Just Bought A House!

Recommended Posts

to add a twist to this, the bloke who bought it applied a literal coat of paint (to the front of the house, which was last painted 4 years ago, front door which was done at the same time, and the kitchen, which was a little tired), put new carpets in the halls & 2 back bedrooms, and listed it for £37-47k more than he paid (!) its gone sold stc which is crazy when another house on the street is listed at 38k less than he paid..

It was genius to put that velux window in just to take a picture of the Downs.

its not a bodge up (I think) - they've simply done very little since I owned it. It was in reasonable condition then, bit ratty round the edges as you might expect but no howlers. The windows are all aluminium, not sure if there are other frames being referred to?

 

edit : just looked at the pics - if you're talking about the lean-to, then yeah its in a pretty shabby shape. For the 8 years we lived there we just used it as outdoor storage
