It has been far too long since I updated things on here but that is not to say that things have not been progressing on the house front.  For a number of reasons things have been a lot slower than planned during 2015 but momentum is now building again and we have big ambitions about what we want to finish before it is Christmas.

The Husband’s vision and attention to detail contains to drive this project on and one example of this is the front door.  We had already changed the front of it from white to black to freshen it up a bit but that was not enough….we have now painted the back and added on lots of door furniture.  It definitely looks much better (and we are far more secure at night) but I would never have thought about doing all of this!

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
