"You're building AGAIN!"
We're becoming used to the reaction now. Yes, it will be my fourth build. Our second together. One after the other.
When we started planning for our current home around seven years ago, we were planning for it to be our last. Lots and lots of planning. But the thing with plans...they change. And as much as we love this house - LOVE this house - two people and two fur kids do not need a 39 square home on one of the largest blocks in the estate. It's too big, and we've got too much living to do, so we're building some balance in Berwick.
The block is under contract and should be released for construction by the end of June or early July. And it's a beauty! At least 1/3 smaller than what we have now, it's on a corner, opposite parklands, and a short hop to the gorgeous wetlands that feature in our estate.
It's exciting. There's some sadness, in a reflective way, mixed in too. I hope the family who is lucky enough to buy our home has as many happy times here as we have.
We've changed. We're ready for more change. It's time for us to build balance. Ready...
