Landscaping and stuff

Well, I may have been hopeless on the blog front, but that doesn't mean we haven't been working hard on the house.

Here is some photographic evidence of our efforts...

And, this weekend a start has been made on the deck, which brings us one step closer to the pool.  Yay!

Have a great week!


  1. The pool will be ready just in time for summer. Yeah!

  2. Looking great M! I love the wood panel features in your garden & letter box - are they a DIY / home made product or did a landscaper do them up? I've been looking at a few different outdoor screening products but can't decide on one. Luckily my brother is a landscape architect so we will have a heap of guidance once we're ready!

    1. Letterbox was designed by me; built by Husband. The fence panel (well, the entire fence) was designed and built by Husband. Your brother will probably have the necessary contacts, but we can give you details of our suppliers when you're ready, if you need them. Mx

  3. I love the timber poles in the pool fence. I will be stealing that for sure.
    It is looking like it is all happening in your back yard.
    Just a quick question.
    What colour is your render?

    1. Thanks, Pen. We love the timber with the pool fence look (we've done it a couple of times now!) The house render is Dulux White Duck. I don't know the fence colour, it was just left over paint, but will be painted over in Dune. Mx

  4. Wow! I like the place it was so nice ambiance.Thanks!


  5. I found your website the other day and after reading a handful of posts, thought I would say thank you for all the great content. Keep it coming! I will try to stop by here more often.
