Killing the credit card!

Killing the credit card!

WE haven’t decided whose bright idea it was to go there in the first place, but Brendan and I made our way to the seasonal HIA Home Builders Expo at the Perth Convention Centre to have a look at the deals available and to get…

Light show…

Light show…

Just a random one: I liked this pendant light cluster I saw at the Witchery store in enex100. Trés cool, maybe for the games room, dining area or even something different for the alfresco?

Quick change artists

JUST a few quick changes we made that I forgot about… This is the final elevation colour scheme. This should give you a good idea of what is “Charcoal” (darker shade) and what is “Dune” on the features. Again, roof is Colorbond “Monument” and garage…

Decisions, decisions!

Decisions, decisions!

UPDATE: Brendan won’t be home until September 20, at earliest. After a consultation with the doctors, they have now decided that they will not let him fly, and prefer him to remain in England so that they can monitor his recovery and remove the pins…

Kicked out!

Kicked out!

I DIDN’T get the chance to mention any of this in the last post, but while Brendan is away in England to visit family (he’s been away since June 7), our current rental was put up for sale. That normally isn’t a problem, because the…
