Our second renovation has well and truly begun, and we are right in the depths of the demolition process. Plaster, tiling and carpet have now all been removed, and our dedicated team, James, Joel and Moh, who are doing most of our demolition and carpentry, are currently working on our flooring level.
Throughout both this, and our last renovation, we have learnt the importance of having a strong, trusting relationship with the tradesmen we work with. We are very fortunate that our building team is passionate and hardworking, and we continually ensure that communication is only clear, and most importantly, that everyone’s spirits are high on site!

Our VERY hands on team. Pictured here are Joel and James, who are literally under our house, calling out measurements to Moh who is cutting joists for the support of the floor.
Projects like this often come with little surprises as sometimes things don’t go according to plan. Such an example is our unexpected discovery of the pesky building enemy: asbestos. Luckily, it was able to be safely removed, and we were able to get back to work in no time! Another thing that I’ve been dreaming of installing arched windows at the back of the house, however prices were escalating, and I had to trade it in for European oak retractable window doors. Gotta pick my battles, right?! They are just as beautiful and I can’t wait to show you the finished product.
Have a look at our moodboard below, a compilation of everything that has inspired our new home. We are absolutely thrilled to be working with talented suppliers and extraordinary brands that are helping us create our dream home. For our new followers, here is a recap of our last renovation - Click here for the final video of Home reno 1. Home Renovation 2.0 will be even bigger and better, and we hope you are excited as we are.
