TPR and I and some friends invested in a buy-to-let flat.
One of our co-investors took the lead on the renovations and started by dismantling the navy blue bath. We chose the wallpaper (in the event too expensive for a tiny flat to be offered to students) and helped move furniture (including a mattress that we picked up on the street).
Then I volunteered to tidy up the sticky kitchen. It must have been fitted by someone very tall because I could barely reach the sink to do the washing up.
I also kept an eye on the cooking. I was rather suspicious of the potato and pea dish. It looked like it had been poisoned with washing up liquid.
