The Aardvark Cottage Beautification Project # 1

We're renovating our 1920 built house. It has over the course of its life spent time in the hands of concrete-loving elderly Italians and a long string of renters. So there's lots to do! I'm going to post before and after shots...I love before and after photos!

The first one is our shed. It was asbestos (walls AND roof) with a broken old louvre window...a horrid eye-sore but it's huge and useful. We had a team of (actually, quite frightening...ex criminals?) burly blokes come and get rid of the nasty stuff and then we re-clad it in timber and painted it. It makes me so happy now!



Of course the garden has also changed quite a bit...but that's for another post!


  1. I just love the colour of this shed!

  2. p.s
    Your ravelry link doesn't work for me. Not sure if it's your end or mine.

  3. Yeah for before & after pictures AND you having a blog.
