Almost a decade since I last got a chance to do some serious DIYing, we've finally bought a new house. Although unlike last time, I haven't got the time to do as much of the work myself. And with a pair of two-year olds in tow we're going to keep renting until the work is completed. As you can see, the living room hasn't been touched since it was originally built in the mid-1960s Because it really needed that extra rug And the kitchen and dining room are pretty old-fashioned too! I've sketched up some plans for both rooms. The idea is to have a 5.1 TV/projector system in the living room with a stereo and wall-mounted speakers in the kitchen-diner: I'll post pics of the other rooms as they're completed, too.
