When you’re renovating a house and living in it at the same time, don’t beat yourself up about every room not being instagram perfect. Don’t get me wrong, we will want it there in the end, but when we bought the house, we were living in one bedroom with all of our belongings around us... this is genuinely what it looked like for WEEKS! My top tip this week - give yourself a break! .

@an_babhun_bui_63 Been there! We have done two total home renovations while living in houses. Definitely not fun but so worth it! At the moment doing a basement remodel which is so much easier. Hang in there! Xxx

@the_house_that_dick_built @buildmebythebeach thanks, fingers crossed 🤞🏻 they are predicting the storm to be worse than it is 🤦‍♀️

@buildmebythebeach @the_house_that_dick_built That happened for us, but not those poor people in North Carolina. Will send some good thoughts out for you guys💗

No interior shot today as the house is upside down and I have absolutely no intention of spending Sunday night tidying! So instead here’s tonight’s sunset over the #tyne towards #southshields  .

#Renovation update.

Pic 1 - 4 coats of #farrowandball floor paint to get to a sheen finish rather than matt. Should be dry by tonight to start moving in.

Pic 2. An annoyance of mine has been the dark grey bath panel so it’s being painted #jaclblack to go with all the fittings and walls 
Pic 3 ironing board cubby between the walls of the cellar and Noah’s new room 
Pic 4 cellar floor should be finished today ready to start clearing stuff to plaster Noah’s new room tomorrow

It’s great to see the trusses and get a perspective of what the roof height will be like in the games room above the garage. I really couldn’t visualise the space at all beforehand.

@homedecorloving Yes, darling🌟💟 Wanna get featured on our page next? Contact me for more!!

So the spare room needed a new radiator! The one in there was way too small for the room and Mr D and I like to be warm and snug in the winter... we’ll, I do and he lets me ! It was also in a really inconvenient spot, so yesterday we bought a new one from @bandq_uk and started fitting it. Fingers crossed when we turn it on today we don’t flood the house!!!

WEEK 7... and not a huge amount of progress this week. But the whole house has been re-wired, and we have been rid of all our radiators ️ We’ve been so lucky with the weather so far - how on earth does anyone do this sort of work over winter!?? #renovation #buildingsitelife #myrenovation #extension #northlondonrenovation #kitchendesign

Finally, the spare room is cleared of some pretty questionable fitted furniture, now for some serious wall scraping, filling and sanding.

@gilldunsby @lou_and_los_cottagejourney you will get there - this time last week I was so excited to have carpet all through the house and furniture delivered - I stayed up til gone 1am emptying boxes and I am still opening boxes today - we downsized from a large 4 bed house to a very small 3 bed - - good luck - it all takes longer than you think in the beginning but it’s worth it

When hubby doesn’t agree with you on design decisions ... just put him in the corner of the bush for a while... he’ll soon learn! 
Totally joking!! Mr D is being a gem and wiring up the outdoor lights so we can actually see when we are getting out in and out of the car at night. With winter fast approaching, we thought it might be a good idea so we didn’t have to feel our way to the car in the mornings!

@ivernecottage I never knew it was such a big job till we had it done in our last house . Wires came from the loft through the cavity in spare bedroom & down again to the lounge walls which then looked like yours 🙈 worth it in the end though ! Can’t bare to see wires x

@lou_and_los_cottagejourney @ivernecottage oh yes. Sounds exactly like what we have going on. Can’t wait for it to be done

Today it’s back to school so time is of the essence and simplicity had to be key!
.
Porridge is actually quite quick to make in the microwave so that’s a real bonus 
.
Throw some frozen berries (which helps cooling the porridge down so that you don’t burn your mouth ) a few seeds and you’re done!

Now, where are those book bags?!

We’re on a mission to get all of the living room chasing filled in today, there’s meters of it, which means I will end up covered in filler ... I’m not the neatest when it comes to putting these things back together. The thought of the electrics nearly being done got me excited and I started looking at colours! Struggling to visualise this room once it’s done, but this it definitely helping. .

It looks fancy but the reality is that Gaspard wanted tomato soup and Pierre carrot and so I had a bit of both! 🥕

Since starting my kitchenless adventure I’ve had to rely on more ready prepared food that I’ve been used to and I have to say that there have been some pleasant surprises along the way.
.
One of them is those piri-piri falafels from @sainsburys .
They have a good bite and texture, don’t feel overly oily and are quite hot 
.
I reckon that these will be regular in my shopping trolley even when I have my kitchen back (if I ever have my kitchen back!) 
.
It just goes to show that you don’t have to be a domestic goddess to eat well...

Happy Monday grateful to be feeling positive this morning . Hoping we will have a busy and productive week ahead on site if all goes to plan. Trusses are arriving for the garage, water supply is being connected on Thursday and the bricklayers are working away on the first floor of the main house getting ready for the joiners to come and do the roofing on that section as it’s a cut roof . Also now the kids are back to school it frees up a lot of time for me to sort out doors, floors, sanitary goods etc etc etc  #happymonday #selfbuildni #selfbuildnorthernireland #buildingsitelife #gratitude #positivevibes #mindfulliving

Morning! 🤗
.
After a short break from social media here am I not following my own advice of peacefully eating at the kitchen table...
.
As you know, I don’t have a table since my kitchen is a building site. Until now we made do with our temporary kitchen, which hasn’t been great but totally workable. But now, the builders have also moved in there, which means mess, dust and not ideal conditions to eat, let alone cook 
.
Still, we’re making do somehow and have retreated into the living room. It’s pretty dusty too but not quite as bad as the rest of the house. So I’m eating my breakfast on the sofa with CBBC in the background...
.
Four weeks to go apparently and I’ll have a functioning kitchen🤞

@our_ripon_at_the_maples @homesweethome161 wow thats super cheap! What size is that one? Xx

@homesweethome161 @our_ripon_at_the_maples Looks a similar size to yours. H19.6cm W23cm D23cm xx

So here is a proper pic of our new table and chairs. Love how much bigger it makes the room look being a glass table. And i have to admit, the shiny reflection in it just gets me excited  #barratthomes #barratt #barratthomestheripon #barratthomesthemaples #theripon #ripon #themaples #makingourhouseahome #newhome #newhouse #newbuild #newbuildhome #newbuildcommunity #grey #everythingisgrey #greyeverything #greyobsessed #cleaningproducts #cleaning #newbuildlife #buildingsitelife #dreamhome #4bedroom #detached #house #home #grey #danetti

@maddydaws @our_ripon_at_the_maples brilliant I'm off the range. I've been looking for something for my hallway that has the more wow factor x

@our_ripon_at_the_maples @maddydaws they definately have the wow factor. And to think the one from Next is 4 times as much 😱😱😱 xx

@clarebartram Amazing!! This is like the big reveal on Better Homes & Gardens 🙌

@tarahawley It’s stunning @chloe_ess @alex__farkash!! Perfect place for that little squishy boy to take his first steps!!!

Very productive Bank Holiday on site today we now have a first floor and building can recommence on the main house. It’s great to be able to stand upstairs and visualise where each room is and see the views from that level. Fingers crossed 🤞the rest of the week is as productive as today #selfbuildni #selfbuildnorthernireland #Calona #buildingsitelife #ourselfbuildjourney

@ctl_electrical @the_house_that_dick_built - I was expecting some roof trusses today to continue on with our 1st floor however they didn’t materialise been promised later i. the week! O the joys of self build!

@the_house_that_dick_built @ctl_electrical that’s disappointing, I just wish suppliers would be honest if they can’t deliver when they said they would it would save a lot of disappointment and hassle. Fingers crossed 🤞🏻 they arrive later in the week.

Blind up in our ensuite and pics up in our downstairs toilet.

@blinds2go Thank you for sharing 💕

@our_ripon_at_the_maples @blinds2go not a problem ☺️

Been burning one of these @glade wax melts i bought the other day from Home Bargains. I have to say they are absolutely amazing! My whole kitchen and dining room was filled with the smell and not just up close like some other melts.

@our_ripon_at_the_maples @pasteldreamat14 omg the smell is so strong, i love it! And i have the matching plug in in the hallway so smell runs right through. Even my niece kept walking in the rooms yesterday and said ‘i could sniff in here all day’ 😂😂😂 xx

@pasteldreamat14 @our_ripon_at_the_maples hahaha oh bless her!! Xxx

WEEK 5.... NO ROOF! We’ve made it this far without resorting to nightly takeaways (well I have, Martin has discovered that Uber Eats will bring him kebabs ), but I think we (me) are reaching peak stress levels, so bring on the deliveries!  #extension #renovation #myrenovation #northlondonrenovations #kitchenremodel #myhousethismonth #homeimprovement #renovationlife #buildingsitelife #myremodel #pleasebringfood
