A NEW mum has revealed how she and her other half transformed a dated 1970s bungalow into an amazing family home.
The woman, called Roisin, explained that the couple decided to do the renovation while on their parental leave.
In a post, the DIY fan explained: "When we were pregnant with our first baby we bought this 60-year-old country cottage with plans to renovate it during our parental leave.
"Everybody told us we were crazy."
The mum-of-one continued: "Once we had adjusted to life as new parents, we packed up our two dogs and pretty much moved out to the country for a few months to work on the house."
The throwback footage – often with a pram in the background – shows them sanding the floor, painting the walls and decorating the space.

She added: "We got there in the end, and now that our baby is older and approaching one I look back on this footage and think there is absolutely no way we could do this with a toddler."
