I’m so used to our new house being a hive of activity that it’s felt quite strange in recent weeks for my husband and I to be there on our own and not surrounded by a team of builders. It’s incredibly quiet with no background building noise – something I’m sure our new neighbours are relieved by. That’s not to say that we’ve finished our house renovation, however. To keep within our set budget, we’re doing all the decorating ourselves, so that means rolling up our sleeves and tackling every room in the house.
