All the Befores and All the Afters!

IT'S TIME!!!!!

Tomorrow our first guests arrive! For one whole week they will get to stay in the bungalow on the bank and enjoy what we have been working on for four months!

We wanted to remind everyone just where it started so here goes, the before, during and after images of each room....

The Hallway..
The hallway looked quite dark when we began, although there were features we loved about the space we had to strip everything out to start again. The result, a bright white welcoming space!

The Living Room
We found this space a bit of a challenge due to its shape and not wanting to make one end of the room feel separate to another. The staircase was moved into this room from one of the bedrooms and we managed to arrange our new furniture to keep the room 'as one'.

The Kitchen
A transformation indeed. From the blue and green pattern with glass details to an open plan room with an archway allowing bundles of light in!
This is one of our favourite parts of the property!

The Bathroom
From fitted bath to roll top and radiator to towel rail! This room was a shell just a number of weeks ago! After a long walk on the beach relax with a glass of wine in this calming space.

The Bedrooms
All that was left were floor boards and bare brick! Now - natural coloured spaces with simple furniture. Suitable for adults and little ones alike.

The Loft Space
We have opened this space right up and added a little en-suite into the mix.
Now you can shut the door and enjoy some peace and quiet while the sun shines in!

The Sunroom
The perfect place to watch the world go by and get lost in the waves crashing against the cliff!
Sit back and relax with your morning coffee, with a view like no other!

And Voila!!! That's it! 

The blue bungalow is no longer blue...We really hope you like what we have done to the place!

80 Days Down!

80 Days Down!

80 days in and the Beach House is coming along just lovely!

We headed back to the north east this weekend to help out with tidying the place ready for the next round of work! The guys are keeping the place pretty tidy anyway, lots of paint pots and accessories lined up together. We were just having a hoover round and wiping down the newly fitted tiles, attempting to keep the dust away (hard task). It is all becoming very real that we will have a holiday rental up and running very soon!

The weather wasn’t great this weekend and we arrived the day after the high tides hit Saltburn, the pictures from this were amazing but it’s sad to see the damage caused.
We took a walk down to the beach and along to the valley gardens with little Dezza, there was lots of mess around but the council were working hard to get rid of it all! Once we got the pup home we headed to Burnsyde to see where we were up to.

The guys have been super busy and as always SS has the team all in order to keep pushing this week. Both bathrooms and the kitchen now have their tiles in, the staircase is complete (with a stain that we like), skirting boards are being fitted and door frames are being put on.

Tiles & Tea

When I think about all the work that has been done it is crazy. There really was no stone left unturned when stripping this place back. The bungalow is a completely different place to what it was and each time we visit we are reminded of how hard everyone has worked to get it to this point.

The family bathroom looks amazing, it used to be a very blue and dark room with a fitted bath and gloomy looking shower, now the place is bright and airy, a room you would want to relax in. The Roll top bath is in and with a couple of candles and a glass of wine I think it would make the perfect place to unwind after a day at the beach or a walk along the Cleveland way – I was tempted to try it out there and then!

The picture definitely doesn't do the bathroom justice - and this is before we cleaned it!

Another big change for us to see this week was the floor! We have chosen to have a laminate throughout downstairs and there are a couple of areas that have been started.....and one room finished!! Choosing a wood flooring is a difficult task, every single panel looks a completely different colour each time you blink! We spent a rather large number of hours to get this right! Hopefully you will agree we have chosen for the right colour - Light Oak.

So this week is week 12 and it's going to be a busy one for the full team, nothing they can't handle though I am sure. 

And for me and Dale this week will consist of us (me) spending lot's of time searching for the final soft furnishings, I am unsure if there any websites I have not yet looked on, my browsing history would make me look like I have an addiction. Dale will be busy setting up booking platforms and secure payment methods.

Busy Busy!
