The fun part of designing your own home is collating all your ideas. Checkout Lot 271 to see what inspired our house design, and the features we wanted included in the floorplan. Cheers, Bernice
We have been finalising all the details for our new house we commence building next week (looking at, sometimes arguing over, and then finally agreeing on tiles, carpet, bench tops, door handles, basins, floorboards, house colours……endless decisions!)
– I have started a new blog about the above mentioned (and extremely exciting) house build in Torquay.
So this is it.. the official launch of Lot 271!
It is with great regret we have decided to sell our wonderful home and move about 50 Minutes out of Melbourne. We are searching for more space for us, and more back garden for Jack (the dog)! It will officially go on the market next week, so I thought I would give you all a sneak peek (I just got emailed the photos taken yesterday – what else was I going to do with them?). So here’s your extremely privileged preview….

house in our street is up for sale by auction next weekend, and as a nosey supportive neighbour I naturally tip-toed next door to have a look inside (twice!).
Why twice? Because there was so much to take in – the interior design particulars, and smart renovation techniques needed more than one visit to absorb. I was particularly interested because the house was exactly the same layout as our house (originally).
Some of the key features to look out for:
Use of natural light via internal courtyards
Beautiful bathroom (I can picture myself in that bath, oils burning, music playing…)
Creative interior design features
Neutral colour scheme complimented by the chosen decor.
You may not want to admit it, but I bet every one of you has a secret stash of shells at home crying out for a purpose. Collecting shells is a funny pastime, because you rarely do anything with them (unless you were one of the many who made shell mirrors in the 1980’s – and we all know that fad came and went very quickly). Being the hoarder that I am, I have to keep all my shells – after all, I have spent hours hand-picking each one out from the crowd, why would I throw them away? However, the dilemma remains – what can I do with my shells?
