OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG….. I think I’ve found The One. You remember a while ago I was telling you about my dream property? The one with the unapproved river crossing that fucked everything up in terms of me building my home on it… Well today there was a property listed, with a house, just a bit up the road from it!! The house is ok, the kitchen and bathroom need a bit of updating, but it’s all got a LOT of potential. And the price is right. And it has river frontage. And it has mostly bush. It even has a little caravan with an annex on it as a “guest house”.
I’ve left a message with the agent… just hope he gets back to me today so that I can see it this weekend. How on earth am I sposed to concentrate for the rest of the afternooon?????? I can’t stop looking at the listing photos and dreaming of all the stuff I want to do. Umm… this is the part where I’m sposed to remind myself not to get too excited but fuck I almost feel high!
I hope all this good news will excuse my absence 🙂 Things have been pretty hectic lately but don’t think I haven’t been thinking of you. Au contraire! I’ve thought of a dozen posts I want to post so I promise I’ll make more time for you. Hell I type like a maniac so I promise I won’t stay away so long again.
Particularly not when this could be it!!!!!! It’s got 4 bedrooms, master with ensuite (and walk in robe!) and main bathroom has a clawfoot tub even! No walk in pantry but I may be able to incorporate one with my kitchen reno. It has solar hot water already and does have mains power but I can disconnect that once I’ve got the solar electricity installed. I actually like the fact that the kitchen and bathroom need updating so that I can put exactly what I want in there. Only thing I’m not happy with is the fact that it’s not on a concrete slab. But I won’t hold that against it 🙂
And don’t get me wrong. I still really do want to build my own place but if I can find a place that is pretty bloody good in the place that I want to be with all the other things on my list ticked…. I’m not going to complain or turn it aside. I probably won’t be able to build on that bit of land later on because of all the council shite (I have to cross the same river crossing to get to my property….) but I’m OK with that.
Did I mention the gorgeous grassy picnic area by the river? Or the fact that it’s already got a chook shed and veggie patch? AND satellite interwebs? omgomgomgomgomg!!!! 🙂
