Now that we have been in our house for over a year we finally have the go ahead for decorating the walls etc as we had to wait the full year until after the snagging had been done as it’s a new build. The walls have settled and luckily there are no cracking problems but we do have quite a few pin pops coming through the plaster, which the builders came and ‘poly filled’ and painted over but that was a couple of weeks ago and they have popped out gain now!
Also, how on earth does our house look so beaten up after just one year?! I’m putting it down to a little tornado of a 2 year old and his grubby hands and ability to bounce off the walls!
our last house was decorated in bright purple and as nice as the colour was, it also made the house look very dark at times and now we have a naturally light and airy property I’m keen to keep it like that, but with a twist as magnolia in EVERY room is a tad dull! I’d love to know what everyone else has in terms of colour schemes so I can get some ideas!
We are still getting random calls from people thinking we are a company as our number was listed on a companies website! which is a bit crazy as we were the first to have this number!
In terms of utilities we are now fully sorted out and even got round to getting home insurance thanks to the help of comparethemarket , seeing as we both are photographers and have gadgets that’s one headache I have avoided.
Our garden is coming along nicely too now, when we moved in, the garden was just plain dirt and we had turf put in but was scared it wouldnt grow as we have a massive tree out the back and the roots come all the way through our garden but (with the thanks to the crazy weather we have had!!!) the garden is green and lush and growing! So much so that weeding is a never ending battle 😉
