Sorry about the dark photos,my flash is unwell and needs to see Ted the Camera Man,but they should give you the idea.
|Where the new wall will be|
Our home was originally a ''Blunts'' home. These were the first of the pre-form homes,very popular in the 50's and 60's. They were sent out to the country on trains in kit form(wall frames etc) and built on site.
They are a good basic home with few internal supporting walls so the home builder can do a lot of renovation himself.
They generally have timber floors,jarrah and pine,under the fifty year old carpet and lino. Although they don't have a lot of rooms(ours was two bedrooms) these are spacious with built in robes.
|A dividing wall of meat safes|
Originally, my laundry was quite small. I really liked it though!
It had the original concrete double wash trough which was the baby bath for the children in their early years.
As time past,the louvered windows broke and became loose and let in a lot of dust.
So when we started to build on we re-designed the area. Jed replaced the windows,pulled down the original dividing wall between the kitchen and laundry and the plan was to add some space to the laundry and have the outside door entering that room,instead of through the kitchen.
But we ran out of money.
In a nut shell, where these meat safes are will be the wall.
Not just any wall mind you! This one will be a double sided cupboard accessible from either room.
The doors are to made from old shed doors and there will be shelving above for my books!
Do be doo, I cannot wait!
As I previously mentioned.....watch this space!
and don't get me started on the groovy little connecting door with a rope handle he is making!!!!
