Just the Two of Us

Just the Two of Us

After 35+ years of marriage, two wonderful sons, living and working in Australia, Sweden, UK and USA we are now 'just the two of us' plus a very spoilt Shitzu.

Following five years at The Sandhurst Club it is time to downsize. Our criteria - build a new home in a development within ten minutes of John's Sandhurst Golf Club, access to Monash and Eastlink Freeways, all new infrastructure and proposed services, recycled water and no Management Company or Body Corporate Fees.

We invite you to view our journey as we build with Carlisle Homes our 'Savannah 28' at 'The Avenue at Casey', a masterplanned community meeting all our criteria.

Carlisle Homes Shutdown and MERRY XMAS TO EVERYONE

Carlisle officially shutdown for Xmas today.  We had a walkthru inspection with our SS on Tuesday who satisfactorily answered any questions we raised. Bricklayer had finished day before and plasterer was on site for any compliance work in preparation for painting.  House is 'Locked Up' and 'Fixing Complete' minus any shelving until after painting. Some Trades are working - possibly our Painter and SS expects bricks to be cleaned. Most downpipes were installed yesterday and garage has been measured for Panel-Glide door. Facade base render, caesarstone in kitchen, bathroom and ensuite expected next including electrical fit off and tiling before final plumbing fixtures, finishes etc. etc....  We are extremely pleased with the progress of our new house and looking forward to the inside transforming into our home. An exciting 2011 ahead.


  1. Howdee ho neighbour...
    We've just been checking out your beautiful home. It's so hard to drive out of the estate... I just wanna live there... Now!!!!!

    Merry Christmas to you, John and BonBon. Bring on 2011.

  2. Have you been there tonight? One of the few nights we both haven't visited as we weren't expecting any activity. Although I swung thru on the way home from work, can't help myself. So many houses commencing....just waiting on you and Janine. At this rate we will be checking out your builds on BonBon's evening walk. Can you believe all the display houses along Mountainview? So fast! A gorgeous entrance drive.

    Dear Reinsey, Loz and Janine and David - Safe and Merry Xmas. I'm sure we'll see you around during shutdown.

  3. Merry Christmas to you and your family! May 2011 bring you joy and happiness xo
