Our Plans...

Ok, so this is what the layout of our place currently looks like...
Very NON user friendly, all over the place and not great for entertaining.
Dark, dingy and small little rooms all over the place.

And this is what it is going to look like!
A bedroom at the front of the house (spare/babies room)
Then our bedroom, and we are getting built-ins!!! At the moment we just have stuff all over the place... Grr...
The bathroom is moving to where the kitchen currently is. It's not going to be huge and I MUST have a bath this time, so its shower in bath for us.
So that our bedroom can technically be called a bedroom we have to put a window in. How do we do that? We have a void type space where the bathroom is. Means there is somewhere to put the hot water service etc.. too.
Then we will have an open plan kitchen and living space!!! Great for entertaining! Opens up the house! Big bi-fold doors on the back of the house to open up to the small deck and yard.

Keep in mind that the whole land size is only 135 Sqm!!! It really is quite tiny. But with the right layout it will really make a difference.

It is currently old, tired and pretty much crap. Next I will take some photos of how it currently looks and post them up!

I don't really know what we are going to do inside? We do know we will be keeping it neutral and quite plain so that it is sellable in the future.
We really only plan to be in this house for about 3 years maximum so we need to be really careful with what we spend and how we spend it.
Then we may keep it and move to Melbourne??? (that's what I want to do) or buy something bigger?
Or we may sell it and still buy something bigger???
Depends on cash flow at the end of the day doesn't it.


  1. How exciting! I need to get on the ball and start the process to renovate my place as well. I'm quite keen to see how your place turns out as I love renovations shows (addicted to Property Ladder and Grand Designs!) and I'm sure it will look fantastic and worth the investment!

  2. Oooh, it's going to be so lovely and open. Definitely love to see the progress shots as it happens!


Thanks for popping by!
