Update 2010





After more than 2 years, I thought it was time to update the blog. We have been very busy with life but have managed to make alot of progress on the house and garden.
The most exciting for me was the landscaping around the back deck. As soon as we moved in, a new house sprang up behind us and combined with our own hideous dirt pit in the backyard, the panorama was not pretty. As a result, our deck was not being used. But that has certainly changed now. The addition of privacy screens and plantings means we virtually live out there now - take a look...




Other additions include chickens, apple trees and solar PV panels which are currently producing enough power to eliminate electricity bills for most of the year.

It's looking gorgeous Del. Congratulations on all that you have achieved in the past few years. Hope that you and Greg are well. :-)

Hey Del,

Your house is looking good! Indeed, a lot has changed in your house in the past years. I am currently in the process of DIY home building and reconstructing. I've been thinking of living 'green'. So far, I have installed my solar panels and I might grow my own garden like yours.

Thanks for the sharing your inspiring home.

Ahhh .... reminds me of our long, lazy Sunday morning eggs, bacon and hot cuppa. Might have to invite myself up for the weekend again soon!
