Inbox Week: Sandie's House


Look at the beautiful home one of my readers, Sandie, is building! Sigh... roof tiles, sigh.... cupola (her builder just whipped it up based on a drawing she did!)... and the essential gable vent... good to see! ... I'm rather fond of gable vents... features in my business logo.


Sandie has overseen the whole project with meticulous care. Oh, the 4 by 1 double hungs... see why she is after my own heart! Love the colour, love the stone, love the dormers. I think there is an old house under there somewhere? Sandie has completely transformed the style of the home and added and removed and built out and up. She's a dynamo. I could just imagine her on site!


.... and from the back.... gorgeous! Love the roof line.

They are only a few weeks away from moving in. I'll see if I can twist Sandie's arm for more photos. She bought some of my lights so we need to see them in situ!

Happy Wednesday!

  13. Ooooh, what a beautiful home! Yes, you HAVE to post pictures of the interior when it's all done!

    Love the windows and the pergola at the back of the house, and the lovely front porch. Am I seeing things, or is that a smiley face on the front door? :-)

  19. Dear A-M, I have been following your blog for a long time now, and my dream home is a Hampton style home, though I fear that asking Aussie builders to build one is going to be very difficult.

    But you inspire me with the home you built before, and then there is this friend of yours, her home looks stunning! You HAVE to tell her to go online and share her story with all of us. We are desperate to find out where she sourced her materials, such as that roof, etc. etc. Her paint colours are spot on too. Please give us more info!! This gives me hope that I might be able to build my dream home in this country of poor building standards!
