Our Other Abode


Whilst we are residing in sunny Singapore, there is another piece of us that we've left behind in Melbourne.

That is the house that we'd shed our blood, sweat and tears over its design. One of our closest friend drew the house up. We then spent hours discussing and picking the details of how we want it to be.

Dealing with builders is the biggest pain of all. They are an unreasonable, crude and incredibly rude bunch of pricks to deal with. You dun know how much of a bitch you are capable of being, until you have to engage in a conversation with them.

The only good thing is the house is building beautifully. The frame is finally up. And now it's time for the fixtures and walls and roof to be installed.

Needless to say, the painful thing is seeing the mortgage inflate as the stages progress and man! does it stink to get a bill for the rock removal in the five figures zone. GRRRRRR....

And now we await the arrival of September where we can see the end of this project! *fingers crossed they will complete in time.*

For now, I'll leave you with pics of the wooden frame upon a hill.
