This Is It

Well my friends, there'll be no more Before and Afters from Number 3. It's done. It's dusted... and it's time to move back and concentrate on Number 10.

Here are the final shots of the cottage. It has some new iron on the roof and has also been given a fresh coat of paint. It looks so much better than this.
Other areas like the bathroom, were also given a new roof.

New blinds and curtains were put in the upstairs bedroom, which was also given a freshen up.

Now to the Kitchen.... which was a bit of a mess....but it's looking so much nicer now.

I love the way the floors came up with a good sand and polish.

This was the last photo I took just as I was about to walk out the door and lock it behind me.

The dining room is also much nicer. It just needed some new curtains and a blind and a coat of paint to freshen it up.

All of my "after" dining room photos came out very dark...not sure why.

Here it is from the kitchen, including the vacuum cleaner which got a huge workout these past few weeks.

So my friends...that's it.
It's finished and now ready for someone to move into.
As much as I love Number 3, MONT and I both let out a huge sigh of relief last night knowing we didn't have to spend another weekend there ... until the next time that is.


  1. Very, very nice. All of your hard work is well worth it, but you deserve a nice rest now. So sit back for a moment or two before you take up those power tools again.

    Again, great job and beautiful. -Teresa

  2. Thanks Teresa, it will be nice to sit back a bit and not have to think about it, at least for a while.

  3. Well that's a special little I would like to own. May she (for she is a she isn't she) enjoy careful and loving tenants..x

  4. You and Mont have done a fabulous job at No.3

  5. Wow wow it looks fantastic! You've done an amazing job! No.3 is beautiful!

  6. From old and neglected and to beautiful and fabulous! What a wonderful job you've done of breathing new life into this old lady. Leigh

  7. Thanks Leigh, it was a tough job, but someone had to do it.

    I'm really pleased with the way it's turned out though, very pleased in fact

    Thank you all for your comments.
    Now onto the next project


I love to hear your thoughts.
