Under renovation

Our house is going through a bit of a makeover!  We definitely bought a renovators delight/nightmare of a house and have so many dreams for it that watching some of them come into reality is so gratifying.

Otto is loving watching the workmen do their thing, but it does make this mamma's job hard to get him to nap with all the hammering, anglegrinding, drilling and banging.

So while the day started like this,

with quiet wonderment of the men at work, it unfortunately, ended like this,

Poor Otto had just had enough of all the noise and lack of sleep, luckily this part will be finished on Monday, however we still have to build a patio and paint the house, there are a few tough days in our future.  This afternoon we went for a little drive in the countryside with some classical music playing softly to calm down a bit and that worked, I hate to see him get so upset.

On a good note though, the house went from this,

to this,


  1. I love renovations! I have a few to do to our place but so not motivated. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

  2. Thanks! I am looking forward to the end product, hopefully from now on we can head to my mum's when they are using the tools!
