We have lived in some interesting little "abodes" (I will call them that because many of them where on wheels).
First up we have the home we owned, (we sold this back in 2007)
It was in a lovely part of the Gold Coast Hinterland in qld. We renovated it between working and raising our little family.
We ripped up the ugly carpet and laid nice big tiles, mmm hard work, but the end result was so worth it.
Most of the furniture came from second hand shops, garage sales and the rest my husband made/built.
Our main bedroom was simple but comfortable.
As the kids ( I cant really call them that anymore..but they will always be my little kids), anyways as they all slowly moved out to start their grown up lives, I found I had a spare room.
I had the pleasure of looking after my sweet little Princess of a granddaughter a few days and nights through the week so this was her room and a also study.
The only bathroom in the house. ( was well used)
and the laundry.
The home was on a 1/4 of an acre and had a lovely salt water pool.
The kids all grew up and left home so hubby and I took the opportunity..
it was time to sell up and hit the road.....That brings us to our next abode
A 1983 austral tour master partly converted into a motor home. ( named "WANAGO")
As we do, we did a little reno on her before we took off on our grand adventure ( well hubby virtually ripped the insides out and started again, but as you will see he did a great job on her reno).
That's a little on our "bouse" house, you can read more over here at Living in the bus, our cottage on wheels. (we still have our lovely motor home, but will be selling her soon, as its to big for just the two of us and I would love someone to be enjoying her.)
Next up we bought
This one was Ok, well we had some fun doing her up
you can read a little more about Ruby Rosebud the little motor home Over here .
Now onto the next cottage on wheels
The Caravan a 1977 Viscount 18ft
OK now when we got this one I thought, this is it, this is what we are going to live and travel in....
we again stripped her insides out and re-vamped, we had her parked in my sisters front yard and it was great, I got to see my lovely sisters ( all 4 of them) any time I wanted.
Then next,, one day I just woke up and felt it was time to move on , I was missing our kids and I just needed a change from a cottage on wheels, I felt I needed to be grounded in a real life planted in the ground cottage!!!
We sold Bo Jangles, packed up a trailer, came back to qld to stay with the kids until we found our little rental cottage we are in now.. we picked up the bouse "Wanago" from storage, she is sitting in our paddock, and what comes next???? who knows...???.... But I am sure whatever we are up to will be coming to you via this little blog ;-)
check in from time to time to see what we have been up to xx Kris
