If it helps - we'd recommend having a look at home magazines and having some idea of what kind of colours you'd like!

It sure is! Whenever we visit we don't really see anyone around. But we'll try to keep an eye out for you.

Let us know how it goes.
Does anyone know if stockland/council are going to do anything about the bridge that has water issues? (the one that floods when it rains)

Nothing wrong with paying a little more for electricals. We found our electrical lady was very helpful, practical and not pushy. Plus the cost of upgrading the electricals wasn't that…

Hey kek
We've been watching the progress of the parkland development also! It's coming along nicely. Love the path. Do you think they'll be putting bike tracks in?
