Renovation Day One

So, the work on our flat has begun in earnest! We're having a complete re-wire and new kitchen and bathroom. The re-wiring will necessitate total re-decoration, but it was time it was done again really. It's been 7 years now.

Day one was yesterday and was 'demo' day. Demo short, not for demonstration, but demolition. Originally, we were told that it would be a short day's work with just the wallpaper coming off in the kitchen, but it turned out to be a little more severe a stripping than that. Have a look:

Here's the bathroom too. From the window before and after:

Then towards the window from the door:

Needless to say, we are taking showers at my mum's place!!!

Day Two is fitting the new bath suite. Even though that happened today, I haven't done a pic yet and there's no work going on tomorrow, (Saturday), so I'll post that one then. Day Three is the complete re-wire and will be by far the worst. After that, it's putting stuff back together rather than destroying it!
