Well seeing as Im Aussie one of these is very important, so a definite must. The placement idea I have for it is basically built into the wall in a position overlooking the yard so we can watch the kids play while we cook. Not going to be stainless steel but natural local rock & wood cupboards. (Except the actual bbq)



We really want a swimming pool, but Im not interested in the modern ones. I really like the concept of it being in a natural setting with local rock or stone slabs. Here are some great ideas to inspire:

Veggie Garden:

reading & learning all I can about growing our own veggie patch. So far we haven’t had any luck with our flowers here. I don’t suppose planting them at the beginning of Winter was the smartest move. So neither of us was born with a green thumb but hopefully we can grow one 🙂

Lucky for us the land we bought was previously farm land…so there’s some good soil for experimenting.


outdoor comfort

I must admit I would probably go more for a hammock or swinging seat…but these look pretty comfy for a lazy day in the sun!

Im posting these as I dream of the summer to come….
