Our new house is very old and has been neglected for a very long time. After the old lady who lived in it was moved into a home, her family rented it to people who, among other things, liked to punch holes into the walls and ceilings. Many of the windows didn't open so we had to end up changing all the old ones for new. All the carpeting has now been pulled up and today we're having a brand new boiler fitted, something we didn't even know we would've had to do.
Many of our pictures are now up on the walls, but they'll soon have to come down again when we start work on stripping the old wall paper (held on by sticky tape in some parts) off and preparing the walls for a fresh coat of paint.
Here's to a whole lot of work!
