Georgia Kousoulou has shared a look at the progress on the extension of her new house as she and Tommy Mallet continue renovations.
The TOWIE power couple snapped up the five-bedroom Essex mansion earlier this year, and have been documenting the renovation journey as they knock down walls and rip out rooms to make space for their own designs.
So far it's been a lot of building work and planning the layout, and while there's been some extra costs Georgia and Tommy are planning to move in after Christmas.

Georgia showed what the house first looked like from the back, including part of the garden, and how they had started to knock down one side of the wall to make space for an extension to where will now be the kitchen.
She posted another snap of the second stage which saw a wall mid-build as it formed the shape, before its current state which is the wooden beams forming the structure of the roof adding lots more space.
The 29 year old reality star took to Instagram Stories on her house page to answer questions from followers about the plans she and Tommy had for their new home.

She revealed that if things kept on schedule they would be looking to move in by early next year: "We are planning to move in after Christmas, in January.
"I just think the Christmas rush is too much. So I would rather get Christmas over and done with in this new house, be all cosy, then move in fresh start in the new year."
Georgia was asked how many bedrooms the house had and explained that there were five in total but she and Tommy, who already has his gym in place, were already in the process of making two of them wardrobes.
"So me and Tommy have separate dressing rooms because I'm really messy and he's tidy," she added.
"And I just feel like we've had that set up already so why change it? And also, listen, we're still together so it's working!"
The TOWIE star also said that they wouldn't be getting a pool installed despite there being enough space: "I just don't like swimming pools, my parents' house has a swimming pool and we all got in it like three times and it was inside. Also safety with the children etcetera, no, we'll just get a paddling pool!"

The couple, who have made their money from reality TV and Tommy's impressive trainer empire, were able to snap up the house but it's still proving costly to complete the renovations.
As Georgia responded to one question asking about expense: "Yes it is very expensive, and I just feel like everything is more than you planned. So if you have got a budget always add on extra."
The pair have also taken on different parts of the renovation, with Georgia explaining she is doing the interiors and Tommy is doing the exteriors, which he is "really excited" about.
