Coming with constraints like I do -- unmarried couple, dogs, you don't quite attract houses like moths to flame. Coupled with requirements like must have a terrace, should be in a good area, and close to all the action doesn't help much. So after months of a house hunt, when the next thing that ticked all of these boxes, and for once the landlord didn't shoo me away like expired milk, I knew I was going to lap it up. (the house, not the milk) challenging as it was.
- Had a terrace
- 2 Bedrooms on a terrace
- Potential for a garden
- Allowed dogs
- Nice neighbours that liked dogs
- Landlord didn't stay in the house
- Koramangla (or there about)
- Tiny "living room"
- No separation between the bedroom and the kitchen
- Weird approach
- Not the best part of Koramangla
I knew I could fix the first two, and the 3rd a bit, even if I couldn't help with the last. So the project that started even before I moved into the house, and took months to complete, and continues to this day, looked like this.
The first set of pictures is what I inherited.
This is what the house looks like now
