We have moved house. We are now living in Balhannah, a little further into the Adelaide Hills. It was a major project. We hired a van for 3 days to move everything but the big furniture. On the last day we had friends come and help to get all the regular furniture to the house. We managed EVERYTHING including our pianola which weighs well over a Ton.
Our new house
It’s a log cabin, well it has 5 bedrooms so not really a cabin but a log home. The area is not quite as fire prone but I’m sure we wouldn’t be staying to defend it in a crisis.
Here is our new living room. It’s a living room, dining room, family room area. This is our furniture.
The above picture is the kitchen area this is not our stuff but a photo taken by the agent. (Note to self. Find amazing skull stools to replace).
I have an office with a separate door and a car port. I can drive straight up and unload my equipment. I have a table and shelves so far. Trip to IKEA is on the cards to kit it out with a sofa and some lovely things. I know it’s not for anything, I always attend antenatals at peoples homes but I love the thought of my own space and the fact that my papers etc may eventually get sorted.
We also have another living room and a sun room. Here is the view from the sun room.
We already feel much happier. The other house never really suited us. Once again school has come up. We are today going to look at Oakbank. Rex and Spike want to attend. Jos doesn’t but will have no choice if the others decide to go. Oak bank is an area school reception to year 12 with about 300 children. In senior school you can do horse racing and viticulture. They have chickens and veggie gardens. This is what we have been told. Today we find out for ourselves. A nice feral school would be good!!
