After buying her first home, Love Island star Shaughna Phillips has given fans a tour of the residence and revealed her plans to renovate the property.
Shaughna, 28, who has recently shared plenty of Love Island secrets including what really goes on behind the iconic mating speeches, took to YouTube to explain more about her house.
The reality star bought the house in June and since then, has been making plans on how to make it “sustainable” after “practically tearing it apart” and revealed that she will doing most of the restoration work herself, “just to save. money wherever I can”.
She told her fans: “I’m going to document the whole process from start to finish so we’re all here together, hopefully! But right now, 1 month deep into the project, and so far the house is almost torn apart and basically rebuilt, the garden is (almost) ready to dig AND I got the plans back from my amazing architects and it. start feeling real now!”
Although Shaugha wants to do most of the work in her house herself she revealed that she has hired her brother to help him as he has just finished his old job.
“He did maintenance and all that stuff at his old job and it was literally a match made in heaven,” she said.
The star also joked that she was surprised at how well she and her brother got along during the process.
As she laid out her plans for the look of the house, Shaughna explained that there was “one highlight” when a wasp’s nest was discovered.
Downstairs of Shaughna’s house an office will be built out and replaced by a possible coat room to store her shoes and outdoor gear.
The social media sensation wants a “content room” in her home and will be adding a home theater and a large pantry downstairs.
Shaughna explained that the cinema room will have “eight to 12 seats” and added: “I have about eight to 12 friends and that’s really wild for me.”
In addition, there will be an open plan kitchen, dining and sitting area downstairs and although she admits she wasn’t keen on the idea at first, a home theater makes it.
There will be a dog shower and a “mud room” downstairs “but that will be discussed at the moment”.
Shaughna then brought her fans into the house wearing a pair of dungarees to do the gardening, but she wore her outfit it wasn’t quite right for her to be doing manual labour.
While visiting her home for fans, Shaughna posted pictures of what it looked like before to show how much work had been done.
She also said that the garden was where the most work was done, although the group had to work extra early in the morning and leave at lunchtime to avoid the summer heat.
Shaugna’s fans are delighted when she revealed that although she forgot to update YouTube, she will be back with videos every two weeks, joking “I hope you will pray for me because it’s going to be a long journey.”
