Finishing touches on Apricot Cottage

This year has been the year of the Apricot Cottage upgrade, which has been achieved in several stages.

The kitchen has been renovated, new ceilings in the kitchen, dining room and lounge, new floor tiles in the kitchen, split system air conditioner installed, new beds in the second bedroom, new couch for the lounge, new front and back doors, and much painting work

The upgrade project still has a few items on it, though much has been achieved this year

Apricot Cottage re opened for Easter

Following much work and many hours, the interior renovation of Apricot Cottage was finished by Easter, and ready for our Easter guests.
Two interior walls were removed, kitchen cupboards, bench tops, sink and drain board were replaced, and the remaining walls repainted.
We are pleased with the result.
