what a mess!!!!! lol but i seem to know where everything is :P

22 October 2009

top floor of the old Beacon nearly done :)

wow i've been slack :P .....havent done anything until today and went wild lol

heres the top floor of the old beacon...renovated to be the Lady of the house's private quarters :)

not quite finished as i ran out of skirting and flooring ...doh so annoying :P

i've put her a private bathroom in her room...quite common in those days

Still needs some tweaking ....the beddings all wrong.....but i like it so far :)

11 October 2009

mens smoking/billiard room

finished the mens smoking/billiard/chess/bar room woot!

this means......only one more room to go in the new Beacon Hill !!!!
Hope you like it...i do :)

heres some ideas with furniture :)

or i may make it the dining room lol

we will see when i get the last room finished.....did i tell you i only had ONE ROOM TO GO !!!! :P :)

05 October 2009

starting on the old beacon...:( i dont like seeing it all wrecked :P

i'm starting to renervate the inside of my 1st Beacon Hill....its quite distressing actually.... my beautiful Beacon all trashed :(
I'm sure i will like it better once its done.... gawd i hope i do!!!!
Heres the top floor ladies reading/quiet room and the start of the hallway...this may become her writing room...no idea yet so many rooms!!!! lol

03 October 2009

moving along...another room done and demolition started on the old beacon :O

finished the childrens school/play room....(wallpaper templates to be glued in when all rooms are done ) added a false hall at the back of the room

and today i started the demolition....renervation....of the old beacon hill.... my beautiful beacon is in dissarray :( ....however she will look fabulous once she's done!!!!
let me say....those stairs are a tad tricky to paint when they are already installed....i feel like a contortionist lol

My first visitor ....my crafting helper Sophie :)
ooooooooo and i also moved both beacons into my tiny craftroom...phew its quite a squash but its easier to work on them :)

26 September 2009

little girls bedroom and gents study just about done :)

i got lots done today........just about finished the little girls bedroom and the gentlemans study woot!

how exciting!!! 3 rooms to go!!!

once i've done them all i'll beable to check the lighting and stick in the wallpaper templates in the 3 middle rooms properly
i put a trim over the stairs in the study to try and hide the fact they go to nowhere lol

i'm trying to make it look like they lead up to the tower...i think it works ok :)
Heres an overall view so far....

25 September 2009

study and library

well havent done too much in the last week...had a bit of a break :)
But i've started the study/library and got more of the lights in
heres a preview...still a few trims to go in and not all of it is stuck yet :P

on the up side i have found the tables!!! nothing flash but within my budget and they will work nicely
i'll put them on wheels and move the sliding drawer down so the basements will sit on them...maybe even slide out to view hmmmmmmmmmm will have to see what that looks like first :)

well thats all i've done this week...a bit slack but i did go away for 3 days woot!!! :)

18 September 2009

welcome to 4 new followers :)

Welcome Jolie, Jennifer, Monica and beyondbaffled :)
I'm never sure what to say here :P .... thanks for looking and following and hope you like what i'm doing :)

16 September 2009

The start of the lights :)

i'm starting to put the lights in the new Beacon and fiddling about with decorations....couldnt wait lol
heres the overall so far and the nanny's room

and heres the linen/trunks store and the servant entry

alot to do but its still fun :)
i'll light the 6 rooms on each side first...all the wires will come down the central rooms and go to the powerboard underneath the house....the 3 central rooms will have their wallpaper on cardboard templates and the wires will run behind these then its easy to get to if i need to renervate/swap lights etc
i think i need to concentrate on one thing at a time!! however..... decorating is such fun :P

14 September 2009

the sneak peek....both together :P

today i caved and put them together to take pics for everyone :)

so without further ado......here she is....the back to back Beacon Hill Extravaganza!!!!

hope you like it....i love it:)

now to the insides i'm saving to get 2 coffee tables or some such thing on wheels so she will open for 'play' the basements will be hanging under the tables so you will see them when its open and i plan to connect the towers with a conservatory...well ...we will see how that goes lol

12 September 2009

The outside is done!!!!!!!!

I have finished the outside of the new Beacon Hill!!!!! Woot!!! :)
Now to reno the outside of the first one.....and then.....the big reveal!!! woohoooo yayyyyyyyyyyyyy me :P

Nearly done!!! well the outside anyways :P

I've been shingling all week...only the ridge 'tiles' to go.....
