My Obsession with Homes Under the Hammer

*Collaborative post.

 

I have an obsession with Homes Under the Hammer. It is one property show I love watching on BBC. I have been a fan of this show for many years now, Been loving it long before we became home owners. My obsession is so serious that I watch this show everyday and play catch up on BBC iPlayer when I miss it. I remember daydreaming about owning homes or at least a home to start with in the UK. It is amazing we now own our home, but building a property portfolio is still a dream. I hope to change that dream to a reality one day, and I know I can with hard work, planning and determination.

Why do I Like Homes Under the Hammer So Much

I think the show is brilliant. I love seeing deadbeat homes transform into luxurious houses. The whole auction and renovation process is very interesting. It is amazing to see how much a deadbeat house is worth and how much money and times goes into renovating it. Seeing the profit margins motivates me even more to get into the property business as soon as we can.

The fact that a house can be easily transformed with some tiles/carpets, blinds, beautiful decor, paint, lean to conservatory, French doors, and more is great. It makes me want to step up my DIY skills. I have seriously improved when it goes to DIY. Some months ago, I couldn’t even use a screwdriver properly when I had to change the batteries in the kiddies’ toys, but now I can. With things like this, it takes determination, and I am determined to be better at doing home improvements around the house.

Our plan is to paint some of the rooms in the next few months, and I am looking forward to getting my hands dirty. Most of the homeowners that appear on Homes Under the Hammer do a good portion of the home improvements themselves to save money, and I don’t blame them. In order to increase the profit margins, you have to be able to do some of the work.

I wanted to be an Interior Designer

Once upon a time, I wanted to be an Interior Designer. I played around with the idea for months, and even started an online interior designing course to help me achieve my dream. But I never got around to being one. The dream kind of frizzled away, just like my dream to be a Fashion Stylist(which I also studied for), and my dream to be an Accountant/Human Resources Consultant, which I studied at the University for 5 years in total for both degrees.These dreams and more frizzled out, giving room for my current career, which I love by the way.

Sometimes I do catch myself thinking about my dream of becoming an Interior Designer, especially when I am watching TV programmes like Homes Under the Hammer (I use to watch it every morning at some point), and wonder how my life would have been if I really became one. However I am very happy with the career I have chosen and how my life is going, so no regrets here.

I guess that explains my love for pretty homes. I am quite homely; I like to spend time in my home, and I like it to look very pretty. If I had an unlimited budget, I would give my house a complete makeover. I have many home improvement ideas in my head but I have to take it one at a time so I get them all done properly.

I have previously written about our garden plans and our need for a big shed. We got one last summer and we are making good use of it. It is a perfect size, so it stores all our junk neatly, and there is space for some more junk, which is good. The only thing I am considering changing is the shed windows. I recently came across Simply Plastics – a supplier of plastic materials and products for over 25 years, and they stock Replacement Acrylic Shed Windows, so I will be exploring that as an option later in the year.

I would also like to improve some of our home decor like cushions, mats and the likes. I plan to do that this Spring.

My favourite part of the house is the bedroom, followed closely by the living room. I spend a good amount of time in both rooms, and I like them looking their best, as well as the rest of the house. So new bed sheets, duvet sets, curtains and the likes will be updated this year.

The kitchen is my busy place, I like all the required kitchen tools and gadgets in place, to make my cooking as fast as possible, and my family fed. I recently got some new kitchen gadgets so I think we are good as far as the kitchen is concerned.

The truth of the matter is we never stop improving our home. Whether it is a new coach, washing machine or a new home office table and chair, the home improvements never really stop, especially when you are a home owner.

 

Do you enjoying home improvements? Have you ever studied for a career but decided against it?
