One Year In Our Home

Wow today has been 1 year in our home. We moved in on 30th November '13.... 2 days before our other house settled. Perfect timing but also a mad rush as Julian flew back to work that same day. Which left me to unpack the entire house with 2 kids. Not something i'd ever want to do again!

Most our spare time and money this year has gone into making our house a home. A home that we love and have such pride in. Our focus for the next year is to get the back garden and parent retreat finished. We have great plans... but expensive taste. Since we plan to be here 'forever' we refuse to let go of our ideas and will make them happen, no matter how long it takes. Hence why we have had a giant 'sandpit' for this past year.

Julian's current project is building our built in BBQ and wood fired pizza oven area in the alfresco. Next we will be getting some plans into council for a pergola over the sand pit area. Then its time to deck! We will add outdoor lounges to this space.. somewhere to relax in the shade on a nice sunny day. There are also plans for a large water feature and rocky creek. I look forward to sharing more of our home with you as these projects happen.

If you havent seen inside our home there are a list on links for each room in the 'Floor Plan' tab above!
