After several years trying to find a house suitable to convert for Stephen we have had an offer accepted.
Hope to exchange win the next couple of weeks so we can begin the renovation and extension works. Finally Stevie
will be able to have a proper shower and his own space.

Thanks Mike, the different bays are a classic victorian design apparently, according to the architect.

I'd have 3 cars in there like a shot!

What plans have you for it, I assume it's a downstairs room/bedroom for the young fella for a start?

And are we going to have to call you Sir Gaz from now on? lol

Looks like a great house Gary, huge congrats to you and your family, best of luck with the mods for your son and with the move.

I have to say it may not be a safe neighbour hood though, looks like someone has shot up your front door.

Shay, no money left for cars lol. Yes extension with two bedrooms, sitting room and wet room. Ive got as much chance of getting a knighthood as Vladimir Putin lol. Hope you follow along on FB.

Al, thanks, yes we must catch up soon.

John, thank you, I agree we must sort the Skype thing now I have it working.

Curt, thank you for the kind words, the studs in the door do look like bullet holes lol. The neighbours are very quiet though, the house fronts onto a cemetery! Will be great for halloween

You could fit a model shop[ in the basement.

Thanks Chris, much appreciated.
I probably will have a basement room or a work area in the extension so I can work while watching Stevie, not sure yet to be honest.

Curt, there is great demand on the space, everyone has their own ideas lol.

Shay lol, a bar and pool table going in the big basement room, and a home cinema would be nice in one of the others. the smaller one could be a good hobby room but a cloak room/bathroom would make sense.

Thanks for the interest guys.

The place looks great. I especially like the asymmetrical frontage, it screams "Breakfast Nook and Hobby Nook." Als, that arched gate to the back is just fantastic. Congratulations on getting it and may the reno's be uncomplicated and smooth.
