The first look at our new house
We sent off our application for planning permission for the remodel of our house last week and our fantastic architect (who's actually a structural engineer) sent us some 3D projections of the house yesterday. It's our first opportunity to see what it will look like when it's complete and the appearance is a long way from the century old bungalow that currently stands on the site.
Some of the ground floor windows will be replaced and a first floor extension will be added, but almost all of the internal ground floor space will stay the same. It won't be quite as grey as it appears in these pictures, nor will the grass be blue!
Now we must wait patiently for the planning committee to make their decision which should be in another two months. It's unlikely we'll be able to start work this year, but I'm quite happy enjoying the journey. Our next step is to choose the colour of our cladding, though I'm sure the cpuncil will have something to say about that too!
