Here's our entrance hall on Wednesday 25th May 2011; I'm standing in the front doorway looking towards the stairs; the open door on the left goes through into what is now the dining area; the doorway that you can just see the edge of on the right goes into the snug.
and one shot with it closed, so you can see where our coats live! A bit of a change - new carpets, new wooden flooring, new doors, the bannister, newel post, etc, etc have been painted bright white, new understairs cupboard, new lights.
See; told you there was a fence and a path and a step. Admittedly, these are new fence panels and posts that hubby and our neighbours erected a couple of months back, but there was an old rickety fence there originally. Also, there was always a gravel path, but hubby has laid new weed membrane and lots more gravel to tidy it up a bit.
Next job is to clear away the beds either side of the step and return them to lawn; and also to tidy up/thin out the bed along the fence border.
Still, it's definitely an improvement in the tidy stakes to what it was a year ago (although a part of me does miss that 'Secret Garden' vibe that was going on.) Still, we needed to clear it back in order to get a better idea of what's there so we know where to go from here on.
