Well it’s been a while

But as the Busy Drag Queen would say “I’m busy”!!!!


Actually Brett is busy and I am tagging along.  We have decided it isn’t enough to have part of our house look like a demolition zone, we are going to take on another project.  The house across the road from Mum and Dad, on their farm is empty so we have agreed to buy it and will have it for holiday accommodation on bookabach.

The plan is to give it a bit of a make over and have it ready to book out by June.  But as you will see by the photos there is a wee way to go.  Brett has been a machine, I am calling him Demolition Man.  We are obviously getting professionals in for the building, plumbing and electrical stuff.  But when it comes to a vision and knocking walls down Mr B is your man.  When it comes to hurting yourself while helping with demolition, I is your woman.  I managed to trip over while taking stuff out to the rubbish pile.  So since then I have decided I can be most helpful, staying clear but making sure Demolition Man is well fed and watered.

We are going to call the house Okahukura LodgeImage

Looking down onto the Lodge from Mum and Dad’s

Okahukura is the original name for Tapora and it means Place of Rainbows.  Which I think is lovely.  Right now though it is place of gib and nails and dust.

Anyway if you are looking for a restful break in a farmhouse in the middle of the Northland countryside, very handy to a golf club, my parents and on a metal road.  Will I have a deal for you.
