And here is the tidy rear garden complete with rusty 15' trampoline   and some of the inside rooms    

Notice the hamsters in the upstairs room and the tarantula and crickets in the kitchen    











The wardrobes that were left that were falling to pieces      we have kept these cleaned them up and put them together properly    


and this was under the plinth in the kitchen    



    think you can understand why i want to totally rip everything in this house out and redo it

all four sheds leaked and are falling apart so all the stuff in them was mouldy and soaking wet   and the garage was half full as well

I was fuming      normally i would of blown my top at the vender but as she had only lost her husband a month earlier i managed to keep my cool    
She thought she could just leave all that crap for us to clean up   
I just stayed calm and told her i wanted everything moved out of the house on the completion day which took until 6pm then she would have to come back and remove everything from the sheds garage and garden which is what happened      but to cover myself i called my solicitor who advised me to take the pics and sent a letter to her solicitor detailing the situation and threatening financial repercussion if everything wasnt moved   
One overly filled builders skip and several car loads later everything was emptied    
This is when we discovered that none of the sheds were any good   all the wooden ones are nearly collapsing   infact we took one down straight away just incase i fell on the car   and the brick shed might aswell not have a roof the amount of water that leaks into it when it rains     Its quite scarey as this one has live electrics in it    Im getting that supply disconnected until we replace the roof    
We've already ripped out most of the kitchen cupboards that were also on the verge of collapse   
luckily i have some drawer and basket storage units im using to keep everything in until we can fix the kitchen up    

    Yes Shelley i bet this makes you feel better    

Hows the work going with your house now    
The electrician came yesterday and one bit of good news is that we dont need a re wire    just an updated board and some sockets and lights added/moved

Oh fab news on the rewire

Yes I feel a whole lot better now ... At least ours was only hidden s**t we had to deal with ...the cosmetics of the house are beautiful

I don't know how you're coping I would have had several nose bleeds by now

I would prefer to have a problem with the cosmetics rather than hidden so there arent any surprises   

My intention was to rip everything out anyway and we managed to get the price knocked down 18K to make up for that    
Some people cant look past decor but i never    consider decor when buying a house    as long as i can get it at the right price   
The size and situation of the house im more than happy with    
The day after we moved in we did question whether it had been a mistake but now that we have started cleaning and ripping stuff out i do feel happier than i was in Ironbridge   
Both myself and the dogs seem more relaxed over here        
I can see it will be really nice once we decorate and put our own stamp on it    
Luckily i dont have any riffy carpets to rip up  the only bit of carpet was in the loft room and we ripped that up and took it to the tip the first week we were in     everywhere else is either bare floorboards or really cheap badly fitted laminate    
The lounge and the hall do have nice real wood flooring that im gonna keep and sand down    Its really unusual  i've never seen any like it before   its planks but they are only about 3 inches wide
   My son is used to living in a s**t tip    hes a student    
hes not due back until May or June so we will make sure his room is sorted by then      even he said it will be nice once its done up and likes the fact that his bedroom will be twice the size of the last one   
He can finally get his drum kit put back up    The neighbours will be thrilled

This house is fine    Even the conservatory is holding out ok with no leaks or threat of the roof blowing off    

It seems well built    i think its just a case of the previous owner hasnt maintained it very well    or cleaned it   

Im surprised the fence or the sheds havent blown down  

Hows your house coping in the winds
