We spent the weekend installing the newly dipped and varnished doors as well as ticking more jobs off our ‘to do’ list @littlhousewales in snowy Snowdonia.

January Update

The push continues to get @littlhousewales ready to rent! The downstairs bedroom is now finished except it’s missing a door – which is about to be stripped! The living room is done (ish) and we’re doing all the last bits of snagging / checking. The house is getting assessed by letting agents in the next…

A weekend in the Hills

INTERIOR UPDATE

Work continues @littlhousewales on the interior! The living room has new bespoke furniture and a new sofa and upstairs has a luxury carpet as well as a half built Ikea daybed (to be finished next week!!!). We’ll hopefully have images of the finished rooms in the next weeks….. probably!

New Bespoke Furniture

Just thought I’d share some pictures of our new, bespoke furniture for our holiday cottage @littlhousewales. I’ve designed them myself, made from reclaimed scaffolding boards but needed someone skilled in wood-workery to bring them to life – luckily I have a very talented father-in-law!!! A great BIG THANKS to Trev Beadle for realising my designs…
