The Annexe



As if the garden shed was not enough
I embarked, yet again, in another "reconstruction" project
This time round, the renovation works involved the granny annexe





Initially, the annexe was made up of several small rooms.  Since I'm not keen on having so many poky rooms, I decided that the walls needed to go!
Enter Team Polish Builders... they may not speak English, but, boy, are they hardworking!
The demolition works took them about 3 days.
Four walls were removed to make the required renovations.













The result...
I've created(?!) a larger, brighter open-plan living area that hosts a kitchenette with a small dining area and MrD's home office as well























View of the main house and the garden shed
and, yes, my windows need cleaning!!!






As a finishing touch
~ our custom-made hand-painted Delft-ware name plaque
finally finds its place...

    1. Salam Ros,
      Thanks, Ros, kak Muna memang suka non-fussy space, lagi open-plan lagi best... but, open-plan is more difficult to maintain 'cos tak boleh nak main sembunyi-sembunyi.
      The annexe ni is a separate building from the main house, but it's linked to the garage and stables.

  3. Muna, kalau you pasang cermin besar kat one side of the wall, lepas masak, you buat aerobics.. pas tu mandi. Pas tu bentang toto... tidoq. Hahaha.. terbaek punya aktiviti! Tapi honestly, whatever you do, surely the end result will be awesome! Meh datang renovate rumah i yang sekangkang kera ni..... surely lepas tu I tak keluar rumah punya sebab rumah I confirmeddddd cantik!
