A Moving Experience // Part 2: The New House

This is part two in a two part series on our moving experience. If you haven't read part 1 yet, you can read it here
Well, it's now time to give you a photographic tour of our new house and property. Ready or not... here we go.

First of all.... our front door... see the sign?

Close-up of the sign

Daddy fixing some of the fridge wiring

Piano and a bit of the lounge

Ben on an errand

Perfect spot on the lawn for the trampolines

Working hard outside (see swimming pool in background!!)

Jana' helping

Little miss adorable

Caleb watching the garden being hoed

Some boxes are now unpacked! A rather large pile, in fact. 

Some friends came and helped us hoe the garden, cut down trees and remove massive weeds

Our play equipment still exists :P

I love this photo! Am including it because the sky is blue and there are some pretty flowers... :) 

The upstairs room is the boy's bedroom; downstairs is Mum and Dad's.

Beautiful autumn colours

Our vehicles parked outside

Stuff still stacked in the garage awaiting time to put it in the house and somewhere to put it

Our office is just up those stairs on the mezzanine

Stuff everywhere and empty bookshelves (they are now filled, just saying) 

The hallway

Annnnnnnd that's all the photos I've got for you today. Maybe there will be more another time.

What's your favourite thing about the house you currently live in?
What are some features your 'dream house' would have?

  1. That is so wonderful that you're moving into a new house!!! New houses are always so exciting...especially when they come with a pool. :)

    1. IKR! :) New houses are awesome. Once you're a bit settled in.

  2. Looks like a lovely place!

  3. Ah! Bonnie! Home sweet home! What a blessing!

  4. Oh, it looks like such a nice place! Big yards are always a bonus blessing. :)
    When I saw your autumn colours photo, I was thinking "What?" Then I realized that your seasons are at different times than ours; it's quite a strange thought to me! ;)

    1. I know, right? It really is an amazing property that we have been blessed with!

      Haha, yes, you Americans are busy confusing me with your "Summer is nearly here!" posts. :P

  5. You're amazing writing these blogs. Lovely to see you getting settled into your new home. Looks so nice and lots of outdoor space.

    1. Why, thank you! :) You're so sweet! See you at Church sometime. :)

  6. It is so fun and exciting to move into a new house! I love the pictures that you took. It looks like you have a lot of space for your family to be together and enjoy the outside. How nice that you have a space for a garden! We have a garden as well and I love tending to it. Good luck with unpacking the rest of your boxes and I hope you enjoy your new home!

    1. I know! It is really fun and exciting (although hard work). We have done the settling in and are now enjoying the fruits of our labours. Thanks for your comment!
