House update

It has been a while since I last posted about the house - being because not much has happened!!

But we have had some movement - we spent two weeks in Bali (great holiday more about that later)and during this time we have had the retaining  walls completed, the wall for the pool done and the pad somewhat mapped out - so this week the plumbing is to be completed with the view to a slab being down next week - it will be great to see the actual footprint of the house - right now it is one big area -the massive space is housing two homes and to get some definition on that space will be good. (the width of each block is 9.7mts wide)

If all goes according to my plans than we should be having a very merry Christmas in the new home and enjoying the pool over the summer holidays!  

Shall try to upload some plans soon.

Bobcat ready for action.

Dirt pile done - the middle wall is the divide between the two pools.

The left side (west) will be our home - pool wall done now need to render!
The back yard will be small but with a deck and sail shade structure it will be great!

Lest We Forget

ANZAC day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.  For me it is also about taking time to reflect on those who have gone to war - those who are currently at war zones  - those who have lost their lives.  It is a time to reflect on the many different meanings of war and who this has shaped out nation.

Grand Designs - Lucie (and Nat's) house

We don't watch a lot of TV - but as a family we love Grand Designs  - I love watching the houses being renovated or built and being awed by the wonder of the technology that is being used and how every day people have such vision.  Perhaps my all time favourite is the show with Lucie - it is the story of Lucie continuing on,  building her home despite the sudden death of her husband.  The strong desire to create a home for her and the children  - and the home is lovely -  Jerry Tate is the architect. I really like the simple design, the use of space and it looks like a home that is comfortable, secure and relaxing!!
