It’s starting to look more and more like a HOUSE! 😍 The roof decking should be going up on Thursday! So let the rain hold off for me! The second photo is the view from our bedroom window and the last two are from the balcony. And can I just add #NOFILTER . UGH, I just can’t wait until we call this place home! . . . . #frenchcountry #ourbuildingjourney #custombuild #builderswife #scandanaviandesign #rustic #gettingitreitz #urbannesthomes #fromthegroundup #bfsbuilt #zipsystem #huberwoods
Dining table finally arrived! 🙌🏼✨
What a view!! Our awesome neighbour did a fly over on the weekend and took some super cool shots of the new house site and new shed looking down over our dam.....and not to be forgotten, the “Tranny” of course 🌳 Plastic and mesh on the site today and then slab poured Thursday 😆 excitement overload here 🙋🏻‍♀️ And once the new house is complete the transportable aka The Tranny will be put on the back of a truck and moved to the other end of the property as a rentable investment house with seperate access...how cool is that!!! 🏡👍🏼 #builderswife #transportable #housesite #modernindustrial #builder #slabonthursday #investmentproperty #plumbing #shearingshedhouse #builderseearsy #progress
The kitchen is no longer in the hallway... it feel enormous now! The front door, hallway, stairs and landing are the next big jobs to be done HOWEVER, this will not be any time soon. 😴😴 . . . . We are going to spend the build up to Christmas and the New Year mainly relaxing! I say 'mainly' because we still have plenty of finishing touches to be getting on with in the kitchen and utility, as well as tidying the garden and all of the rubbish at the side of the house! . . . . . #1930shouse #1930ssemidetached #1930ssemi #semidetached #renovation #renovationlife #builderswife #buildershouse #buildersbuild #stainedglassdoor #stainedglasswindows #parquet #parquetfloor #hallway #myhome #myhouse #makingahome #instahomes #instarenovation #
Happy Friday Farm Friends! I am so excited to have siding on our barn the inside is almost complete as well. Hopefully I get some pictures or a video of the inside. Also my husband is building a barn door that will go just below the windows that are on the front of the barn. #siding #barn #barndoor #rockfamily #rockfamilyfarm #metalroof #weathervanes #roosters #builderswife #husbandandwife #mancave #re3builders
Our new upstairs💕 my Husband actually had to video this for me. I have a really bad fear of heights and suffer with vertigo so there was no chance of me going up a ladder to capture it🙈😂 #renovation #renovations #renovationproject #remodelingproject #remodeling #building #buildingahome #buildingproject #buildingporn #buildingblog #buildingrenovations #builderswife #builderslife #buildersofinsta #builders #buildingsite #house #home #ourhome #ourhouse #houseextension #housedesign #upstairs #friday #suburbanbliss
Bedroom ✨ It has been a while since I’ve posted a current renovation picture on my grid! Chris and his brother have been busy fitting the electrics into our master bedroom. We’re having complicated switches which operate various lights, so it’s a good job Chris’s brother is an electrician to help us out! The bedroom just needs the wires fitting to the spot lights and then boarding, which means we can finally begin plastering! I thought this would never happen! 👏🏼👏🏼 #houserenovation #bedroomdecor #bedroomgoals #bedroomdesign #bedroomrenovation #rewire #fullhouserenovation #homerenovation #renovating #homeblogger #electrician #spotlights #featurewall #bedroomfeature #busyweek #friyay #friday #progresspicture #transformation #builderswife #makingourhouseahome #masterbedroom
My amazing Hubby built a stunning jewellery rack for me 😍 no more lost or piles of mixed earrings. THESE are the perks of a Builders Wife!! . Photos don't do his workmanship justice . . Ummm about 1/16th of jewels so far 😊 he knows me so well . #luckygirl #builderswife #tradieforthelady #handmade #builder #carpenter #joiner #carpentry #joinery #woodwork #lovemyman #spoiltwife #jewellery #earrings #jewelleryaddict #fashion #style
A bit of morning “floorspiration”. It won’t be long (🤞🏼 for early next week) until we will be pouring our slab. Now, I do looovve 😍 me the look of a fully cut and #polishedconcrete floor with exposed aggregate but after much careful deliberation we decided.....or should I say....after a few domestics Matt won the concrete floor debate 😂 But to be honest after taking into consideration the costs involved we decided a full grind was just too much 🤑 so we’ve opted to go with a “burnished” concrete finish like the Pinterest pics 👆🏼 (p.s did I mention Matt hates Pinterest with a passion 😉😂 I think like most hubbys). I’ve decided I like the idea of a bit more of a natural, #industrial , rustic, and certainly much more cost effective finish!! And better still my clever Hubster can do the whole thing himself 👌🏼👌🏼 He’s done a lot and I mean A LOT of concreting in his time but this will be his first attempt at a #burnishedconcrete finish so a little nervous but super excited to see what he can do. Will def be putting photos up of the result....so keeping fingers and toes crossed that it works out ok👷🏻‍♂️ #builder #concreter #concretefloors #polishedconcrete #builderswife #whirlybird
How's your Monday evening? .. Gav and his little brother Ian spent theirs installing 26 Acros😣 These are used to support the ceiling when the blocks of the upper level are being layed. A pretty thankless job! .. On the plus side, we should have the bones of an upstairs in place by the end of the week once the weather plays ball with us⚽️🤞 #renovation #renovations #renovationproject #remodelingproject #remodeling #renovatingourhome #buildingahome #building #buildingsite #buildingproject #buildingourdreamhome #buildingsafety #buildingourforeverhome #builderswife #buildingsitesafety #currentdesignsituation #makingahouseahome #mondaymotivation #monday #suburbanbliss
Happy Saturday Farm Friends! I recently went shopping @kohls to purchased a bridal gift for a sweet friend. The bride registered for these cute Mr. & Mrs. hand towels. I know this is very trendy for newlyweds but I decided to purchase a set for our master bath. I figured we are still newlyweds after 25 yrs of marriage right? They are so cute! Also I found these cute mercury glass jars @potterybarn they ended up making perfect toothbrush holders. P.S. My master bathroom is still my favorite room in the house! Make it a great day! #kohls #potterybarn #mrandmrs #towels #mercuryglass #toothbrushholder #masterbathroom #shiplap #granitecountertops #kohlersinks #builderswife #rockfamily #rockfamilyfarm
Happy Wednesday Farm Friends! Ok so my husband is ready to build our bed and to be honest with you I am ready it’s time to get rid of the mattress frame! Of course I have been scrolling through Pinterest and IG for ideas. So far I am thinking shiplap since I don’t have any in my bedroom. I absolutely love this one...so I am reaching out to my IG family for some ideas for a bed! I am looking for some inspiration! Help? #masterbedroom #shiplap #shiplapbed #shiplapheadboard #rockfamily #husbandandwife #diy #help #builderswife #rockfamilyfarm #diyhomedecor #whitebed
Had a little trip to Matalan to grab a king size duvet cover as recommended by @keeleylemonshome before they all sell out and I'm absolutely loving it ❤️ non iron so suits me as busy, busy , busy #matalanhome #bedroom #monochrome #bungalowrenovation #builderswife
We wanted the bathroom mirror to be inset so before getting the tiler in @gav_skelly built out a stud wall from the original wall and then cut a section out so that a piece of customised mirrored glass could be inserted. .. Really pleased with the end result and the little ledge gives me extra display space which is always a plus🤗 .. We opted for large carrara marble tiles on the wall. I love the simplicity of them and feel they are pretty timeless so should age well👌 again these are from @stonemerchantirl @tilemerchant #bathroomproject #bathroomdecor #bathroomrenovation #bathroomrenovations #luxurybathrooms #luxurybathroom #marbletiles #interiors4you #interiorslover #interiorsaddict #interiorsforyou #interiors #interiordesign #instainteriors #myhome #myhouseidea #myhouseandhome #myhouse #myhousebeautiful #myhousethismonth #builderswife #buildingourforeverhome #buildingsite #howwedwell #currentdesignsituation #suburbanbliss
This is my favourite feature of the bathroom and was made by my husband @gav_skelly 💑 .. Basically I really wanted the bathrooms to have that luxury hotel feel. This bathroom was designed with the idea of the sink area being the feature but we just couldn't find a counter top sink unit in any of the showrooms or on any websites that lived up to the day dream in my head🙈 .. In the end armed with a couple of Google images and a desire to shut me up, Gav spent a few days making this and I'm so glad he did because I just love it❤ .. The legs are made from solid oak and the panels and drawers are made with moisture board. When he had finished making it we had it spray painted black. Finally we had frosted glass cut to size for the top as extra protection against water spills. .. The sink and taps are from @stonemerchantirl .. #bathroomrenovations #luxurybathroom #luxurybathrooms #myhouseidea #myhousethismonth #myhousebeautiful #myhouseandhome #myhouse #myhome #makingahouseahome #interiorsforyou #interiors4you #interiors #instainteriors #interiorslover #interiordesign #interiorsaddict #renovation #renovations #buildingproject #bathroomproject #builderswife #carpenterswife #suburbanbliss
A little glimpse of the floor in the main bathroom! .. These are Carrara marble subway tiles from @stonemerchantirl laid in a Herringbone pattern. .. This is very much on trend at the minute and we were a little afraid it would be a bit too faddy but also felt that as marble itself is timeless, overall the bathroom should age well. .. We were in Rome a couple of weeks' ago and visited the Colesseum, some of the ruins there featured this pattern and seemingly that is the first known use of it so in fairness if it was good enough for the Romans it's good enough for us! #myhome #myhouse #ourhome #ourhouse #makingahouseahome #interiors #interiorslover #interiorsaddict #interiors4you #interiorsforyou #howwedwell #howidwell #bathroomdecor #subwaytiles #herringbone #marbletiles #currentdesignsituation #homedecor #bathroomrenovation #buildingproject #builderswife #houseandhome #stonemerchantirl #suburbanbliss
Lines for days!! A bit of marking out for footings over the weekend! After 3hours of bending over spreading chalk by hand my lower back and hammys are wondering whose idea was it to have a house 30m long?? 😱 But I’m just thinking about all those amazing sliding glass doors looking out over the view. @seearsy82 But how cool it is to see on the ground....and we had some great helpers 👧🏻👦🏻 #builderswife #linesfordays #chalk #lime #rustic #thegrove #olivegrove #builderseearsy #modernindustrial #burnishedconcrete #footings #bunnings

I went shopping after work for a Birthday present and came home with a bag of randomness and no present🙈😂 .. This lovely lot was €31.80 like how could you pass it up?! .. The table is from @sostrenegrene and was €13.80 - have it earmarked for either the hall or the porch and it will more than likely house a plant🍃☘ .. The wall shelf is from @primark.home and was €7! Think the little shelves will be getting a spray of a bright colour to make it pop as the bare wood is already bothering me🙄 .. The light bulbs were €8 from @flyingtiger , no clue what to do with them just yet but I 💗 them .. The little Ilama dish is also from @flyingtiger , it was only €3 - I have a close up in the 2nd photo! I think your supposed to use it to hold rings etc but I intend on having a little gallery wall of plates in my kitchen and got it to pop in amongst them🤗 #renovation #renovations #renovationproject #buildingproject #buildingsite #builderswife #buildingourdreamhome #buildingourforeverhome #myhouse #myhome #houseandhome #makingahouseahome #house #home #currentdesignsituation #howwedwell #diydecor #interiors #iloveinteriors #flyingtiger #sostrenesgrenes #primarkhome #suburbanbliss
Lots of progress happening at the homestead today! The bungalow is getting paper on the roof and the big huge debris pile is getting ground into an oblivion by the “Cookie Monster.” See my story for the action shot! 🤣 I know this has nothing to do with my art but it’s my life right now so had to share. 😊#wickstromhomestead #bungalow #land #buildityourself #thankful #almosttothefunpart #grinder #builderswife
Our new 'skylight' (the joys of matching up floor levels between old and new😓) .. Speaking of floors our cat Lucy decided 8 o'clock of a Tuesday evening would be just fantastic timing to get stuck UNDER the floor in the kitchen😸 .. Thankfully we managed to coax her back out, had visions of the whole floor having to come up🙈 #reno #renovation #renovations #renovationproject #renovatingourhome #building #buildingsite #buildingproject #buildingourdreamhome #buildingourforeverhome #builderswife #buildersofinsta #makingahouseahome #currentdesignsituation #howwedwell #home #house #myhouse #myhome #suburbanbliss
I still can't really believe that we pushed over a 3rd of our house about 18 months ago. There is more we want to do but still unsure on what scale. I'm having a house chat on my insta stories I'd love to hear about what's happening at your house too! Can you see my oven outside! We did bring it into the new kitchen but after a month outside it died soon after. #ronoreno #renovation #somuchwork #somuchmoney #builderswife #nzhomeandgarden #nzhome #kitchen #kitchenrenovation
We are going with black windows . I ❤ how they look against the brick & granite🤗 It's a simple 4 panel design with vents. The sitting room will have a bay window. Hoping to get everything measured up this week and the order in👍🤞 #renovation #renovationproject #remodelingproject #remodeling #makingahouseahome #myhouse #myhome #house #home #homeiswheretheheartis #howihome #howwedwell #currentdesignsituation #windows #builderswife #buildingsite #buildingproject #buildingahome #foreverhome #makingahouseahome #suburbanbliss
I really wanted a front door with a 70's feel as a little retro throw back to when the house was originally built. I also wanted it to be canary yellow or pale pink but Gav picked a supplier that provided neither colour, funny that!!🤔😂 .. .. We have gone for a PVC composite door in a silver grey, and the style we have chosen is actually really popular at the minute, but if your sad like me and don't mind spending your free time researching front doors from 5 decades ago you will see that this particular style was all the rage way back then!! Door styles in vogue at the time were simplistic and tended to feature either a long rectangular glass panel or smaller square/rectangular glass panels, usually in threes. The glass was normally lightly frosted or clear. .. .. We are opting for a lightly frosted glass and are centralising the front door and including a long rectangular glass panel on either side of the door to let in as much light as possible. .. .. We are also going with black french doors for the porch. This is a bit of a controversial decision as it is very much a modern feature. When the houses were first built the porches were open in a canopy style with the garage wall on one side and a metal frame on the other to hold the roof up. Some houses in the Estate still have these and I love how they look but have also grown to love having a porch. In the winter months it's nice to have something to step into while opening the front door and it also gives me another 'room' to decorate💃❤ #reno #renovation #renovationproject #renovations #homerenovation #remodeling #remodelingproject #builderswife #buildersofinsta #buildingourforeverhome #buildingproject #buildingourdreamhome #buildingsite #house #home #myhouse #myhome #howihome #howwedwell #currentdesignsituation #makingahouseahome #frontdoor #suburbanbliss

1 of 3 pockets cut out from the gable wall. This is where the steel for the double storey extension will slot into. Gav spent a horrible few hours this weekend getting it done. Each pocket has 3 concrete lintels for additional support for the steel. #reno #renovation #renovations #renovationproject #remodeling #house #home #myhouse #myhome #buildingahome #buildingourdreamhome #dreamhome #foreverhome #builderswife #builderslife #buildingsite #itwillbeworthitintheend #buildingproject #safetyfirst #suburbanbliss
Happy Monday Farm Friends! So we are finally in our farmhouse and I am loving it! My entire home is basically a blank canvas. Why you ask? When we sold our last home the buyers bought the majority of our furniture which was a blessing (we didn’t have to move it). So with the new house I get to start fresh and pick all new furniture for every room. The first room I am starting with is my master bedroom. As you can see I have just a bed frame which I ordered off @amazon. We have used this for the last 2 years while we were living in our apartment. That being said I am still trying to find a king bed and I have had no luck. So I decided to ask the hubs to build us one. I know he is super busy but I know my husband will do a excellent job plus that means I can paint or stain it anyway I want. My creative juices are flowing! I am excited to share with you how our home comes together! Stay tune! #blankspace #empty #masterbedroom #amazon #bedframe #excited #husbandandwife #builderswife #rockfamily #rockfamilyfarm #readytodecorate #farmhouse #farmhousestyle #farmhousebedroom #kingbed #re3builders
I’ve been super preoccupied... School starting, cheer practice, and a little cold bug going around our fam. But WE POURED THE SLAB!!! Isn’t it beautiful?! 😂 It still *feels* small to me. I don’t get the feel for it until walls are up, unlike Randy. Lol. But nevertheless, I’m excited to get this ball rollin’... A little hiccup happened where we realized our storm shelter wasn’t buried deep enough, so we had to slope the garage. But ya know, I think it’s alright and it’s something we can definitely live with! We just can’t wait to make this place HOME! BONUS, here’s our cute kiddies playing in the dirt... waiting patiently to see their favorite, daddy 😍 . . . #farmhouse #oklahomaliving #newconstruction #builderswife #constructionlife #reddirt #concretepoured #gettingitreitz #rusticcoastal #foundation #fromthegroundup #ourbuildingjourney #urbannesthomes #dreamhome #reallife
The unexpected pitfalls of a renovation - this first photo is from day 1 of the build. Gav had to remove the roof from the garage so it could be demolished and what did he find underneath? another roof! Yep that's right for some bizzare reason we had a garage with 2 roofs🤔🙄 .. The second photo is from this week, a bit difficult to make out but basically when you have a block wall and a brick wall they are supposed to be connected with wall ties. So the original bricky back in 1970 odd went to the bother of inserting one, only problem was it's too short so goes from the block into thin air instead of the brown brick on the left! .. We also discovered the window wall on the original garage had no foundation, well I tell a lie it did but instead of running horizontally across it ran vertically down through the middle so it ended up being a perfect foundation supporting absolutely nothing!! .. And so the debate of new build houses versus second hand old builds wagers on😂🤣 #renovations #renovation #remodelingproject #reno #renovationproject #remodeling #builderswife #buildingourdreamhouse #building #buildingthedream #buildingourhome #buildingsite #buildersofinsta #buildingourdreamhome #myhouse #myhome #homerenovation #homeremodel #home #house #makingahouseahome #houseandhome #mygorgeousgaff #suburbanbliss
Some of the bricks and a window cill in place at the back of the house. I got a little panicked when I saw the bricks at first, just thought they looked very dark not taking into consideration the fact that it had rained and the cement still needed to dry🙈🤣 Damn Irish weather!! #renovations #renovation #remodelingproject #renovationproject #remodeling #reno #builderswife #buildingourdreamhouse #building #buildingthedream #buildingourhome #buildingsite #buildersofinsta #buildingourdreamhome #makingahouseahome #myhouse #myhome #houseandhome #house #home #mygorgeousgaff #brickbybrick #suburbanbliss
Some of the cills are here for the new window ops! Went with granite - they are a lifetime job, no need to paint so maintenance free but more importantly they look Amaaaazing❤ #renovations #renovation #remodelingproject #renovationproject #remodeling #reno #house #home #myhouse #myhome #makingahouseahome #mygorgeousgaff #builderswife #buildingourdreamhouse #building #buildingthedream #buildingourhome #buildingsite #buildersofinsta #buildingourdreamhome #granite #granitecills #suburbanbliss
The bricks are here Whoop Whoop💃 we went for the Fergustie mix😍 these are for the ground floor to the front and back of the house!

So hard to start an Introduction without sounding like an Ad on a dating website🙈 I'm Katie, I'm from Dublin and married to Gav, he's the ying to my yang, a carpenter and all round builder extraordinaire💙 .. This is our house, a typical 1970's 3 bed semi🏡 It's in an estate in an area that we both grew up in. We always wanted to buy here but couldn't afford to when we first started house hunting back in 2014. Instead of waiting and saving some more we decided to take a risk and buy a starter home with the intention of flipping it when the time was right. 2 years later the market had gone insane and we decided to take advantage, our little starter home went up for sale with the first viewing being held the day we jetted off on Honeymoon!! .. We quickly found a buyer but not another house so had to move in with my very patient Mammy until we found the perfect home! Luckily in May of 2017 we got the keys to this bad boy - a very tired, never ending fixer upper with buckets of potential🤗 .. Since then we have spent a lot of time doing all the boring jobs that are needed when you buy a house this old and tired - rewiring, replumbing, insulating and basically making it liveable! .. Last month we started a large renovation and remodeling project which involves knocking down the garage and building a double story extension in it's place with a ground floor kitchen extension been built across the back of the house. .. Over the past year or so I have spent a lot of free time on my personal Instagram glimpsing into the lovely homes of so many fab accounts and it's encouraged me to share our own little journey so here we are making our own house into a home❤ #renovation #renovations #renovationproject #makingahouseahome #remodeling #ourhouse #ourhome #buildingthedream #mygorgeousgaff #buildersofinsta #builderswife #construction #buildingsite #diydecor #reno

I love how a simple houseplant can add a pop of color and texture to a room with such simplicity. It makes me excited to start thinking about planning our next home and everything it entails. 🏡 Dont get me wrong, I dont enjoy the actual moving process, 😳😒 but the planning, picking everything out, and watching it all come together make it all worth it!🙌
We celebrated being married for a whole month {definitely a milestone?!} by painting the kitchen, dining and living area!

Follow my Aunt Dana and their journey building, designing, and decorating their new home! @gettingitreitz • • • Took a little adventure this weekend to get away one last time! We start building tomorrow and from then on it will be nonstop. I was reminded how blessed I am to have such an amazing relationship with the man who was meant for me. We survived the Texas heat and beat the crowds. We made so many memories on the trip we’ve been wanting to take for quite sometime.

After a long day I am ready to have a nice long bath! Yes I love my baths! I did ask for a soaking tub this time. All of my previous tubs were jetted and of course I never turned on the jets. So I decided on this @barclay claw foot soaking tub and I love it! I was a little worried about putting hardwood floors in our bathroom but I have to say I am glad we decided to do it a claw foot tub sitting on hardwood floors screams “FARMHOUSE” right? The tub looks fabulous and the faucet from @Barclays is just simply adorable.

✨ That glorious 5 minutes when you’re all caught up on the laundry... 🤣 Haha never happens, there’s another load in the machine of course 🤦🏼‍♀️
Post tension cables are in ✅Next step, engineer inspection and then city inspection. Then onto POURING THE FOUNDATION. Everything is looking great! Now, let’s cross our fingers that this weird August weather will hold out and let us get this foundation poured. Post tension foundations is something that Urban Nest Homes does as a standard on every build. It is a technique used to create a much stronger and lasting foundation compared to other slab techniques still used. I love learning all the details of building a home and SO lucky I’m going to be a #builderswife before long! 🤞🏼🌦☀️ . . . #foundation #posttension #oklahoma #constructionlife #ourbuildingjourney #fromthegroundup #customhome #dreamhome #farmhouse #rusticcoastal #urbannesthomes #buildinglife #rainraingoaway #innovativeconstructionservices
Kitchen fitting ✨ The current state of our new tiles makes me cringe 🤦🏻‍♀️ We are fitting the last few bits of the kitchen today! We are also debating whether to take down another bit of wall upstairs to open up the hallway and have a banister and more light can come into the new hallway from the existing stairs window. #homerenovation #homedecor #flatlay #renovatingideas #instahome #interiordesign #kitchendesign #kitchenremodel #navykitchen #copperaccessories #navykitchencabinets #homelife #renovatingourhome #doityourself #powertools #builderswife #sundayfunday #nowimtired #takeawayagain #grindertool #powerdrill
Sunday is happy laundry day in this pretty space. #regram from @rockfamilyfarm #mygekitchen "The rain has stopped finally! I am done for the day so the hubs and I are already laying in the bed. Yes it’s still daylight outside but I am exhausted! I am so over the moon with my laundry room. I wanted my laundry room functional but pretty. The cabinets ended up a perfect shade of robins egg blue. I also decided to stack my washer & dryer to save on space. I have to say I absolutely adore my flower knobs on my cabinets and of course I have to give mad props to @hobbylobby they have the best knob selection ever! #hobbylobby #laundryroom #caninets #robinseggblue #knobs #rustyknobs #geappliances #quartzcountertops #kohler #kingstonbrass #rockfamily #rockfamilyfarm #re3builders #wash #dry #farmlife #builderswife #husbandandwife #shiplapfever #mylovefordiy "

Drawing of the Day #18 is a throwback to a sketch I did way back in 2010. If you look closely you can see some notes I scribbled down for changes I wanted to make when I drew the final. And happy side note...today is TRUSS DAY on the homestead! I love that we get to live here while we build because I love being able to watch cool things like trusses flying through the air! 😜#sketchbook #sketch #homestead #builderswife #artistoninstagram #artistsoninstagram #artistsofinstagram #pencildrawing #doityourself #homebuilder #wickstromconstruction #weregettingthere
Upstairs Floor Plan 🏚 👷🏻‍♂️ Chris has been busy today, boarding the ceilings in the bedrooms and making bedroom number 3! If you’ve followed us for a while, you’ll know our original floor plan, had the bathroom downstairs (now our kitchen diner) so we placed it into the small bedroom upstairs, which had previously been a bathroom! Complicated! 🤦🏻‍♀️ So now we’re making a third bedroom again as we had a huge front bedroom with a massive cupboard! The wall is taking shape and upstairs finally looks to have made huge progress! We only started upstairs 2 weeks ago 👏🏼👏🏼 #builderswife #builderboyfriend #homerenovation #renovatingourhome #renovation #renovationproject #renovationlife #inadayswork #homebloggers #homebloggersuk #homeinterior #thirdbedroom #studwall #buildingabedroom #bedroomrenovation #floorplans #upstairsrenovation #buildingwork #makingourhouseahome #renovatingourhome #renovatingourhouse
