Last year i broke my shoulder twice in the same place, 3 months apart, got a new job, the wife got a new job and now i have the house...ive been busy.
gone from this (it was horrible, cheap arse wood paneling around the fire was falling down, it was wallpapered by stevie wonder, and painted over at least 5 times...):
removed manky fire surround and carpet:
fixed all the damage, re-plastered the walls, repaired the concrete floor where necessary, tunneled some wiring back into the walls, made a proper surround for the fireplace, fixed the ceiling:
lined the walls with paper, put up new coving, painted ceiling/walls/skirtingboard/coving, put up wallpaper:
and now i have a carpet! in with the priorities, fire, tv, rocking chair :D
i had to take up the floorboards in the 3rd bdroom when we had the new boiler installed, so im currently refitting that room (new boards are down) and stripping out the hallway/staircase:
