After getting our offer accepted in October 2016 (on my Birthday!), it has been a very long 5 months of waiting until we exchanged and finally moved in!
The previous owners rented out the property and had to give the tenants 2 months notice which made the waiting game even longer. As we was itching to move in, a lot of big events happened such as;
- I turned 23 (last year of being early 20’s)
- My sister got married in Italy (which included a holiday to Lake Garda and Venice, because it would be rude not too!)
- Toms God Son turned 1!
- Had a mini holiday in Wales where we did the Fan Dance SAS Route and hiked up Mount Snowdon
- Welcomed 2017
- Tom and I both ran our first Marathon in Brighton
- Found out i’m going to an Auntie!
Anyway, back to houses…
We FINALLY moved into our new home (Victorian house converted into different apartments) on the lower ground floor in Shepherds Bush! A very exciting time as we plan on converting our little studio into a 1 bed apartment which include removing a supporting wall, relocating the current kitchen and bathroom, replacing sash windows etc. (going to be very busy!)
Attaching the floor plan below. I’m no architect but a quick job on paint hopefully should show the plan (Red line is the wall which is going to be removed and the blue line is the wall to be added)
The current bathroom will become our bedroom, the studio area will become an open plan kitchen/dining room and the current kitchen will become a bathroom.
I’m sure I will post again during each stage, but for now I will post the “Before” pictures below.

That’t it for now! Now onto getting multiple quotes per job and start planning!
