Had a great sleep in and then drove around to the harbour for a relax. Steve wanted to do some reading so we got straight into it. After breakfast Steve wanted morning tea, so went down to the Fish & Chip Shop for a small snack. He got talking to the owner about me wanting the Bookcafe over the road. She mentioned that it had been a number of things; including a B&B where the previous owner installed holes in the walls to peep on his clients! Great history! She also mentioned the current owner only paid $145,000 for the place just 2 years ago. Good ammo for getting it at a more realistic price. But we have to sell Mandurah to do it.
There are 4 bedrooms upstairs in the house that all have ensuite bathrooms. I’d love to convert the loft to an open plan apartment for us to live in and then update the bedrooms to include more modern bathroom appointments. It would be so much fun. I also miss not having a garden – and this one is perfect to play in. There is a lot of garden there already that needs a good clean up, but there would be great outside areas to set up café tables in etc. Steve’s not that convinced as yet. He just says its work, work and more work! Well I guess its all his doing as he has kept on at me to get a Soup Kitchen going…
Just been reading in Greenpages Magazine that Think Brick Australia has just opened up a display home in Seville Grove in WA that has an 8 * energy rated house. Although it’s a paid feature, still worthy of checking out if you’re interested in that sort of stuff. www.thinkbrick.com.au is the website.
Spent the best past of the windy afternoon trying to get the replacement aerial on behind the crockery cupboard – bugger of a job!
Had an interesting night on the jetty where the fishing boats are. Lots of people down for fish & chips as well as a bit of fishing off the jetty. Live music at the pub? Not sure if that’s good or not…
