With alot of things happening (not Barcoola related). We made a decision to move to the country, it was alot of work and false starts, but we finally found a block of land that would suit the new blended family.
This also brings with it a clean slate and the chance to have a custom built house, the concept at this time will be that the back of the house will be double story to take advantage of the "views". (It's true , blokes don't understand "views").
The lower level will be dedicated "entertainment" area, not to be shut off from the rest of the house, it should include a workshop, storage area, amenities etc and dedicated train room. No shed in the backyard! This means that it will become an integral part of our and our friends lives.
Bill, might think we are stalking him (he made the same decision), but we aren't, honest mate!
The house plans are only at the concept stage at this time.
Lots to do, and it should be a great journey.
