Building Project

With much thought I have decided to share my building experience with you. My husband & I have brought half an acre near the coast in central Queensland.

This shot is from the back of the block looking south.

View from front of block. The road is a dead end, so we will have no through traffic and no houses straight in front of us, I am so excited!

Looking towards the rear of the block. The land behind has a preservation order on it so all the trees have to stay; it's going to be so private.I just have to decide on the plan's now, I keep changing my mind as there are so many gorgeous design's I love. I think I have chosen the right one now, so I'm of to see an architect friend tomorrow with all my ideas, for some advice.

Living in Tropical Queensland, there are so many considerations with the build due to the weather. The house needs to be built around those elements, such as heat, humidity, a strong constant wind during the summer and, of course, the odd cyclone!

It's an awesome block. We've been looking for a block of land since we moved to Aus. But still have no luck! I would love to see the progress of your home. I'm sure, it's going to look fantabulous. ^_^
We're working on the featuring of your lovely products. We'll contact you soon.
Glad to see you on the weekend. Great blog and great products. Hope you get heaps of order.
