Xmas 2009 update

It’s a wee bit funny this renovation lark. Looking back on the year we have been fairly busy.  Grid connect solar systems, plans through Council, a great relationship with Owner Builder Mag, three rooms renovated, the front of the house almost finished, new veggie beds and a motorhome parking area to list a few of the things we have established.

Here are some slide shows of improvements to the property to give some idea of where we are up to

Motorhome parking area

The garden took a turn the other day. For the better we hope although at the moment it looks a little like a road building site.

Last year we had Nat the Bobcat scrape an area for the motorhome and to put a shipping container. Ultimately we put the shipping container elsewhere but the long term plans for the motorhome parking area have stayed the same.

Basically we are putting down a layer of permeable road base which when firmed down gives a hard stand but is still permeable to water. Eventually over this we will put a layer of decorative gravel.

Nat the Bobcat came back in and levelled the area with a slightly lower portion that we will pave and make it come up to the level of the parking area. This will become our entertainment area.

Any way the photos will tell the story!!
