First a little background info before going on to the grand ‘Home Tour’ 🙂 …
After initially arriving in the Netherlands in 2010 we took the first habitable/affordable rental property we could find which was by no means an easy feat.
We found that rental properties for the right price in the area where we wanted to live were few and far between.
Before The Renovations ….
After The Renovations ….
We gave ourselves 8 weeks grace and a pretty tight budget to completely overhaul and refurbish the house.
During this time we remained in our rental property which (although very normal here) I found it very frustrating to pay that extra 2 months rent and ferry back and forth between the two houses.
With the help of an all round handy-man/builder and all the extended family of my partner we were able to more or less complete the refurbishment within the given time-scale.

Of course this is still work in progress.
We basically created a blank canvas on which I am now slowly adding to – with the goal of creating a comfortable family home with a nice homey-feel.
