The thought of waking up to birds tweeting sounds lovely and idyllic but unfortunately the only birds that seem to like hanging around our house are pigeons!  Now, I’m not really a fan of flying birds at the best of times but these pigeons are particularly annoying and the noise (squawk) they make is pretty terrible too.

As soon as we started talking about the work that needed to be done to the roof I mentioned the pigeon spikes and I’ll carry on mentioning them until they get installed (I’m paranoid we’re going to forget and the scaffolding will come down before we do them).  I was therefore very excited when this box arrived the other day:



About katerenovates

Hello and welcome to Kate Renovates - a blog about my attempts at renovation. The Husband and I have now been living in our house for four years and changes are being made slowly. It's an unloved Victorian townhouse that had been converted into two flats. Armed with a little bit of know-how and bags of enthusiasm, we have turned it back into one house and are transforming it into our home. Many of the original features remain but the flats had been rented out and so none of the rooms were in great shape. Luckily, it has a fully functioning kitchen and we recently finished the new bathroom and so things are getting more and more comfortable all the time. We're learning as we go and sharing our ups (and downs) on here as we try (fingers crossed) to bring the house back to life. I'd love to hear your thoughts on my blog or any tips you may have on our house project, so to contact me, please email
