It’s not all 🦋 ‘s and 🌹 es over here, although there are plenty of those around. 💕The past owners have left us with a mess (literally), no hot water (actually, no water in the main house currently, still using a local laundromat to get those clothes and bedding cleaned), and the buildings in disarray. There are layers of dirt and dust that I wish could talk and tell us what they know. At first it was a bit discouraging but it’s not our first shindig (as you know if you’ve known us for any length of time). 🤗We are so excited about embracing Houstondale and all that it has to offer‼️ I think we are going to give the renovations and story it’s own FB page, Instagram, and website so you can follow along if you’d like to. Comment below if you’d like to be invited. 😃We’ll share the history of the home, behind the scene footage of the interior decorating, renovation pics, and so much more.
The outcome is going to be amazing🙌🏼, although my videography skills are not. 😂 We have met so many nice people in town, and are surrounded by good neighbors. This place is going to come ALIVE! We want to share it with y’all and let you enjoy it as much as we do.
Let the journey begin‼️🐎

Day 238: CURRENT STATUS...this is the current view of the house from the back garden complete with mess 😫😂🙈 I know I sound like a broken record but I am obsessed with how the sun sets on the coach house. We’re so lucky to have a south facing garden. I’ve been looking at garden furniture this weekend 😂😂 @modafurnishings have some amazing sets. 😍 Although... I think getting into the house is our main priority right now 😂
We’re still really struggling with removing the paint from the right hand side of the house (where the old extension was before we knocked it down). Eventually we will be cladding the extension in either black or charred wood so plans are to extend the cladding across the lower right hand side of the house to cover the paint and then hopefully grow wisteria up it to brighten it up. Is wisteria easy to grow We don’t have the best green fingers 😂😫
I hope everybody has had a lovely weekend, I’m looking forward to the bank holiday already 😂🥂🙌🏽
