Update ... New Flat

Our new flat, first floor of 31 Caversham Road in Kentish Town, London. This Victorian villa was built in the 1860s as part of a Christ Church estate owned by Christ Church College, Oxford University.

Our street in 1905. Our flat is just out of view on the right side of the road.

Our first do-it-yourself project: the kitchen.

February 2002, the original kitchen.

In March we pulled down the wall between living room and kitchen and stripped the wallpaper and the kitchen tiles.

In April we rewired the kitchen electrics and replaced damaged floorboards.

In May we sanded, dyed and varnished the floor and took delivery of the kitchen units.

In June we had the walls replastered, we then painted them and finally installed the units and appliances.

Done! July 2002. Kitchen complete before Anna's arrival.
