We caved for central heating. Tropical house warming party anyone?

I can’t believe how quickly everything is coming along. The central heating is being installed this week and I am certainly not suprised that a lot of houses in our area haven’t got around to doing it themselves.
1. It’s expensive.
2. It’s bloody messy!
3. If you’re already decorated, you’d have to start over.

Luckily our house is a shell and we bought it for that very reason meaning we could:
1. Add value over the years.
2. Make it exactly how we wanted it. Our dream home if you will.
3. Have a project to work on as a family.

Here’s a few piccies of how the central heating is coming along so far. We’re away for the weekend and should be done when we get back. After using electric wall heaters that smell like burnt toast in the flat for so long, I’m excited for that cosy warm feeling again when it comes to our first Christmas in the house.

Pile of radiators ready to go!

The boiler!

Upstairs hall. Not much of a floor at the moment!

Main bedroom

Immersion heater in the bathroom has been destroyed woop! Adding extra room

What will one day be the bathroom! The door on the right used to be a separate WC but the wall has now gone and will eventually be a double shower.

Even Instagram can’t tart up a skip.
