I have shown you in my recent post, the inside rooms of Britannia Place. The outside needs just as much work, if not more! :o) I am not really into the white brick so hopefully, we are going to get someone to blast off the white and leave the exposed brick. The brick will be very old so on the first attempt, we will get the paint blaster to do just a block. We have no idea what lies underneath and what the old bricks will look like. If the brick does not look like it can be restored or cleaned, we are going to repaint the house white.
This is the garage...soon-to-be dance studio.
The garden of bliss is on the other side of the fence...the side of the house.
From city to village, from condo to cottage...documenting each new experience. From Atlanta, GA to Ryton-on-Dunsmore, UK, renovating an old cottage built in 1915 is just the start. I am learning to garden, cook, and now have my own tool belt. Along the way...there is something new everyday! I am an avid ballroom dancer...it is my passion. I will dance at any opportunity. I still play soccer...in my old age and can feel it the next morning more than I used to. O well...I will always love the sport. I also try and rock out at the piano everyday as my love for classical piano continues to grow and grow. I love anything that has to do with the arts and find that I am a bit creative...it seems to come out more and more. I know nothing about renovations, electrics, plumbing, gardening, cooking or anything else along those lines. I honestly don't even know if I like it yet...but I am trying really hard...learning more everyday. I hope you enjoy reading about my experiences...my days...my joys and my desperate moments where I want to escape!!! Lots of change in a year. A new country, a new house, a lovely new husband and now a wonderful little boy.
