#selfbuild


This feels like forever ago now. I'm so bad at keeping up with posts but I'm glad I have pictures to remember the process. Here's some shots of Ian and I putting in the door! It was pretty scary cutting such a large hole in the van but I'm so pleased with how it turned out. . . . . . . . . . .   #vanlife     #vanconversion     #lifeinsidealuton     #vanbuild     #lutonvan     #selfbuild     #tinyhouse     #camper     #campervan     #motorhome     #selfbuildmotorhome     #selfbuildcampervan     #lutonvwnbuild     #tinyliving     #livingsmall     #minimalist     #offgrid     #solarpower     #livingfree     #buildingmyhome

After a few days of rain, blocklayers are back on site doing what they do best. These guys are amazing, couldn’t fault them. Progressing really well. Can not wait to see the last of the external openings formed tomorrow and then on to internal walls 🙈 Battling with daylight to try get to site in the evenings before dark, got to take a few pics today before I ran out of daylight. Admiring the daily progress. Successful meeting on site this morning discussing the Truss roof design. Armstrong Timber Engineering and Kavanagh Roofing on site to discuss time frames and I’m excited to say my roof should be arriving in two weeks 🙊 Harte construction’s organisation skills really shining lately with everything running like clockwork. Could not have asked for better from him or any of the trades so far. Let’s home I’m not jinxing myself 😂🤞🏽   #selfbuild     #selfdesign     #architecture     #selfbuildireland     #design     #irisharchitecture     #newbuild     #site     #project     #newbuildireland     #views     #greenacre     #teach  n   #acraglas     #teach  nacraglas   #countrycottageireland     #newhome     #construction     #progress     #admiringthesite     #lovemylittleacre     #blockwork     #TrussRoof     #ArmstrongTimberEngineering     #steelite     #proudaspunch     #appreciationpost

Sorry it’s been a while. I won’t lie...working, building a house and bring up a family has meant a lot of prioritising. Instagram has not been high on the list... prepare for a lot of   #latergram     #housethatdanbuilt     #selfbuild     #selfbuildscotland

We spent so long with just a ladder that I almost forgot what it was like to have actual stairs... 🙄🙊 In love with the grain of the ash! 😍   #stairs     #ash     #ashstaircase     #selfbuild     #newbuild     #house     #home     #building     #norfolk

How amazing is this kitchen 😍 The kitchen colour has been something on my mind for months. I float between navy, blue and grey. Over and back. Some days I’m 100% decided. Other days I can’t decide at all. We are still a good bit off the kitchen but it will creep on me. All about that Pinterest creeping for the time being 😂😂😂😂   #selfbuild     #selfbuildhomes     #selfbuildireland     #selfbuilders     #dreamhome     #newhome     #kitchen     #kitchendesign     #kitchendecor     #kitchensofinstagram     #kitchen     #mybuild     #building     #builders     #homesofinsta     #homesweethome

Yesterday Matt got back from work and started the process of knocking the wall out, at the top of the stairs ready for the new staircase and banister to be fitted next week. The next wall to come down is the wall in between the living room and the stairs. • •   #NewStairs     #StairCase     #Banister     #HouseGoals     #Home     #House     #Renovate     #OldToNew     #HouseToAHome     #DoubleStoreyExtension     #Rewire     #DoubleStorey     #Electrician     #Extension     #HardWork     #Bricky     #BrickLaying     #SelfBuild     #Lights     #LivingIn     #StartingAtTheBeginningNowWeHere     #FirstHome     #FamilyOf5

Warning, van update! So the last few nights have been spent trying to clad the back door and the roof of the van. I DO NOT LIKE CLADDING! You get it in place, you screw it in, then bam, it cracks. Still, with a bit of trial and error it's getting there, just need to get some more now!

LET THERE BE LIGHT 💡 Today the velux windows got installed in the new slopey (technical term there) bit of roof which will eventually have a kitchen sink beneath it. They look ace and have really brightened up the space which was looking rather dark and dreary being shrouded in scaffolding and with all the blockwork, concrete and lack of ceiling (unsurprisingly!). I feel that standing under these when the sun is shining in, is almost going to make washing up and loading the dishwasher a pleasant experience.... 🤔   #livinginhope     #velux     #veluxwindow     #rooflights     #mydailyrenovation     #houseproject     #homerenovation     #homeextension     #1930shouse     #diy     #selfbuild     #bristol     #myrenostory

I don’t have a single photo to show for myself today even though it was one of those massive transformation days. Too busy lining up stuffs and carrying boxes as lights go in tomorrow. . My Mam can finally see the floor in the study again and I’d forgotten how many house goodies were hiding behind the lights boxes 😍😍! So glad I made use of all those house sales now. . Such huge progress today I can’t even tell ye all of it but the biggest one is the open plan tiles were just finished as it hit dark today. And our   @trunkfloor   wood floors are half laid. So beyond thrilled with our floors, tiles and wood! Just keeping the fingers crossed now and praying that the lights look half as good. Also that I got the right types, cord lengths etc and that nothing is broken in any of the boxes 🤞🤞🤞... . Keep ye posted! .   #selfbuild     #selfbuilding     #selfdesigned     #newbuild     #newhouse     #newhome     #build     #instabuilding     #instahome     #interior     #interiorstyling     #interiordesign     #sitelife     #myhouse     #myhousethismonth     #myhousebeautiful     #myhome     #myhometoinspire     #myhomestyle     #countryhouse     #pocketsofmyhome     #sassyhomestyle     #cornersofmyhome     #stillwaiting

The roof started today after a frustrating break in the action last week (yes I’m looking at you ANDY) 🤣 Anyway, onwards and upwards, let’s get the lid on lads.   #AutomatedHome     #SelfBuild

We’re going to be keeping the interior of the house pretty simple and we’d prefer not to have the TV as the focal point of the open plan area, but we’re not sure how to do that without building a wall cabinet to hide it?? 📺🙈 I did however come across this beautiful image by   @bicker  _design (go check them out!!! 😍) and I wondered if we could build a similar bench seat, with the TV hidden behind the wood at the back. That way we could open up the back to watch TV, but when we have people round, we can close it up and have some extra seating….what do you think? 🤔
