A 1920s renovation of a London, ex-council home.
“On most estates, house were provided with a generous size garden to encourage the tenants to grow their own vegetables, a privet hedge at the front and an apple tree at the back.”– The history of London council housing
We received the keys to our home in December 2018. We have since added a loft conversion and are in the progress of a full renovation and rear extension build. We didn't plan to do as much as we have (or at least I didn't think so) but we're enjoying the adventure.
Doing as much as we can ourselves means that the renovation takes longer but we're saving a lot of labour costs. We're not putting ourselves under pressure with deadlines but hope to finish summer 2020 when the house will be finished on a smal budget but hopefully to a high standard.
Since documenting my renovation on Instagram, I realised how hard it is to constantly see pretty homes show in my feed. I started @MyDailyRenovation as a community to join people who need support during their own projects and to showcase the best dusty photos that are out there!
