Foundation no 1.JPGFoundation no 1.JPGHi there,
I'm the newbie on the block!!!
I'm a farmer together with my husband and we decided 9 years ago to build our dream home with the idea of building it entirely ourselves with our own money, so no builder or bank loan, Just hubby with an owner builders permit and me the lackie, gofer ha-ha!
Attached pics show day 1 and second photo taken last spring.
Cheers,
Barbara

Re: Introduce yourself to the community

Thanks for the reply Jason. MY next project you may have gathered is tiling!

I built a 4 room 'flat' inside my shed which was originally going to be just a fibreglass shower/toilet kit project to service my workshop, but I saw the potential for a better setup so continued constructing. I now want to tile the Kitchenette area mainly for the experience because it will involve tiles on the floor and tiles around taps etc. over a sink; something I have never tackled before. Any basic tips would be appreciated. Cheers.

Hi again @flash,

 

I'd encourage you to start a new discussion on the Interiors board about tiling. I'm sure there will be members of the community happy to share their tips and expertise.

Re: Introduce yourself to the community

Wow oh wow!!!
You & hubbie are an amazing team, & you've done something that I've always lusted to do.
Building your own home is the ultimate expression of purposeful achievement, & I'm sure you'll savour how some things fell into place, & the eventual conquering of the inevitable complications.
I tip my hat to you both.

Re: Introduce yourself to the community

And for something truly revealing about yourself - tell us what you call a barbecued sausage served on a single piece of bread.

 

We call them Tasmanian Sausages, because they're in-bread. ; )

 

Apologies any Tasmanians out there, I mean no offence, it was something random that popped into my kaleidoscopic brain many years ago.

Re: Introduce yourself to the community

Hi All

I'm Hilary andI LOVE doing DIY bits and pieces to my 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom unit. When I moved into my unit 7 or 8 years ago I fitted the laundry out with flatpack cupboards that I put together myself.

The unit has a surprisingly large garden for a unit (L-shaped and hugs the house) and I'm a woeful and very reluctant gardener. My favourite stores are hardware stores and I can spend hours just looking around and coveting.

My little home has become rather cluttered over time so my current mission is to work on interesting and improved ways to store 'stuff' that I can't bring myself to throw out. I am also keen to have a go at using handiblocks to build a small deck - mainly to prove that a 60-something woman can do it.

It's called a snanger of course.
