I have been seriously missing in action! Half of March was spent back in a little town called Busselton, 250km south of Perth. Christoph and I had in December acquired house number 2 in Australia; an old brick house full of asbestos and bad taste from the 70s. We had our friend PM working on it for four weeks and I joined him for the last two weeks of the job to help with the finish.
The real beauty of the house lies in its plot size and location; 1023 sqm and a short stroll to the beach and two blocks to the main shopping/restaurant strip.
In my two weeks, I learnt to grout tiles, lay carpet, paint walls, ceilings and skirting boards and manage septic tank excavation work. You know, the usual household stuff.
Overall the house turned out well but just from looking at it, it's hard to tell what's been done. The house had a full overhaul with completely new plumbing, electrical wiring and comprehensive removal of asbestos throughout the entire property. We're happy with what was accomplished and now sit waiting for future tenants to move in :o)
