    The living room here hasn't been decorated since we moved in back in 2002 so needs a major makeover, here are a few photos as is, I plan to remove the fireplace and build an artificial chimney breast plus put a new floor down in the dining area, and rewire all the electrics and lighting...

    @Terry Page Looks nice and cozy! Nothing technical this time! My wife would give the left part of my anatomy for those double doors, though! They look like oak.

    Well I could barely believe me eyes Terry, you really are a Whirlwind :D
    I like the look of that first picture of the streamers from the ceiling - very arty, maybe you should
    keep that bit :p

    @Terry Page , whatever those doors are, they are beautiful. Please don't paint them.

    Not too sure about the streamers, @Patsy Faye . LOL

    I'm looking forward to seeing your finished work, terry.

    Here is the state of play at the moment, most of the room is decorated and the artificial chimney breast is almost complete, all the old carpet has been removed and taken to the tip, so it's all going to plan at the moment...

    I have just about finished the living room area ready for the carpet, I fitted a door to the bottom of the stairs, it was originally the kitchen door but I took it off because we never used it.

    Well the carpet is down and it looks amazingly good, so I am pleased with the result, the fitter joined the carpet to the wood very well without a joint strip................photos below.

    I have a few more odds and ends to do in the dining area then it's completed...ready for me to go to Russia for a much needed rest ;)

    Wow, very nice @Terry Page , I too am impressed. Your so lucky to have such skills, and also lucky that like @Bobby Cole, you live a long way from me. I'd be bugging you to let me hire you. :eek: :D

    Your home reminds me of an apartment I rented way back in 1070, in Boston, Massachusetts. It was what we call an old brownstone. I lived on the third floor. What reminds me of the brownstone is your place looks very narrow, just as my place was.

    Thanks for being concerned about me @Ina I. Wonder. Yes I'm at my daughter's but I'm not doing much visiting...just a whole lot of spoiling everyone! :)
