Welcome to our renovation adventure! My name is Becky, I’m a wife, mother of energetic twins, photographer and full-time HR Manager. We live in Almondsbury. North Bristol. On 18 December 2017 we moved in to our 1960s fixer upper, Little Ravenswell. It has tons of potential and our goal is to maximise this by creating a light, open family home.
You can track the build progress here, we had planning permission granted in early May 2018 and we went out to tender in September 2018. The builders started work on 7th January 2019 and finally finished phase 1 of the renovation in the middle of April 2019. You’ll be able to follow the transformation of this family home on the blog and being a photographer, I’m going to definitely love documenting each stage – no matter how dusty it gets. I’m doing all this whilst trying to nail the working Mummy ‘thing’, so will also be sharing travel, interiors, recipes, gardening and child life hacks along the way!
This is our story :
Throughout the renovation of the house I’ll be sharing regular house tours, DIY projects and hints & tips that might help you if you are about to undertake a similar project. Our home will be constantly evolving over the next 12 months as the project gets underway so do check back to see progress, and why not follow me on instagram and enjoy my daily insta-stories.
The adventure has just begun … I’d love for you to follow along.
