Thank you for your lovely comments. I thought you might like to see our first project - the bathroom floor.
There's something a bit icky about having carpet in the bathroom. The main bathroom is currently downstairs and is just big enough to twirl in, with the door shut. The en-suite toilet in the main bedroom has been fashioned out of a former cupboard. Both had grotty carpet - it even ran up and over the skirting boards in one.
Armed with a £40 offcut of vinyl flooring, Mr M ripped out the carpet, used the underlay as a template and quick as a flash, we had a sparkling new floor.
And what a difference it makes - the bathrooms feel bigger and are so much easier to clean!
