The top floor landing is a real sun trap and is turning into one of my favourite parts of the house.  It’s always nice and warm and really bright and airy.

Getting the window repaired turned into a bit of a nightmare as it took far longer to do than we’d hoped and therefore caused us long delays but it was definitely worth doing.  We had to have it hand made to fit the shape and installing it was not easy but we got there in the end.IMG_3407

If it had been left to me I probably wouldn’t have thought about changing them but it was definitely the right thing to do as they look so much better.


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
