my dream fixer-upper home

[Image Source]
I have decided the search for rental properties anywhere remotely near where we would like to live, at a price we could remotely afford, to be too downheartening, so today I bring you a piece of pure whimsy. I don't dream that big, honestly. I could show you some beautiful homes, the sort of thing you might contemplate buying if you won an awful lot of money. But this funny green house above is truly the house of our dreams. We love this style, with the exposed timber battons, it's in our favourite suburb, and amazingly it has a lot of space inside, and some really cute original features. It has a lock up garage (well, potentially with a bit of fixing-up). And it is just crying out for some TLC and sensitive renovations. The next best thing would be if someone open-minded about d-i-y tenants bought it and rented it to us for the next ten or so years.


  1. I get you Michelle. This is a great dream. So much better than living in a soulless, new McMansion type house. This seriously has potential. It just needs you to give it a little panel beat. Pruxxx P.S. I live in virtually of fibro shack and I adore it!

  2. I love how you are so true to yourself and you don't follow the pressures of having a house you see in a magazine. I also would like a house that needs some love. Where is the fun in building when you can find an old home and create it into something amazing! =)


Love to hear what you think!
