Four years ago today we moved in to our home. It was the culmination of eleven months of pretty intense building work, and the sum of many more years of planning and preparation before that.
I remember how exhausted we were, after a year of problems, illness and worries. But also elated that we’d finally made it (at so many points we doubted that we would!) The twenty sixth of April 2013 was a good day.
I wanted to put a post together today to mark this little mini anniversary, but also to document Little Wood as it is right now. There are still a million and one things that we have to finish – big jobs and little jobs – but this home was always to be a lifetime project and I think, honestly, the day it’s done is the day that we’ll probably be ready to start again with something new. (To clarify – retirement cottage. And even Andrew isn’t too keen on doing it again for that! 😉 )
Anyway, a tonne of pictures! You’ll have seen some before but I thought it would be nice to have them all together in one place. I’ve a garden update post coming later this week, and if you make it to the bottom of this post there are some links to our build story and individual room posts. I hope you enjoy the catch up if you haven’t read them already!
