The Journey of building our forever home in Melbourne, Victoria

The Journey of building our forever home in Melbourne, Victoria

Week 2 - Dream House

After a few weeks break for Christmas and the New Year the bricklayers were back to it. Lots of progress being made to the sub floor as our house sits on brick piers and sits quite elevated from the back. Rather exciting seeing the outline of the house not including the alfresco or front verandahs. The boys and I were away for the week down at Barwon Heads in our caravan so hubby kept us updated with lots of photos - had a lovely and relaxing stay but of course the weather only got warm on the second last day before we left!

Lovely red bricks - the whole house will be fully rendered though with weatherboard detailing on the front

Garage going up

Starting to see the outline of the house - hard to take a good pic as this is from the side ( hubby took this so I am sure I would do better being a professional photographer - must bring my camera next time!) All the tradies keep commenting that it will look great with all the ins and outs of the home - we wanted to make sure it wouldn't resemble a long ranch style home so set the garage and studio back on each side
