Trash To Treasure

After waiting for a whole year, we've finally bagged what we hope to be our dream home!! It's in the Derbyshire Dales and is the higgledy piggledy cottage we always talked about but didn't know if it existed!! It's been a tough old journey of uncertainly, but we're finally here, and with a bit of elbow grease we're gonna turn it around into somewhere we'll hopefully stay forever.

Parts of the property date back to the1760's, and there are many delightful little original features, inside and out. 
The problem was, the previous owner was a complete hoarder and left it in such a mess, we're only just seeing beneath the rubbish and dust! But its been a comical ride- I've discovered 1980's portraits of a topless Kim Wilde, vintage disco lights and really old slides and prints of Belper and the Peaks.  
To the side of the main property there a tiny sweet cottage, which is separate to the house- we have just spent 2 weeks gutting and transforming it to live in whilst the other cottage is being renovated.
