House Purchase Update

Image Via Pinterest

Sorry for my absence today. Have been running around 'due diligence-ing' my house block.

Due to a nasty 3 x 3 x 3 council truncation on the corner of the block, 2 little houses are just not going to be feasible.  I could have made it work somehow, as there is always a solution, but there was also the issue of beautiful council trees on the footpath that could not be removed... making it impossible for me to put the garage of one house on the boundary.... to best utilize every square metre I have. 

I went back to the house this afternoon and sat in the gutter opposite, chin on my knees... waiting for the universe to speak to me... to tell me what to do. I tried to picture the best outcome for this lovely block. I have a 40m frontage. In the past I have only dreamt of having a frontage this big to work with! These big double blocks, with city views, are as rare as hen's teeth..... so I've decided to go for the biggie. One big house. That said, more obstacles can still come my way. I'm still investigating council restrictions, services and demolition issues. Lot's to do before I go unconditional next week.

I found this message in my inbox tonight: 

Fear, A-M, like joy, usually means that you're exactly where you should be, learning what you're ready to learn, about to become more than who you were.

    The Universe

My heart is racing...... so I must be right where I should be.

Back tomorrow.
Have a great night.


  1. One big house. Can't wait to see what u cone up with.
    I too get messages from The Universe like that. Not quite as good as that one though. My day will come soon x
    Have a great weekend

  2. I know you are apprehensive, but it does all sound very exciting at the same time. Good luck and trust your gut. Tx

  3. Whatever decision you make will be wonderful. You've got this girl!

  4. Oh Darling Heart! You will make this work. It's time The Universe gave you a break ☺. J x

  5. Awesome A-M! I literally cannot wait, you must be beside yourself with excitement ahh the possibilities!Have a Beautiful weekend xx

  6. The Universe has never directed me to buy a large block of land with city views and huge frontage, only to bake, but I say Heed Its Call!!

    I ignore a Baking Direction at my own peril- you should be a Joiner and follow my path!

    Good Luck with your new Journey!


  7. How exciting, A-M! I can't wait to follow the progress of your new house build.

    (Am bursting to know where it is!)

  8. Regardless of which way you decide to go with - I know it will be THE best decision. Believe in yourself - we believe in you.


  9. Fingers crossed everything falls into place for you A-M.

    Friends of ours were going to do 2 on the one large block and instead they have done one big house and it is looking amazing.

    Great message in your inbox, just follow your gut feelings.



  10. Sending Love, support and GOOD VIBRATIONS Mx

  11. You'll figure it out A-M. Breathe.... Let it come:-)

  12. A-M, I've been sick the past few days, bad allergies, so I'm just getting caught up. I hope you can sense me jumping up and down that you have finally found a place where you can work your magic! 1 house or doesn't matter, what matters is that you are doing what you love and we get the added benefit of coming along for the beautiful and exciting ride! Congrats! xoxo


  13. Thank you! I am breathing. I was nudged along a decision path yesterday in the most amazing way. My friend, who visited the block with me, noticed things that I hadn't, which lead me to further investigations and then a spontaneous session with my town planner, who kindly spent ages with me without my having an appointment! I sat and watched the sun set over the block which helped solidify my decision. With peace comes clarity! A-M xx

  14. All the best A-M with your knew build. I am a great believer in things happen for a reason and sometimes the universe knows best! Cannot wait to see what you come up with.

  15. You are a problem solver and you just take one step at a time and keep moving forward......Anytime you face an obstacle you have the ability to create a solution!!! Trust yourself!

  16. Things happen for a reason, of this I'm convinced.
    All because of a tree.

    You know I'm beyond excited about the new plan because it's as it should be.

  17. Congratulations on the property. Love Posie

  18. Dear A-M, fantastic news about your latest purchase, congratulations! I bet your head is racing with wonderful ideas.

    So glad to hear you are building a home using the entire block to your advantage and not subdividing. (I would prefer much less subdividing in our character suburbs).

    I am sure whatever you turn your mind to will be a winner.

  19. How are you getting such wonderful messages from the universe? What is her email address? I could do with this guidance:).
    It will be wonderful because you will make it wonderful. Just remember we are always here to bounce ideas of:)


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you. A-M xx
