family house

orange makes a great ground
So we moved in in October 2010. As you can see from the nine month gap in postings, the house became a home and getting it liveable became the priority. We also ran into some serious problems with our builder which made the whole process of getting into the house strained and difficult. The joy and excitement of the blog was overshadowed by long complicated emails to the builder, the subs and finally to lawyers. However, we love the house and are settling in well to it. It is, as hoped, a wonderful family house.

I have been taking process shots all along the way and will add them as chronologically as I can. We are about to embark on the landscaping (!) so I will also post some discussion of my inspirations and how that design process is going.

The pictures in this post all show the ways that the kids have modified the house to make it theirs.
