For a long time, we did not do much to the house. In a way, we treated it as a doss-house, just a place to eat and sleep.
It became dilapidated as a result, and we have tried to rectify the situation.
I have taken an interest in houses. I like to collect magazines, and look for ideas on the Internet.
I look at styles and colour schemes.
I become inspired, and like to plan a new project.
