Next phase.......

We are moving into the next phase of will be interesting, exciting and probably frustrating at times too!

As my avid readers (yes all three of you!!) will know we have bought ourselves our own little piece of land in rural West Oz (Australia...not the Dorothy and TinMan place!). Yesterday we made our mark on it by building a cross-over from the road to give us access. There's a shallow roadside drain along the front of the land which was just going to trap any cars trying to drive into the property (I wasn't going to get bogged on my own land for a start!)

It took 5 cubic metres of gravel, a lot of shoveling and a compactor but it turned out pretty good considering my past construction disasters

Once that was finished and tested (!!!) we had a sea container delivered

Followed by some sanding

Next we have to start on the planting of our deciduous forest, orchard and vegie garden. After that comes the really difficult bit.....choosing/designing a house!!!

This will be our view (minus the container which will be behind the house with a large 'man cave' (garage...:-)) next to it.

Isn't winter down here bloody awful....:-)

Will you have enough bedrooms for when we all retire and move in with you?
