We own a house!

We have the keys! We’re not in as we have the work to do. Once Dave was home from work we drove over to the house. We had a look around and measured up the kitchen. Figured out what and where we’d like things to be.

Dave and I started stripping wallpaper that we could without access to the steamer. I sorted out the post that was at the house. Tidied up and then the lovely business of the bills.

I started the water application. Sorted the council tax application. We were unable to sort the utilities as it’s needed to be done over the phone due to the current set up. We’ve found it’s not one we’d like so it’s one of my job’s tomorrow.

After a lovely walk back we made a plan with my parents on what’s next. My step dad is doing some of the work, so we needed an idea in place. Next week we’re getting a skip in place to begin sorting out the cellar and kitchen out. Making sure all is a shell before we can start a fresh.

Learn some new skills in the process.
