Great to see a lot of pride in this thread.

Dumped you by text? That speaks volumes.


#130

You’re doing some great work here. Love following the progress and admiring your skill.
Where do you get your energy?
Love the rose. Agree with miss ellie about the old roses!

i have about 8 old rose bushs and as people have said the perfume when in flower is intoxicating. they are somewhere between 60=70 years old. the house has been here for 130 years


#132

Thanks!
Actually have some updates to add, been busy with work.


#133

We have four that were here when we moved in 40 years ago. Apparently they where there well before that - talking twenty years+
They are terrific when in full bloom with their rich colour and perfume.
Easy to look after.


#134

So impressive ASB, things you say need some work are at the level where I would say “Good to see that’s done”.


#135

Thats right I was destroying stuff

I have a cellar

so old chip board floor had to go

Infiltrate destroy rebuild

Something living here


#136

Lath and plaster, so messy but wow so much work to do this.

Feature wall

No expense on timber in the roof back then


Boards have to go

Old Hot water catchment to accelerate water pressure, hot water was originally pumped to the roof, catchment overflow had a pipe to the roof

I knew the original door way was there :wink:


Apparently newspaper was used as a filler in the 1960’s

Nearly all stripped


#137

Old gas pipe fittings still intact


All the wood stripped


#138

So getting comfortable and back into it

Awesome album

Most are from KingGizzard

Floorboards done with up cycled ones

Time to get whole hearted!
