Our Victorian Terrace: Courtyard Transformation | Before & After

If you follow me on Instagram (@RutlandBlog) you'll know that we've been doing lots of DIY around the home during lockdown - preparing to sell our first home!


We bought our first home - a Victorian terrace built in 1890 - in 2015 and did all the main renovations in 30 days before we moved in on Christmas Eve.

Since then, we've been making the house a home and with the extra time we had during lockdown, we've been painting, upcycling furniture and we finally got to round to the final piece of the puzzle, the courtyard.


When we bought the house, the courtyard was very neglected and we always dreamt of it being a private and relaxing place we could enjoy in the summer evenings.
