We've recently had decorators in and barring a few bits of touching up and hanging of pictures - we've finished the house! Bloody hell!
We bought next door in the summer of 2006. We started building work in the winter of 07/08. We kicked the first builders off site in March 2008. We got new builders in from June 2008 and they finished their stay with us in January 2009. Since which time its take us just under two years to get round to finished the 20% of the house which was still bare plaster and floorboards - two bedrooms, two ensuites, a dressing and a staircase and decorate the whole lot. But its done! And we love it!
We're starting work on the back garden over the winter - knocking down the sheds (four of them!), landscaping etc to give a complete blank canvas. And who knows, we might even get some plants in before the spring!
