and dining/dumping room is eventually going to merge to create an open space for a kitchen/family room, this is something we have always wanted. However, we are having to keep a small structural wall in as taking it out and putting steel in would have given us a huge stuck out piece of wall where our kitchen units are going, so that was a no go... that and our budget did not stretch that far! #hullhouse #yorkshirerenovation #renovatingourhome #1930srenovation #1930ssemi #extension #buildingextension #kitchenextension #1930ssemirenovation

9 days until we’re in. I don’t go to the house in the week so looking forward to tomorrow night and seeing the progress this week. Furniture is starting to go in Saturday/Sunday too!!! I bought this light for the living room but it looks so tiny, was hoping it was taller. Might pop it in the extension, near the sofa area. Bit disappointed. I love it but just not what I expected #marksandspencers #1930ssemirenovation #almostthere .
It’s cold dark and miserable in the uk 🇬🇧 hope all is well and storm ☔️ ⛈ Ali hasn’t cause too much damage ...... bring back the sun ☀️ and the beautiful abundance of colour it brings #garden #leadedglass #1930s #artdeco #frenchwindows #housedesign #homestyling #renovation #renovationproject #renovationprogress #1930shouse #house #home #project #itllbeperfect #oneday #1930ssemi #1930ssemirenovation #1930ssemidetached
Day 3 - can this be classed as a flat lay ? Anyway most of the joists are in, will be completed tomorrow and the front velux window will be hopefully fitted. #scaffolding #building #1930s #roofing #joinery #diy #velux #joists #steels #loft #loftconversion #teesside #1930shouse #1930ssemi #1930ssemirenovation
Totally in love with this space 💕 it now feels so much bigger & brighter. It really is my perfect place to sit of an evening, especially as the dark nights are drawing in. 6 months in and I finally feel complete with these two rooms. We decided to make a formal sitting room and another sitting room/playroom hence the cupboard space. Love it x #renovationproject #renovation #houseproject #homedecor #myhome #mystyle #cosy #rustic #familyhome #foreverhome #chandelier #1930ssemirenovation #dream_interiors #housegoals #interiordesign #interiorobsessed #patiodoors #chesterfield
This week marks 6 months since we invited the builders in to our home. Here’s a bit of #instareality to mark the occasion 😂 . I should probably take this grubby dusty sheet down as it’s achieving absolutely nothing. Part of me wants to wait til it’s finished though....so I can ceremoniously rip it down to mark it’s opening! . Painting starts on Friday (a DIY job as the budget won’t stretch to decorators 😅). Then the flooring goes down and doors/skirtings etc are fitted. . . . #renovation #1930srenovatiom #1930ssemirenovation #cornerofmyhome #pocketofmyhome #myhomestyle #interiormilk #howihome #myinteriorvibe #interiorinspo #interiorblogger #extension #wraparoundextension #houserenovation #instareality
Not the best light but I've just got home to grey paint on the walls! Hopefully this will all be finished by the weekend then it's time to get a carpet! #1930ssemi #1930ssemirenovation #landing #greypaint #beforeandafter
Take seat .... have a brew and let’s call a lady called Sue ..... who’s Sue? 🤨🤔 😂...... anyway how Fit is this up-cycled telephone seat to match my Art Deco style phone 📞 😍 Nice little find for the home 🏡 and it was a steal #renovation #renovationproject #renovationprogress #1930s #1930shouse #artdeco #house #home #project #itllbeperfect #oneday #1930ssemi #1930ssemirenovation #1930ssemidetached #hello #telephone #telephoneseat #telephoneseatandtable #upcycle #upcyclefurniture #bargainshopper

So the tiles in the centre bit of the floor have been smashed away.... So we've decided to stick with restoring the parquet. The tiles will always still be there should we change our minds! #1930ssemirenovation #1930ssemi #parquetflooring #originalfeatures
When you can’t afford to replace your garage nor to #krend it neither ..... stain it instead 😍 I think it’s covered up the horrid pink pebble dash on the concrete garage pretty well .... still need another coat but think it looks mint as we say up north in Manchester #renovation #renovationproject #renovationprogress #1930s #1930shouse #artdeco #house #home #project #itllbeperfect #oneday #1930ssemi #1930ssemirenovation #1930ssemidetached #garage #garagegoals #garagerenovation #cuprinolsilvercopse
One of the first modifications I made was to stain and seal the slate hanging tiles at the front of the house and what a difference it makes 😏 pretty impressed to say the least What do you think?? @weddings2babies #renovation #renovationproject #renovationprogress #1930s #1930shouse #artdeco #house #home #project #itllbeperfect #oneday #1930ssemi #1930ssemirenovation #1930ssemidetached
Waiting on that day when I can finally put this bad boy mirror up in my home ...... “one step at a time Mr Towers”....... isn’t she a beaut @lauraashleyuk #renovation #renovationproject #renovationprogress #1930s #1930shouse #artdeco #house #home #project #itllbeperfect #oneday #1930ssemi #1930ssemirenovation #1930ssemidetached
Not the most insta-ready pic (!) but what what a torturous past couple of weeks we've had. A few days before we had the floors laid, we had a friend recommended we test the boiler pressure for leaks. . So we called the plumber round and he set it up to test. He had tested it when he originally fitted the boiler, but we'd had more workmen round and a couple new radiators fitted. Then it started dropping, we were there twice a day tracking its progress (my camera roll is full of boiler dials haha). All the while the floor fitter is fitting laminate in all but 1 room in the house... . Then the plumber would come and top it up in the week... still dropping. He even tightened a couple of leaky radiator valves we'd found, (one being in the living room, pictured) still down. At this point our carpenter started fitting door frames and doors, and needed to get onto architrave and skirting... . Eventually on Sunday he came and fitted a couple of radiators back on that we'd taken off for decorating - and ran through some leak sealer, setting the pressure to 1.5. . And voila! Seems to have fixed it!!!! It's not dropped at all in 24 hours. At least we know now it's very unlikely we have a leak under the floors, probably was to do with the valves - or maybe there was a pinhole leak somewhere. Our carpenter is starting skirting this week, wish us luck the boiler pressure stays put!! . #boiler #centralheating #renovations #homeimprovement #homerenovation #myhome #diy #londonhome #homeideas #1930ssemi #1930ssemirenovation #newhomeowners #firsttimebuyer
Day 1 - we have an amber weather warning in the North East ! It has been a busy day despite the steels not turning up. We have been assured they will be here tomorrow morning at 8am 😊🏡 #scaffolding #building #roofing #1930s #joinery #1930shouse #loftconversion #northeast #1930ssemirenovation #1930ssemi #4thbedroom #weather #family #diy #
Day 26- There’s no going back when the wall between your kitchen and living room looks like this! #sorryhouse #1930ssemirenovation #homeextension #renovation #renovationproject #housetohome
Hoping for 6days until we’re in but preparing myself for 13 #hurryup #1930ssemirenovation #1930shouserenovation
Throwing it back on a Monday morning to when I got the keys 5 months ago (well these were the estate agents pictures)..... it’s been a long process of stripping back years of neglect and we’ve got a long way to go ...... the tortoise and the hair and all that 😉 a wise woman did once tell me And we’re back on insta after a little break from social media it appears #instagram deleted our old account so we’ve had to make a new one ☝🏼.... let’s make this one bigger and better this time #renovation #renovationproject #renovationprogress #1930s #1930shouse #artdeco #house #home #project #itllbeperfect #oneday #1930ssemi #1930ssemirenovation #1930ssemidetached
Just when we thought this house had thrown out all it's surprises..... today we started to restore the parquet flooring we found under the carpet... And under the parquet flooring we find victorian tiles! In amazing condition too! The original plan was to take out a small area by the door and inset a door mat. This way we could use these pieces to replace missing broken ones 💡 Parquet or tiles??? I feel another poll coming along.... #1930ssemirenovation #parquetflooring #victoriantiles #hallway #originalfeatures
Outdoor lights are all in... not working yet, but in😃 So happy with how it’s all coming together! @motty1982 came over and sorted out our random wiring and put all the lights up and Tim @cervelo_s2_build secured all the clips for the strip lighting. I took the boys food shopping, made bacon sandwiches for the workers and stayed out of the way 👍 #makingprogresseveryday #1930ssemirenovation #sohappywemoved #1930srenovation #1930shouse #outdoorlighting
Finally getting to see some pretty things rather than dust and rubble #1930shouserenovation #1930ssemirenovation #williammorris
Slowly slowly, 2 more weeks and we’ll be in! #1930shouserenovation #1930ssemirenovation #wrenkitchens #
And we’re back on insta after a little break from social media it appears #instagram deleted our old account so we’ve had to make a new one ☝🏼.... let’s make this one bigger and better this time #renovation #renovationproject #renovationprogress #1930s #1930shouse #artdeco #house #home #project #itllbeperfect #oneday #1930ssemi #1930ssemirenovation #1930ssemidetached
So this morning I decided I wasn't liking the white cupboards so have them a fresh look with an off white and I really love them!!! The beading is on the cupboards and all paint has been touched up! I'm so impressed with them 😍 #homedecor #chimneybreast #cupboardspace #playroom #livingspace #insta #insta123 #interiordesign #interiorobsessed #homedecor #house #housegoals #rustic #cosy #1930ssemirenovation #renovationproject #familyhome #foreverhome

Carpet making decisions for the stair runner, upstairs hallway and bedrooms. I prefer the one on the right, Hubby prefers the one on the left. Asked the girls their opinion and they too chose different ones! #1930ssemirenovation #1930shouserenovation #1930shome #homestyle #flooring #flooringideas #carpet #carpetbarnbristol #decisionsdecisions
Starting the big clean ready to move on next week. #1930ssemirenovation #dustdustdust
Finally it's Friday. It's been one busy week, dark nights are drawing in. I love nothing more than cosy nights with the candles lit 💕 here's hoping we get some sunshine this weekend so we can attempt to do some gardening 👌🏻 Happy Friday ☀️ #renovationproject #renovation #myhome #dreaminterior #dream_interiors #kitchen #kitchenlove #kitchenrenovation #rustic #brass #blinds2go #toppstiles #1930ssemirenovation #familyhome #foreverhome #wrenkitchens #shakerstyle #shakerkitchen #greenery #kitchengoals #housegoals #natural #cosy #homeaccount #home #housedecor
Picked the floor and carpet for the hall stairs and landing...went against the stripes in the end as it would have looked odd at the top of the stairs! Lots of help from #WiganFlooring again! #1930ssemirenovation #1930ssemi #hallstairsandlanding #grey #carpet #laminate #nofilter
Starting painting tonight! Hopefully won't me ageslike everything else has 😂😂😂 #1930ssemirenovation #1930ssemi #1930shomerenovation #1930shome #1930shouserenovation #1930ssemidetached #1930sreno #1930shouse #kitchendecor
Our bathroom.. with a carpet 😕 The carpet is up & our new bathroom suite has been delivered! Tiles have been chosen too. This is one room I can't wait to be done 🤗 so hard washing your hair in an electric shower 😂 #soapsudsfordays • • • • • • • • #1930ssemirenovation #houserenovation #1930shouse #1930shouserenovation #1930ssemi #1930ssemidetached #houserefurb #houserefurbishment #bathroom #bathroomrenovation #foreverhome
The 3 bedrooms! Again the pics are from the estate agents so the furniture isn't ours😇 Fitted cupboards in the first two rooms are actually such good storage space (something we struggled for in the last house & we have a lot of stuff😅) Planning to change or spruce the doors up & leave the cupboards in! At least for now! • • • • • • #1930shouserenovation #houserefurbishment #houserefurb #1930shouse #houserenovation ##1930semidetached #1930ssemirenovation #1930ssemi #housetohome #foreverhome #fittedcupboards
Kitchen before photos! The door wall in the first photo (leads to the dining area, through the living room to the hall way) is currently being knocked out & some kitchen units to the right have been taken away and a big hole in the wall made for the new entrance to the kitchen!

So when we moved in we had already decided we would be changing these doors asap....but seeing as my husband smashed them on day one we had no once but to do it asap.... what a difference these make!! The room is so much brighter, love them not to mention these stunning blinds from @blinds2go x #insta #interiordesign #interiorobsessed #patio #patiodoors #blinds #cosy #myhome #mystyle #dreaminterior #naturalhessian #dulux #1930ssemirenovation #renovationproject #renovation #livingspace #houseaccount #home #homedecor #dream_interiors
The new humble abode! So hard leaving our first home which was comfortable & familiar to come to a house which needs EVERYTHING doing. But one step back is five steps forwards in this case! Onwards & upwards!
