I wish I had started this when I first moved here. I will try to show you regularly before and after pics of the previous works we have done. In 2007 we discovered termites had been using my place as a McDonald's drive through. Well, when I say we, I mean I fell through the workroom floor that I had hoped would finally be usable for me to start making some money. ( I do beading and craft work amongst other things!)
Did I mention we live on a 22 degree sloping hill? That the drive access is at the back? The front has no road access? There are no fences? There is no drainage? Oh golly, the list goes on!
I always wanted to do my renovations as cheaply as possible and have as small a footprint on this planet as possible. I have always been a bit of a greenie. I want to reuse as much as possible. On my low income it becomes even more an issue to not spend. I really do not like the modern houses of 'designer this' and 'designer that' which go out of fashion in a week. I want warmth, both physical and for the soul. A house is a house till it has a personality from the owners then it becomes a home. So I shall endeavour to entertain you with my progress. It will be an interesting journey, that I can guarantee you!
