It all started with a blank block on a sunny Mandurah day – canal at rear, a quick walk to a waterfront park with a playground, a nice neighbourhood, and the rest of my happy life appeared before me. We would be happy to pitch a tent and settle in, but we think the neighbours might object. So here we go, building our first ever house! Well, paying someone else to build us a house.
This blog is a record of the process from blank block to lounging on an outdoor chair (roof overhead), with glass of wine in hand, toasting our new home.
Edit: Over time, this blog has accumulated a loyal band of followers, many of whom are also building. They are the caring, sharing type and often leave comments. Don’t forget to check out their tips by clicking on the “comments” speech bubble. This is found just underneath each post title at the top of each post.
It can be tricky finding your way around a blog. There is a search function to help and my timeline page provides quick links to all the post related to our building progress. You can find both of these tools in the left sidebar.
