Marmalade cottage was built in 1917. Then it was renovated in the 1950s. Then nothing, really. It's been empty for a couple of years and still has its fabulous, kitsch linoleum floor coverings. And an outside loo and a beautiful cream and green Metters wood stove. Come with us as we transform a gracious shell into a functional house and create a fragrant, edible garden around it.

Are we sitting comfortably?
This is the old lounge suite. The Practical Reinventor has always hated it. It's not fitted into any house in which the reinventors have lived and it dominated (and not in a good way) Marmalade Cottage.
And this is how much space we discovered when we removed it.
And the new rug
And the new lounge suite with Creative Reinventor ensconced
And suddenly there was enough space to put up the Christmas tree!
