This is what the front door looked like one year ago on Tuesday the 9th of August 2011. Handy place to rest a sweatshirt, but not really going to keep the drafts/burglars out.
Fast forward a year and the door, frame and sidelights are just where they should be.
Before: the snug fireplace (plus door frame.)
Before: the kitchen cabinets being fitted.
After: cabinets and all sorts of kitchenalia in place.
Before: sink area.
After: don't know why I thought it wise to take this photo with even more of an angle.
Before: shot of the kitchen from the dining area.
Before: shot of kitchen from living area.
And finally, a photo of the bottom portion of the garden with the apples trees, fruit bushes, etc.
After: a little tidier this year after we hacked back a lot of the shrubs, although since everything is in full bloom/fruit, etc this part of the garden is looking a little busy.
