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.

Australia Day

Hope everyone is enjoying Australia Day.

Tiler was expected today but he obviously decided to enjoy his Public Holiday. 
'Ceiling Batt' men were hard at work before the temperature peaked.....we took the opportunity to sweep the house through (again).

Tiles ready to go!


  1. Your is the cleanest house I've seen. We have plans in hand I am applying for developers approval myself this week we will see our builder rep on the weekend to go over them but on first glance they look pretty good so will know more after Sunday. At least we are now moving ahead at long last.

  2. Excellent news Janine, glad to hear the wheel is turning. Perhaps you'll be on your way by the end of February?

  3. I love the amount of light that you can get in the savannah... Are you going to use the little nook next to the theatre doors, as a study area, similar to the display?

  4. wow so clean!!! maybe i can give you a call to come and clean ours too! lol

  5. Shelley - we love the natural light, windows are filthy and some still have protective sheeting on them. We increased the nook 90mm to accommodate a sideboard and will paint as a feature wall.

    Tonia - Always have brooms in the car if the opportunity arises to get inside. Also, so much rubbish we pickup outside..what is the bin for!

  6. You house is looking great!! It has been a while since I've been on so it is awesome to see how much progress you are making!! I love your benchtops!
