Oh rimu, there you are…

Mum and I have been busy stripping the bathroom and toilet windows in preparation for the new bathroom. The bathroom has been on the cards since we moved into the house a year and a half ago but with the arrival of John and then going to Holland for Christmas the bathroom was put off but not anymore. The plan is to start next month. It will be a big job as we’re taking out a wall between the bathroom and the toilet, we’re adding a new toilet where the laundry used to be plus making a bijkeuken (scullery). Oh exciting I can’t wait.
“New” toilet window – still needs sanding and vanishing
I’ve enjoyed striping and find it very therapeutic so I think I’ll slowly go around the whole house stripping windows and door frames. Since our house was built in the fifties EVERYTHING was made of rimu! Imagine the cost of doing that now!!! Don’t worry NO rimu will be wasted EVERY little piece will be reused in some way (my little brother is amazing at creating items out of rimu). Being the fifties the rimu was also painted over so all our lovely rimu is painted white. I think it’s a great way to give our house a new look for not much money just a little time and patience. I look forward to the our new home.
